Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle makes some outrageous claims, has a bunch of
larger-than-life testimonials, and costs more than your average hardcover book. When scrolling through the (very
long) official website, your mind will be racing with questions wondering if it’s a scam or a legitimate program,
because you have to admit, the concept behind the program is very intriguing.
It’s getting harder every day to distinguish the legitimate fat loss programs from the
ones that are nothing but scams, so…
Before you decide to purchase Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle, let’s
put it to the test.
First, the author, Tom Venuto has been featured on hundreds of websites as well as in
magazines such as Natural Bodybuilding & Fitness, Ironman, Men’s Exercise and Men’s Fitness. Tom is also the
author of a hardcover national best-seller, The Body Fat Solution (Penguin/Avery books). There was even a blurb
about his latest book in Oprah Magazine.
Venuto is a bodybuilder – in fact, his whole system is based on “fat-burning secrets of
bodybuilders and fitness models.” Looking at his pictures, you can see that he is beyond good shape, the guy
is jacked and six-packed. You’d be tempted to scream “Steroids” except that Venuto says he’s lifetime natural
and has competed in drug-tested competitions for more than 20 years.

After a little more research, you’ll find that Burn The Fat was released in 2002 and was
the #1 e-book best-seller for 4 years in a row. Most Internet weight loss programs haven’t even been around that
long, let alone topped the charts that long. Also, New York City publishers and major magazines like Men’s Fitness
don’t give the time of day to fly-by-night Internet marketers, so there’s some credibility.
But the real question is, does the program actually
The claim made by Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle is that bodybuilders and fitness models
are the leanest athletes in the world. Venuto himself was 3.7% body fat at one point (note: on the day of a
contest). Therefore, says Venuto, if you find out how bodybuilding, fitness and figure competitors get so lean and
you do the same thing, you will get the same results. It makes sense. However, there’s no magic solution
From reading Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle, you learn
that you won’t get 6-pack abs or a body like a fitness model by training a few minutes a day and eating
You learn that to get lean you have to change your lifestyle and adopt new habits to
replace the old ones that made you fat. You learn that to get “ripped” it takes an even more regimented nutrition
When looking at the Burn The Fat website, you’ll see a home page plastered with
testimonials from people of all ages. Since it’s impossible to be sure these testimonials/people are real, a little
outside research is in order. What you’ll find on a web search is a free discussion forum called the Burn The Fat
Facebook group, which has several thousand members who support each other to implement the program.
You’ll also find several Burn The Fat Yahoo groups. There is also a paid online support
community (sponsored by Venuto), called the Burn The Fat Inner Circle, with thousands of members using the Burn The
Fat system. Membership to this site is optional and doesn’t come with the e-book.
With a little more online research, it’s easy to find positive reviews and before and
after photos of people who have successful used Burn The Fat to lose weight. You’ll also find some YouTube videos
and blogs devoted to chronicling the training journals and nutrition programs of fat burners.
It’s hard to dispute that Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle is one of the most established fat
loss programs online. Not only is third party proof all over the Internet, this program has been around since
2002. A program just can’t survive that long on the web if there isn’t good word of mouth. And of course, we know
this method has worked for bodybuilders for decades.
The final question then becomes, will it work for
Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle is a best seller and there’s proof that it
works. But it will probably appeal the most to a certain kind of person. First, it takes effort and a
significant time investment. It trades focus, dedication and hard work to get significant, permanent and
natural fat loss (as opposed to some rapid fat loss programs where you’re required to take drugs or supplements and
where the weight is a lot more likely to come back).
Another thing to know is that the main focus of the e-book is on nutrition, and it
requires counting calories and crunching numbers to create menu plans. There’s a lot of value in that kind of
precision, but this approach may not be for everyone. Some people prefer to just estimate portion
Burn The Fat is probably ideal for people who need structure, enjoy planning and are
detail-oriented (accountants, engineers, math buffs and other analytical types will be in seventh heaven). If you
like to know WHY you’re doing something instead of just being told WHAT to do, you’ll appreciate the detail in the
300+ pages. It’s definitely thorough. Encyclopedic even.
If you want a quick fix weight loss solution, if you’re looking for what pill to take or
if you’re not willing to exercise, then Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle is probably not for you.
On the other hand, if you’ve tried all the diet trends and fads, if you really want to
know the (sometimes uncomfortable) truth about fat loss and if you have the discipline to make lifestyle changes,
then you’ll find Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle to be an excellent investment that delivers what it promises – you
burn off the fat, you keep your muscle and you don’t have to starve yourself to do it.
It may not be for everyone, but it’s no scam. Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle is legitimate
and effective. You can learn more at the official website at http://www.BurnTheFat.com
