    "this book is a game-changer for me."

    In early January 2016 I went to see an MD/nutritionist based out of my general physician's office (which has been absorbed into a huge corporate health care entity), for the purpose of getting my act together and losing about 30 lbs. I came away shocked by how lame it was - $200 later all I had to show for it was a couple of non-customized meal plans (starvation-level and calorie deficit) that I could have downloaded from the Internet, no guidance, no context, no firm goals or timeline, and a prescription for an appetite suppressant. Oh, and the doctor did manage to steer me past the part of the office where they conveniently sell diet supplements and powdered drinks. So, nothing but a $$$$ marketing exercise for them and a waste of time for me. I went home and started to do some research and, long story short, picked up BTF FTM on audible and started listening. BAM! Less than five minutes into the audiobook I knew I had made the right selection. Right off, Tom Venuto (who narrates) addresses the four pillars of weight control- mental, nutrition, cardio, strength training, and provides the roadmap to get there. He is direct, brutally honest, detailed, and powerfully motivating. I feel I'm back on track after my discouraging visit to the so-called nutritionist. THANK YOU TOM!

    "The best information out there!"
    What did you love best about Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle?

    This book teaches you exactly what and how to eat in order to improve your body. It exposes the fad diets and nonsense in the fitness industry.


    What other book might you compare Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle to and why?

    None! Most of the other stuff I read is all garbage.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book for anyone trying to lose weight, or get in shape! This book will make you understand all the nonsense and lies in the fitness industry, It all comes down to proper nutrition, and realistic training routines that work for you! The author is honest enough to say that each person is different, and listening to what works for someone else may only lead to frustration. Most books are about theory, however, this book is about results! I have made more improvements shortly after reading this book than in my last five years.of training. I listened to trainers and websites claiming to give good advice, but the sad reality is that most people out there preaching don't know what they are talking about. Just because someone looks good doesn't mean they can help you. They may have lost weight, and will only gain it back after they can not keep up their deprived diet. They might be on steroids. They might have good genes. They may have $$$ profits as their priority. You should listen to someone who can help you become the best version of yourself There is no magic solution, and the author will help you understand that. This book sold so many copies because the author brings to true value to the consumer. He will give you the foundation of nutrition and training to modify your body at will....assuming your have the will power and discipline to do it.

    "Excellent! No BS"

    The audio version of the book is great. I would recommend still buying the paper back book to be able to go back for quick reference.

    I've been training for 8 months and came across this book. Tom does an excellent job at explaining and providing solid road map for losing body fat naturally. I love chapters 16-19. Also chapter 6 is a must read as well. Excellent book if you are serious about getting into shape.

    "He just makes sense where other dont"
    Would you listen to Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle again? Why?

    Absolutely! The book is well written. The best authors make difficult subjects tangible for the layman. He has done that in this book and I personally am approaching my fitness differently because of it.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to start to improve their fitness, whether you are 300kg or an athlete. The content is perfect to improve your current situation regardless of your level. I love the fact this is not an overnight solution, but rather a lifestyle change that the author somehow makes you the reader, want to adopt.

    "A must have reference and guide"
    If you could sum up Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle in three words, what would they be?

    Realistic, evidence based


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book is thorough, based on good science and solid experience. It is not extreme or a fad in any form. It's easy to understand, has thorough explanations and the PDF charts actually worked! I just finished it then I bought the paperback to write in and I'll listen to it again! This is a great book for beginners and for those who want to take their physique up a notch.


    What about Tom Venuto’s performance did you like?

    He was easy to understand.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me want to create a food plan and hit the gym...which I did!

    "Must have for your Fitness Library"

    I found this book to be informative, thorough, and easy to follow. Tom Venuto took the myths, the science, the trends and all marketing schemes and boiled down the principles into 4 categories.

    1. Nutrition
    2. Strength training
    3. mental training
    4. Cardio

    "Get This Book Now - You Will Not Regret!"

    I highly recommend this book - it is a well-written (and spoken) definitive manual on fitness. I already own the physical book, and was pretty stoked to learn that this audio book was available and narrated by the author himself - Tom Venuto. His writing style and oratory skills really help the listener understand the fundamentals of fitness, beginning with 1) Goal-setting 2) Nutrition 3) Cardio and 4) Strength Training.

    I often listen to this book whenever I'm lifting weights, running, or cycling. It helps to reinforce my understanding of the methods I've chosen to burn fat and build muscle. I also thoroughly enjoying learning about Calories, and the macro nutrients: Proteins, Carbs, and Fats. Tom presents the information in such a manner that it sticks with you. You'll want to listen to this audio book again and again.

    Kudos to the author!

    "What a Genius this man is!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle the most enjoyable?

    I am a qualified fitness instructor and currently studying personal training and clinical nutrition. This is the best audio book I have listened to and teaches you the correct methods of helping you get to the best shape in your life. The four principles of mental, cardio, resistance and nutrition training are very well explained in in good depth. I am now a follower of Tom venuto and hope to someday have the level of knowledge he has in order to help others get the best from a fit and healthy lifestyle.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The narrator Is great. Tom's first book used a different narrator which was a shame as tom's voice is much kinder to the ears and in a pleasant manner. Well done!!


    What about Tom Venuto’s performance did you like?

    Great performance.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Tom tells his story of how he archieved his goals from being a fattish guy to a many time winner of bodybuilding competitions. Great storyline.


    Any additional comments?

    Very much recommended.

    "What it says on the cover"
    Would you listen to Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle again? Why?

    This is a regular listen, so much info, well presented and applicable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Author's own story told by him. Though it's a technical book rather than a story he is engaging and measured.


    Which character – as performed by Tom Venuto – was your favourite?

    Not applicable as this is a technical book but Tom is a good reader.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    How to stop being fat.


    Any additional comments?

    Bin the diets and fads this is real world information we all know works - eat less and exercise more - to get fit. The difference is Tom goes into the why's and how's, what works and what doesn't and how to make it work for us mere mortals who have a life outside the gym.

    "Quite Simply, Phenomenal"

    As someone who is relatively new to keeping fit and getting healthy, I'm soaking up every piece of advice I can get my hands on. Trouble is, so much of it is conflicting. What I needed was a level headed explanation of the health and fitness minefield backed up with facts, minus the typically biased opinion of the author.

    I think this is it. And it's very comprehensive.

    I listened to this book quicker than any other audiobook I have owned. Which is praise in itself. However, this book encouraged me to change my weekly workout routine due to its simple explanation of why I should and what I can expect if I do.

    The change in my approach worked even better than I hoped/thought it would. However, on reflection, the most profound change was mentality. Somehow, the book has armed me with facts, details, knowledge and confidence that has ignited something inside me. All the different facets of health, fitness and nutrition have seeped into my subconscious so that I have far more positive, far more intense workouts - cardio and gym have both benefited massively.

    Subsequently, I have purchased the book, too. :)

    "Useless as a reference"

    Great great content. But as a reference, or for repeat listens, the lack of chapter titles or information make this a very boring book. One listen, fine. Want to go back and remind yourself of certain parts? Oh you need to create bookmarks to do that. Yeah audible that is not going to happen. Why not give purchasers a contents page? Gaaaaahhh

    The level of detail in this book is just at the right level for the average fitness enthusiast. I'm a personal trainer and I easily followed this but my partner needed areas explained.
    Mainly focused on performance athletes or those wishing to be but all the same a good level of detail over mental, nutritional and physical aspects of the healthy lifestyle.
