Tom talks sense. It is good to see a person with no affiliation to muti-billion $ supplementary company coming up with a solution. It is a good reminder to all of us to do the work and expect results- there are no quick fixes
This is an excellent way to go about dieting and your health. No lose weight fast or gimmick diets. Just the facts. And it works!!!
The book itself is good. Lots of information that isn't new, but that is good to be reminded. What was disappointing is that there was no effort to make it anything other than a book that is read to you by someone else. Inappropriate for a book of this type. With a small amount of effort and a producer it could have been an audio book that you use over and over and it becomes motivation for your program. So get the book or get another audio that is billed as an enhancement to your workout program because this isn't it.
This book is very comprehensive and quite informative. I really enjoyed this book. I have read many books on fitness and diet, this may be the best I have read. Highly reccomend.
This is a long book that isn't what the title leads you to believe. The majority of this books time is spent telling you how everyone else has failed and not how to make the changes to succeed. It seems that by trying to compair so many other "body fat" solutions you really don't know what the solution is. I really feel if the author would have simply taken his time to write about his solution it would have been a more interesting read and perhaps something you could actually follow. This is not a memorable book and not something I would suggest.
Venuto brings nothing new to the table. He merely repeats the basic tenets of successful weight loss. Very disappointing. May be ideally suited for someone who know nothing about weight loss, and needs motivation to initiate a lifestyle change.
This book is filled with advice on limiting beliefs and ways to change our attitude. It's filled with ways to change our beliefs, our relationship with food and how to deal with emotional eating. Having it as an audiobook allows me to have bookmarks at key points and everyday I hear them when driving the car or walking the dog, times when reading isn't possible.
Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle is another great book by Tom Venuto, though slightly different. The Body Fat Solution focus greatly on beliefs, attitude and emotional eating, the parts about training are not as complete. Both are great books that complement each other.
I found his reading convincing and engaged. It's a great narration of the book.
This is not a movie type book.
This book has been pivotal in helping me lose body fat despite my habits of eating healthy foods and working out 5-6x/week. This book addresses the psychology of losing fat and the influences of your social circles, goal setting and time management. More so he makes it simple to follow with enough comprehensive material to make a complete reference I've completed listening to twice.
I've struggled with weight all my life. Although I have brief periods of good weight and training habits, I have been unable to keep the weight. This has been due to several reasons: lack of motivation for exercise (I hate sports), lack of focus and self motivation when it comes to diet and finally a confusion around which "diet" works best. So I've been experimenting with everything from low-carb, "raw food", vegan and even fasting. The secret is that almost all of these diet programs ("weird stuff" as Tom Venuto would call them) work! At least for a while, and Tom explains why that is but also why they are not long-term solutions.
This book changed everything for me, which is weird since I thought of myself as a true expert in all the details of nutrition and weight loss. It combines the best and most truthful facts and best practices into a very straight-forward method that is easy to embrace. It helps to change habits and patterns instead of promising a quick-fix. Also the book is very inspirational and boosted my self confidence and motivation.
So all in all, I've literally thrown out all other books on the subject and read The Body Fat Solution three times now, so happy that I found it.
