    I found that his knowledge and experience shone through.


    What did you like best about this story?

    No false promises, no shortcuts just some doable solutions to helping you get to your goal.


    Would you be willing to try another one of L. J. Ganser’s performances?

    Definitely not, mispronounces words and is obtrusively expressive. Annoyed me immensely.

    No

    Story
    "Meh."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I got this audiobook hoping for some inspiration and a different mindset towards the way I think about food. Unfortunately, every time I tried to listen to the book I would get incredibly bored and would notice 10 minutes later I hadn't listened to a word. I still have 3 hours left and am ready to move on to something else. I will say, the reiteration of the "calorie deficit" has stuck with me and I tend to think about it more when I am choosing my food. I think I read in some other reviews that the author didn't actually perform the reading - if that's the case I would hope the author would find someone else to read his other work.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tom Venuto again?

    No

    "Great book for every(body)"
    Would you listen to The Body Fat Solution again? Why?

    I probably wouldn't listen to it again, I have the concept and the understanding I needed, and it will serve me for a lifetime. I am in good shape, I'm 52 and have always exercised regularly. I hear family and neighbors spout off about some 'certain' diet, bla bla bla, but have never heard an explanation like this, one that makes sense to me and will always be in vogue. Stop eating so much. That's it. Don't deny yourself anything, just keep it to a good portion. Start doing weight workouts (I do about 5-7/ week now). I never knew how important it was until I read this book. Without trying at all I dropped about ten pounds in two months and feel good all the time. I eat carbs, I eat cookies, I eat hamburgers, I drink beer. But not too much of any of it. It really changed my life.

    I have NO time to read so Audible is perfect! I listen while commuting and even at the gym. My interests vary from month to month.

    Story
    "Old Uncle Ned's Fitness Advice?"

    I couldn't listen a minute without thinking that I was being lectured by my high school science teacher or my annoying Uncle Ned. I had to remind myself every 5 minutes that I was getting advice from a fit youngish trainer to keep from shutting it off.

    The first half of the book basically tells you to get your mind right, the second half gives you tips on eating and exercising. What he says is good and practical. Not alot of new information. But in all honesty. Science is the same and our body's are too. We can only be told the same story so many times before we just have to take it for what it is and just do it. I can definitely see how putting his ideas into application would get me to my goal.

    Story
    "Solid"
    What made the experience of listening to The Body Fat Solution the most enjoyable?

    This book was not kooky and it did not lean too heavily on one culprit as being the cause of obesity. The author went back to the basics.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Diet books always have a hook. They'll focus on one thing like: insulin control, mind control, eliminating certain food groups, or eating at specific times.This book contends that there is no new "magic bullet" for weight loss. It is by far the most reasonable diet/exercise book that I've read. Venuto reiterates simple ideas that dieters already know, but need to hear again.


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

    I have fallen for diet plans that say carbs, sugar, emotions, the hormones insulin, ghrelin, and leptin, or wheat products are the sole contributors to weight gain. Many of these books were written by doctors. Tom Venuto believes that all of these things are a piece of the puzzle, and he prescribes calorie restriction and challenging workouts as an antidote. It's not new, exciting news, but the reader will know immediately that this guy got it right.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to this book while working out--a great motivator.

    Story
    "Most Realistic Fitness Read"
    Where does The Body Fat Solution rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the top 5. Appreciated that he took the time to read the Intro. The reader for the bulk of the book did well...nice tone and intonation.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Body Fat Solution?

    Tom's no nonsense but encouraging introduction.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This is non-fiction. I especially like Tom's goal setting process.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Realistic fitness lifestyle changes for anyone, any age any shape.


    Any additional comments?

    Tom backs up his publications with a fitness community website that has helped hundreds/thousands of people get in better shape. He personally takes the time to answer questions and gets involved with members on the online forums. He likes to give kudos to those who succeed. (There are fitness contests throughout the year). I hope he writes a book geared more for those who have to lose 100 lbs or more. He has some sound goal setting strategies, but it would help even more if there was a strategy set out especially for the most struggling crowd.
