Nothing... most info in first 9 chapters are not new info than Burn the fat and Feed the muscle book.
No. Due to missing chapters.
Not as good as Tom Venuto's. Takes a bit of getting used to - which I never did.
Give me the missing chapters - I bought this book just for those chapters.
yes, yes, yes !!
it sets the mind to get your goal !
Yeah !! good narration !
Make up Your mind !!
Thank you ! I leave a whole lot !
Loved this book, it was honest about the reasons we keep ourselves from losing weight & why we gain it back.
Just love books.
I found that his knowledge and experience shone through.
No false promises, no shortcuts just some doable solutions to helping you get to your goal.
Definitely not, mispronounces words and is obtrusively expressive. Annoyed me immensely.
honest, factual, informed
a great load of info on diet & exercise
the guy reading it was awful. just very boring. could make harry potter read like a text book. poor choice there
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.
This is my 2nd favorite book by this Author. (Burn the fat feed the muscle also by Tom Venuto is newer than this and much better) but no matter how much I have learnt about fat loss, I always come back to reading both books, as it's a great way to keep everything fresh in my mind. Tom always makes a good job of explaining complicated topics like this much easier to palletize, and these books both now being accessible in audio format like this, really helps me to re-listen as many times as I want, right from my iPhone! Well done Tome, and well done Amazon for creating audible for this purpose!
This book has a lot of practical advice on calories and just eating what you need for energy with a lean towards weight based exercise. Basically calories in versus calories out, which most of us probably know this already but it was easy to listen to and great for resetting your mindset allowing for better decision making about food choices. Good book for dipping in and out to keep the mind focused.
I have found The Body Fat Solution to be an extremely helpful aid in my weight loss journey. Tom Venuto writes in a logical and well thought out manner. He tackles every obstacle you could come across and helps you to pin point beliefs you did not realize were standing in your way of progress. Loved listening to this, was one of the best audio books I have bought. Would highly recommend to anyone interested in loosing weight and getting in great shape.
This book is terrible. It has no coherent thesis nor arguement. Do not buy this book.
"Reasons not to waste your time with this"
The central tenet of this audiobook is misguided when viewed from a health point of view (stating you can eat anything in moderation - which, to be fair to the title of the book, is true from a body fat point of view). The author knows, as he states it several times, that weight, fitness and health are all important but completely ignores this with some of this methods. Also, it takes a long time to go anywhere and could have been accomplished in half the time or less.
Finally, I don't know why the author didn't do the narration (as his introduction was fine); the chosen narrator sounds like an American newsreader and has the emphasis of sentences all over the place in addition to a strange take on tempo.
"Can't wait to put it in practice"
This is my first review, love this book as it's all encompassing, aimed at all levels and I now know exactly what I need to do to achieve my goals with health and weight loss. Thank you Tom Venuto.
