Publisher's Summary

End Emotional Eating - Reprogram Your Mind for Success - Get Mega Motivated - Never Diet Again!

Tapping into his decades of personal training experience, Tom Venuto will help you change your relationship with food and take charge of your life, and he delivers a step-by-step program that promises dramatic and permanent results. An eating plan is just one part of this program. The Body Fat Solution is neither super low carb nor super low fat, and the author steers clear of demonizing entire food groups.

    "Good solid, sensible advice....."
    What made the experience of listening to The Body Fat Solution the most enjoyable?

    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.


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

    No

    "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

    "Excellent Book"

    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!

    "Helpfull"

    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.

    "Excellent"

    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.

    "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.
