Excellent for any one serious about fat loss

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!!!

Not in Audio

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.

Fantastic book

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.

nothing really new but nicely put

I like how he sums up all you need to know about managing your weight and how he doesn't sugar coat it!

not what it seems

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.

hated it

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.

Couldn't finish listening

Would you try another book from Tom Venuto and/or L. J. Ganser?

Love Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle by Tom Venuto, I couldn't take the narrator - I had to stop listening!

Has The Body Fat Solution turned you off from other books in this genre?

The sample reader is Tom Venuto, and his voice is catchy and keeps me listening. The actual narrator, L.J. Gander was robotic, and I had to stop listening.

How could the performance have been better?

Put human emotion into it. It was too robotic.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Frustration

Life changing

Would you consider the audio edition of The Body Fat Solution to be better than the print version?

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.

What other book might you compare The Body Fat Solution to and why?

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.

What about L. J. Ganser’s performance did you like?

I found his reading convincing and engaged. It's a great narration of the book.

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

This is not a movie type book.
