As I develop nutrition plans for my patients I will frequently reference the precepts outlined in Tom Venuto's brilliant e-book Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle. Honestly, I found this e-book to be a very approachable and comprehensive volume dealing with nutrition, exercise and hormonal physiology. (I would highly recommend this e-book for anyone who wants a more detailed explanation of macronutrients, hormonal physiology, and meal planning.) However, The Body Fat Solution is an indispensable development to this excellent work.
In my experience patients do not struggle as much with "what to do" but rather struggle with "the doing of it". In the first few consultations with a new patient I can usually disarm the passionate obsession with whatever flavor of macronutrient phobia they have and outline the physiological rational behind consistently eating a calorie based diet of lean protein, whole unprocessed foods, and essential fats. In this motivational clinical setting most patients will readily agree to begin journaling and commit to starting an exercise and nutrition program.Read more ›
In my second attempt to lose 70+ lbs I struggled with an incredibly slow rate of loss, to the tune of an (on average) a half pound a week while following two very popular commercial weight-loss/lifestyle plans.
One day I happened across a link to Tom Venuto's first book. I read the book. I did what he suggested. My life has not been the same since. Over the next five months, I lost the final 30lbs - thanks to the author's expertise! And he IS an expert, make no mistake! My rate of fat loss nearly quadrupled!! For me, it was literally a miracle!
And no, the nutrition plan is not extreme. At all. In fact I was eating more total volume of food than I had been on the aforementioned plans. The only extremes I experienced came in the form of improved health, mood and energy levels! Oh yeah, and there's the I look good naked thing!
I still follow the maintenance version today. As I will always. This is seriously magic when you consider my history and what my previous lifestyle and mindset was like! On a diet. Off a diet. Weight up. Weight down. For years. I've paid to participate in commercial diet plans on at least on 10 different occasions (that I can remember!). Finally, I'm cured!
I've read many "diet" and self help books in my quest to lose 75lbs twice. I can say, without hesitation, "The Body Fat Solution" is a book like no other!
I have had to learn and apply the principles Tom teaches in "The Body Fat Solution". Some of these things I had to learn on my own over the course of my weight loss struggles. Some I learned from his first book.Read more ›
The down side of the BtF/FtM eBook is that it's very detailed. Implementation takes study, patience and a calculator. In diet terms, it's a full meal. The challenge for the present book was to present the same information in more digestible form.
Unfortunately, "The Body Fat Solution" is not completely successful. Although I appreciate Mr. Venuto's desire to teach "mental strategies before physical dynamics", I don't think a fitness book needs to start with 108 pages of motivation. Anyone who buys the book is suitably motivated. Ultimately, staying motivated will be the challenge, but in the beginning new readers just want to know what the program consists of and how to get started.
It also shouldn't take 253 pages to get to what you should do on the first day. So as a public service, I'm going rectify this shortcoming by giving you the Quick Start Guide the book should have opened with.
Here's what you do. First, buy an accurate scale, a measuring tape and a set of inexpensive fat calipers. Measure your weight, waist circumference and body fat, and write them down. Second, remove all the sugars, simple starches and grains from your diet. Increase your intake of lean protein, fruits and vegetables, and stop trying to avoid fat. Third, start exercising every day. If you can't think of anything else, start walking. Finally, take body measurements frequently and adjust your diet and exercise routines accordingly.Read more ›
