About the Book:

By now we all know that we gain fat when we take in more calories than we burn. But we're not always rational creatures when it comes to food and exercise. Recognizing the emotional and psychological factors that sabotage fitness success, Tom Venuto hones in on the real causes of body fat and provides a sound plan for us to take back control of our bodies and end emotional eating for good.

Featuring easy nutrition equations that help you balance food intake, and efficient workouts that are just thirty minutes three times a week, The Body Fat Solution helps you:

* Reprogram your mind for autopilot success
* Lose all the fat and keep all the muscle
* Stop self-sabotage and banish bingeing
* Increase your metabolism
* Get mega-motivated
* Eat the foods you love
* Never diet again!

Tapping into his years of training expertise and personal experience, Venuto helps readers change their relationship with food, empowers them to take charge of their lives, and delivers a program that promises dramatic and permanent results.

My Review:

As a long time fan of Tom Venuto's philosophy on fitness, I was thrilled to be able to read and review his book The Body Fat Solution in which Venuto outlines the five principles for burning fat and building lean muscle. Venuto takes a realistic look at how one's eating and exercise work together to build a healthier and leaner body while building up muscle mass. Venuto's book is divided into 12 chapters beginning with defining obesity and debunking so many myths that exist about weight loss. Venuto goes on to explain why eating more and more frequently rather than the common trendy "diets" of eating fewer calories, helps not only shed unwanted body fat, but in the long run will help build up one's muscle mass. Venuto tackles the tough issues such as over-eating, re-programming the way one views diets and weight loss, body image and reprogramming one's mind to think positively about food. Venuto proceeds with well laid out sections describing as well as depicting exercises and how to put them together to create exercise routines. No stone is left unturned as Venuto even discusses healthy relationships, social networking, and the need to be accountable as well as the need for support. The final section puts everything neatly together for the reader, making certain the reader is armed with the tools necessary to succeed. The Body Fat Solution concludes with Appendices; online support, calorie calculations, recommend foods, and sample menus to get one started to the road to fitness. The Body Fat Solution is an excellent book for anyone tired of fad diets, actually dieting in general, and is looking for sound advice on how to become healthier, leaner, and have a healthy lifestyle.

I would live to thank FSB Media for supplying me with a copy of this book. My review was in no part influenced by my receiving a complimentary review copy.
