Twenty-five-year fitness industry veteran and bestselling author Tom Venuto has become one of the world's most respected fat-loss experts and natural bodybuilders. Venuto's famous system," Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle," is now available for the first time ever in a new print edition, completely revised and updated with tons of never-before-published material.
Venuto hasn't always been in fabulous shape. In college, they called him "Fat boy" after he added twenty pounds of belly flab from his beer, pizza, and cheese fries diet.Frustrated and angry with himself, Venuto began researching the unique methods of bodybuilders and fitness models--athletes he had admired for years because they have the lowest body fat and most-sculpted bodies in the world. He made himself a human guinea pig, putting these fat-burning and muscle-building methods to work and winning more than two dozen trophies in drug-free bodybuilding competitions. When crowds of people showed up at his gym door asking how he did it, he began sharing his methods with hundreds of one-on-one training clients. He went on to coach thousands of men and women online through his fitness websites. When Venuto self-published his fat-burning system as an ebook, ultimately he was able to help more than 300,000 people in 154 countries transform their bodies with the same "physique athlete" methods he had tested and proven on himself and his personal clients for over two decades.
Now available in print for the first time, "Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle" teaches you the four elements of body transformation in his L.E.A.N. formula, including a fat-burning food plan that can be customized for your body type, a 28-day training plan for sculpting lean muscle, and the motivation strategies it takes to stick with your plan. The program is not about getting as ripped as a fitness model or becoming a bodybuilder like Tom did (unless you want to), it's about using their secrets to achieve your own personal goals. Whether you want to burn 10 pounds or 100 pounds, whether you want to build muscle or look "toned," "Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle" is the bible for fat loss. It's the one must-have reference guide that will show you how to get permanent results the healthy, safe, and natural way, and you are sure to refer back to it for many years to come.

Originally published as an e-book and billed as the “Bible of Fat Loss,” this revised and updated print edition is geared towards helping readers achieve healthy weight loss by linking nutrition and exercise. It’s not a new concept and neither are the majority of Venuto’s suggestions. Eschewing fad diets, Venuto, a health and fitness writer and bodybuilder, encourages readers to get to know their body and adjust their approach to fitness accordingly. Helpful tips like calculating muscle loss or gain, establishing caloric needs, and spreadsheets for meal plans will assist readers in structuring their approach. But all too often the author’s advice does little more than state the obvious, noting the necessity of setting specific goals, creating a calorie deficit, drinking plenty of water, and combining cardio with strength training. Readers certainly won’t harm themselves, but those already committed to a healthy lifestyle will likely find this book to be more reminder than new Bible. That said, couch potatoes in need of structure and inspiration will find Venuto to be an informed and informative trainer. Agents: Yfat Reiss Gendell and Stephan Barbara, Foundry Literary + Media.
