Want to lose fat? If so I strongly recommend buying Tom Venuto’s book ” Burn The Fat 7-Day Body Transformation”! This very well written, gimmick-free book will give you the motivation and the knowledge to permanently take that excess body fat off. So I have to tell you, I was absolutely dreading doing a book review on one of these “lose fat” books because the genre has such a horrible reputation for sleazy tactics, inflated promises, and merely temporary results. I was so impressed with Tom Venuto’s “ Burn The Fat 7-Day Body Transformation” that I actually feel embarrassed. I am embarrassed that his book is so much better than any of the top fitness websites I swear by and have been to, and that I almost threw this book to the side. The difference is in Tom Venuto’s book he covers things in a much more complete, organized, and detailed way. The other important difference is that Tom Venuto’s has some really interesting and exciting techniques for fat loss with the effectiveness of the low-carb diets without the bad side effects. If I had 6 months full time to work on a weight loss book, and I was good at writing (which I’m not), my book would have been almost a clone of Tom Venuto’s book “ Burn The Fat 7-Day Body Transformation”. If you want to lose body fat efficiently and without becoming confused by all the information out there I strongly recommend you buy this book!
The title of the book says “Burn The Fat 7-Day Body Transformation” but don’t let this fool you into thinking this is a quick fix. The title means that Tom Venuto gets you off to a fast start by discussing nutrition and exercise in a manner that you can quickly apply and thus get you dieting and exercising efficiently right away! The transformation will begin right away and it will stay once you have all the valuable knowledge that is in this book.
OK now lets talk about what’s in the book, its 60% nutrition and 20% exercise. In losing fat, nutrition is #1 which is why he spends so much time on this important topic. It doesn’t matter how much you exercise, if your nutrition sucks you will still get fatter. My first hint that I was going to like this book was in the preface where Tom Venuto stated his purpose:
“… to help you lose fat permanently without drugs, supplements or gimmicks and to educate you in the process of losing fat.”
Bravo! So many books are about “diets”, this one is not. Permanently, is a keyword here! When you go off diets, the weight comes back, this book is not about a “diet”, its about a lifestyle change. The second thing I applauded was the recognition of the important role of education. If you just tell people to eat vegetables to lose weight, they will forget. Tell them why its important and they will remember. Weight loss is all about education in my opinion. I also was excited to see that he was not going to plug supplements in this program! IMHO, supplements are to be avoided until the FDA regulates them.
Tom Venuto’s first chapter is about the critically important subject of goals – bravo! Tom Venuto mentions the importance of setting specific, measurable, realistic goals which is very important and other books and websites don’t do nearly as good a job of putting it all together like Tom Venuto’s book “ Burn The Fat 7-Day Body Transformation”. I agree with Tom Venuto’s completely when he says that this is the most important chapter in the book because if you don’t know what your goal is, you will never achieve it. Double-bravo.
As an important introduction to nutrition, he covers why conventional diets fail. I knew everything in this chapter but again was embarrassed that only a fraction of this is on my website. He goes into detail about the starvation response and it’s perils and the perils of very low calorie diets. He also goes into detail about the optimal rate of weight loss. Throw away those stupid height/weight charts and useless BMI calculations – bravo again, I couldn’t agree more! What’s truly important is body fat percentage and he explains in detail why. He also explains in detail why a cheap body fat caliper is the best and most accurate way to go. Measuring body fat is critical because you have to know if your fat-loss approach is working or not so you can make adjustments. I also love his excellent section on how to break a fat loss plateau, I wish I had a dollar for every time I have been asked that question! All thru the book, I kept finding myself nodding my head saying “Yep, Yep!” and this section on busting thru weight loss plateaus is no exception.
To lose body fat you do the same things regardless of body type, what does vary is the quantities – of cardio, of calories, etc. Tom Venuto does a great job of describing the feedback mechanism used to hone in on the proper amount of calories, cardio, etc in chapter 3.
Many fitness and diet gurus will preach to eat 6 small well balanced meals a day to optimize muscle gain. What I did not really realize till reading Tom Venuto’s book “ Burn The Fat 7-Day Body Transformation” was that frequent, small meals are just as important for fat loss! He lays out the case for frequent, small meals so well that you will never skip breakfast again. He has a brilliant way you can immediately break yourself of the skipping-meal habit, wish I had thought of it. Again I find myself embarrassed at the way other fitness books and websites cover this same information, the same information is there but its not clearly explained like it is in Tom Venuto’s book “Burn The Fat 7-Day Body Transformation”! Eating 6 meals a day is really tough for most people and he has excellent suggestions how you can achieve it.
I know a lot about bodybuilding and nutrition but his chapter on macro nutrient ratios taught me a thing or two. No matter how much I think I have learned about fitness, there is always so much more to learn. I always knew that for me it worked best to eat my protein and carbs together but in Tom Venuto’s book “ Burn The Fat 7-Day Body Transformation”, he explains the eight reasons why its important. I love his common sense approach to these ratios and I agree with him completely that you really need to experiment and see what ratios works best for you! I read a lot about good fats and their importance but it wasn’t till I read this book that started to question my personal macro nutrient ratios, currently I have 10% fat and after reading Tom Venuto’s book I’m convinced that I should try doubling it to 20%. He also slams the ridiculous high fat,/zero-carb fads, and explains why – bravo! I really like his simple 3-2-1 method for nutrient ratios (as a starting point)! After reading his book, I am personally re-evaluating the protein percentage I consume. I see definite advantages to bumping my protein intake from the 30% that I currently consume to 40 or 50% and he does a good job dispelling the myth about too much protein being harmful.
He spends a whole important chapter analyzing low carb diets, this is really important because so many of the fad diets out there are of this variety. In this chapter you learn their pros and cons and then learn how to get the weight loss benefits of the low-carb type diets without the drawbacks. The first technique “carb-tapering” is just brilliant and although I have always been a strong opponent of the low-carb craze, this technique makes a lot of sense to me and I’m going to use it this summer. Its a natural extension of what I already know works well for me. The next technique for avoiding the disadvantages of the low-carb diets while retaining the benefits is carb cycling. This might be one of the most revolutionary ideas in the book, honestly, this one I had never heard of but it seems to make sense and hundreds of his clients have gotten great results from it so I’m willing to personally give it a try.
The last 20% of the book covers exercise and its importance in losing body fat, both cardiovascular exercise and weight training. The book has a section on weight training routines and awesome nutritional concepts. Additionally, you will receive 4 other bonus ebooks with this that have a in depth meal planner, recipes and a fat testing system to accurately measure body fat.
