Reviewed by Kelly Jadon on Tom Venuto's new book The Body Fat Solution
Tom Venuto has a fearless reputation as a man who is a fat loss expert and a natural, steroid-free bodybuilder. Since 1990, he has trained hundreds of individuals, and graduated 600 plus people from his nationally known 12-week coaching program, which was the base for his highly successful ebook Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle.
The Body Fat Solution provides solutions for regular people who live with stress, a shortage of time, emotional eating habits, and who lack motivation. Venuto presents a simple five-part formula which works for millions of people and encompasses a total-life approach addressing physical, mental, emotional, and social weight loss needs. The book aims to help the reader find and address the cause of his or her obesity, then eliminate it.
Venuto offers explanations for why we believe weight loss and body fat myths:
You can eat as much as you want and still lose weight.
Overweight people have a slower metabolism than thin people.
Some people are diet-resistant and can't lose weight.
Your genetics are why you are overweight.
Dietary fat makes you gain body fat.
Carbs make you fat.
Dietary changes for health and weight loss are one and the same.
Insulin resistance causes obesity.
Venuto makes an extraordinary statement, "The real secret of success is to understand and intentionally use the power of your unconscious mind. It's the key to the body of your dreams and everything else you want in life." He backs this truth up with current research into the unconscious mind and shows the reader how to overcome negative mindsets which have prevented weight loss. As a reviewer, I believe that this is key. The best weight loss books now show the importance of the mind in relation to physical well being.
Venuto also covers nutrition, calories, the metabolic rate, various forms of exercise including the importance of weight training. Several pages of photos demonstrate proper form for exercises. An interesting chapter validates the necessity of having a positive social network of support.
In "Keeping Score and Staying on Track," Venuto provides means for tracking fat loss and charting progress. Near the end of weight loss, fat burners sometimes plateau and weight loss stops. Venuto know the answers to these problems and lets the reader know how to kick-start it again.
The Body Fat Solution also contains an appendix of recommended foods (many) which gives the calorie count, protein, carb, fat, and fiber break down per serving. Most of these foods are natural--recipes not included--but can be located on the author's website.
Through reading and implementing The Body Fat Solution, the reader will be able to:
Promote successful thinking
Stop any bingeing and self-sabotaging behavior
Eat delicious foods
Break the fat loss plateau and lose those last few pounds
Develop a positive social network
