Is Tom Venuto's Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle a SCAM?

I have been an "exerciser" for most of my adult life. I enjoy working out and staying in shape. Even as a young boy I idolized incredible athletes like Bruce Jenner and Mr. Universe, the great Arnold Schwarzenegger (I date myself I know).

Recently (last summer) I decided instead of my usual 2 or 3 days a week maintaining I would get serious about not being fat around my middle any more. I was having a hard time keeping the gut off. As an "older" member of the armed forces reserves in my 40's, I also had a need to stay in shape for my job too!

I knew a lot about training, and I also knew there was a lot of misinformation out there. I hate being lied to or being "sold" dishonestly. I knew how to build muscle, and lose weight, I'd done both....but not simultaneously. I'd either get bigger muscles plus gain fat, or I'd lose weight and watch my muscles shrink.

Then a friend turned me on to a book that I believe now is the single most informative book on losing fat and gaining muscle for both women and men I have ever read. I cannot state this strongly enough; Tom Venuto has put together in one book what I believe to be the GOLD STANDARD in no-nonsense fitness books and his is reasonably priced, unlike some out there that can get you for $50 to $150!

ADDED SIDE NOTE; After just a few months on the program, I believed it in it so much that I contacted Venuto to find out how I could help him sell his book.
When I originally wrote this book review on my own personal blog I was not trying to sell the book for him, just share some of the best information I had seen in one place. I believe in it that much.

Since I had sent so many people to Venuto's book I thought I'd figure out a way to actually have him pay me for my efforts!...and to my surprise, he was glad to do it! Gotta love the internet!! .
Even though Mr. Venuto has the best selling Ebook on the Internet several years running, and leads an extremely busy life he still contacted me personally several times to make sure I was getting paid for my effort!

One of the main reasons I've been recommending Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle since I first read it is because it cuts through all the bulls%*&, all the lies and all the sales hype that permeates the world of fitness. Tom isn't selling some new method or supplement.

If you just want to go on a diet, this book is not for you. If you want to lose a few pounds, this book is not for you. If you are looking for some quick way to get fit, and lose fat that doesn't require any work on your part, this book is not for you. This book is for people who want to do just what the title says, increase lean muscle and burn fat and stay that way....naturally, without the aid of any supplements, but you will have to do the hard work yourself.

I have always believed that bodybuilders (the natural ones) are the world's foremost experts on burning fat. Just look at the picture on this page. Have you ever seen anyone so cut? Too often however, you can't trust most of the magazine models because these amazing athletes are "bought" by supplement companies. Their advise is skewed by the money they get for "endorsing" some product. Venuto endorses NO products and exposes those who do!

He makes no outrageous promises and he's refreshingly honest. There is no magic formula here, it's all about the hard work YOU do, and the way YOU eat. I've never seen so much good information on the subjects of fat burning and muscle building put into one place.

Once I saw what he had learned over his lifetime put in an instructional format, delivered in a common sense way I drank it up, I was sold, so I put it to work and saw a great response from my body in less than 2 months, and at only 4 months I had lost almost 9% body fat 14 pounds!! Even when my weight was not going down, my body fat was...I was gaining lean muscle and losing unhealthy fat..and I still am. Last year I got to the lowest weight I've been in 20 years, and in better athletic shape than I can remember. My Physical Fitness Assessment scores went up 2 levels for my bi-annual test!

If you want a quick fix way to lose a few pounds, don't buy this book. This is for serious people who are fed up with their current shape (round) and want to get into the best shape of their life, cut. I wish I had this information when I was younger before I spent hundreds of dollars on supplements that only added to my body fat. Don't make the same mistake I made.

When I bought Venuto's eBook (a PDF File) I thought it was a bit over priced for a PDF ...until I read it. I had only gotten in a couple of chapters before I knew I had made a good purchase. With all the extras he throws in to the deal, it also helps make it worth your money.

Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle is the #1 best selling diet and fitness ebook in the history of the Internet. Tom Venuto, a respected fat loss expert, natural bodybuilder, and personal trainer, has not just pumped out yet another "diet" into an already over-saturated market. Tom's Burn the Fat can be more accurately described as a "Fat Loss Bible." It is quite simply one of the most complete, detailed, and precise guides to fat loss you will ever see.

Burn The Fat not only thoroughly dispels the lies, myths and fallacies surrounding a very confusing subject, it is simply the most detailed book about fat loss ever written.Click here to read the offer
