Hello everyone, Carolyn here again.
Is your diet working? Are you losing weight? Yes you say? You reached your weight loss goal? Awesome! Got that flat belly you’re been wishing for? Oh, still battling the bulge ah? You’ve lost 20 pounds but you still can’t get those new jeans to fasten around your waist?
Well, how did you lose your weight? Was it through dieting alone? Did you use a healthy diet, one that you will stick with from now on or was it one of those lose-weight-quick-while-you-sit- on-the-couch diets? If you did exercise, did you combine cardio and strength training exercises? Bottom line – Did you lose fat, which accounts for that spare tire around your midsection?
News Flash: There is a method to losing weight – fat and keeping it off.
First of all there is a difference between weight loss and fat loss. I discussed this in a previous post so I won’t delve into that subject now; however, if you missed that discussion click here to review the post.
If you are overweight and have excess body fat, you must design your workout program to include exercises that will allow you to lose weight, burn fat AND build muscle. Your diet plan should focus on these three elements as well: weight loss, fat burning and muscle building.
One of the best-selling diet and fitness eBooks in the history of the Internet is Tom Venuto’s Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle book. Tom Venuto is a respected fat loss expert, natural bodybuilder, and personal trainer. His Burn the Fat program has been described by some as a "Fat Loss Bible." It is simply one of the most complete, detailed, and precise guides to fat loss you will ever see.
Why is it different from other weight loss publications on the market?
Simply put, it is not a "weight loss" program, but rather a "fat" loss program. Burn the Fat shows you exactly why it's fat you must lose, not "weight" (which includes muscle, water and other lean tissue) and then goes on to show you exactly how to do it. A lot of attention is paid to each and every element of successful, healthy, permanent fat loss.
With the information in this book, you will be able to easily determine your own ideal macronutrient ratio. [The 3 macronutrients are the main nutrients your body needs to survive. They are carbohydrates (your body's main source of energy), dietary fats (which have numerous health benefits) and protein (which helps build, create and maintain your body's cells).] You will be able to analyze your body type, determine the amount of "maintenance" calories your body requires daily, and assess whether you are carb tolerant or carb intolerant.
A personalized approach such as this is needed - because each of us is unique - no two people are exactly alike in terms of body physiology and personal goals. Therefore, anyone who needs to lose weight – burn fat, will benefit from Tom’s program.
If there is any drawback to the Burn the Fat eBook, it's that it contains so much information, that some readers may find it a bit overwhelming. Those who are looking for a quick start type of fat loss program might be a bit intimated initially. The good part however, is that even these types of readers can feel confident and assured that it will be worth the effort - because this will literally be the last book they will ever have to buy on the subject.
Best of Luck on Your Weight – Fat Loss Journey!
P. S.: The most important tip to remember is that diet and exercise go hand in hand. No natural fat loss is possible by dieting or exercising only. Natural and healthy fat loss is only going to be achieved by changing unhealthy habits and by starting a new life style.
