this book is a game-changer for me.

In early January 2016 I went to see an MD/nutritionist based out of my general physician's office (which has been absorbed into a huge corporate health care entity), for the purpose of getting my act together and losing about 30 lbs. I came away shocked by how lame it was - $200 later all I had to show for it was a couple of non-customized meal plans (starvation-level and calorie deficit) that I could have downloaded from the Internet, no guidance, no context, no firm goals or timeline, and a prescription for an appetite suppressant. Oh, and the doctor did manage to steer me past the part of the office where they conveniently sell diet supplements and powdered drinks. So, nothing but a $$$$ marketing exercise for them and a waste of time for me. I went home and started to do some research and, long story short, picked up BTF FTM on audible and started listening. BAM! Less than five minutes into the audiobook I knew I had made the right selection. Right off, Tom Venuto (who narrates) addresses the four pillars of weight control- mental, nutrition, cardio, strength training, and provides the roadmap to get there. He is direct, brutally honest, detailed, and powerfully motivating. I feel I'm back on track after my discouraging visit to the so-called nutritionist. THANK YOU TOM!

Excellent! No BS

The audio version of the book is great. I would recommend still buying the paper back book to be able to go back for quick reference.

I've been training for 8 months and came across this book. Tom does an excellent job at explaining and providing solid road map for losing body fat naturally. I love chapters 16-19. Also chapter 6 is a must read as well. Excellent book if you are serious about getting into shape.

What it says on the cover

Would you listen to Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle again? Why?

This is a regular listen, so much info, well presented and applicable.

What did you like best about this story?

The Author's own story told by him. Though it's a technical book rather than a story he is engaging and measured.

Which character – as performed by Tom Venuto – was your favourite?

Not applicable as this is a technical book but Tom is a good reader.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

How to stop being fat.

Any additional comments?

Bin the diets and fads this is real world information we all know works - eat less and exercise more - to get fit. The difference is Tom goes into the why's and how's, what works and what doesn't and how to make it work for us mere mortals who have a life outside the gym.

What a Genius this man is!!!!

What made the experience of listening to Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle the most enjoyable?

I am a qualified fitness instructor and currently studying personal training and clinical nutrition. This is the best audio book I have listened to and teaches you the correct methods of helping you get to the best shape in your life. The four principles of mental, cardio, resistance and nutrition training are very well explained in in good depth. I am now a follower of Tom venuto and hope to someday have the level of knowledge he has in order to help others get the best from a fit and healthy lifestyle.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The narrator Is great. Tom's first book used a different narrator which was a shame as tom's voice is much kinder to the ears and in a pleasant manner. Well done!!

What about Tom Venuto’s performance did you like?

Great performance.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Tom tells his story of how he archieved his goals from being a fattish guy to a many time winner of bodybuilding competitions. Great storyline.

Any additional comments?

Very much recommended.
