Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle Review

One thing I get asked about seeing as how I run a health site and all is what programs and products I recommend for weight loss and overall fitness.
That’s an excellent question.

I read a lot of books, ebooks, and even articles on the Internet on the topic.

One thing I’ve learned is that there’s a lot of hype, and not a lot of substance.
You ever see those previews for movies, and the movie looks really good from the previews, and then when you get to the theater, the previews were the only good parts of the movie, or maybe the previews were even better than the movie.

Well, that’s how I feel about a lot of the products I see and try out – good previews, bad product.

Which brings me to my review of Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle – one of the more popular weight loss / fitness products on the net right now.
I remember reading the salesletter thinking it sounded really good, which made me think that all the good stuff was in the salesletter of the product.

So I sat down and gave it a read. It was somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 pages before reading the bonuses, so even if it sucked, he couldn’t be accused of not delivering any bulk in his product.

When I first started reading the program, chapter one was a bit of a surprise to me.

It covered, *gasp*, goal setting. Imagine that, setting goals actually helps you lose weight, and not some magic little pills you pay $150 for…
Most other books simply talk about why all other diets don’t work and why theirs is different.
Well, Burn the Fat turned out to be different too. It’s not a diet book.

Instead, I think it’d be more accurate to call it a nutrition and fitness book. Since the book doesn’t promote crash diets, and focuses more on fat loss than just weight loss (there’s a big difference).

One section that I really learned a lot from was the chapter on how to increase your metabolism. I’ll admit that in the past I’ve tried some of those gimmicky diets and in the process lost some weight, but slowed down my metabolism in the process – making it much easier to gain weight and much harder to lose anymore weight.

So when I learned how I could increase my metabolism, eat more, and still lose weight, I was really excited. And guess what, it actually works – and there’s no crazy supplements or voodoo magic involved – the technique is very simple.

Another section that I found really interesting, and you probably will too, was the section on different body types. Basically, that all men are created equal thing doesn’t apply to genetics. Some people are more gifted than others. Some people will find gaining weight almost impossible while others will find it easy to gain. Other people can eat at McDonalds everyday while other people can live off salad and still not be able to see there abs.

That’s the problem with so many diet programs out there. They’re one size fits all. This program isn’t, which means that it will work for just about anyone who really gives it a try rather than most other programs where it works for a few people – and those are the people you see on TV – but for the general population it won’t work.
So I have to say that overall I was actually pretty pleased with Burn The Fat and would be happy to recommend it to my readers.
However, just so you know if it’s right for you, I’ve made a quick little checklist.

Burn The Fat Is Right For You If:

  • FatYou Want To Lose Weight.
  • You Want To Get In Better Shape.
  • You Want To See Some Muscle Definition In Your Body.
  • You Want To Achieve Permanent And Lasting Results.
  • Even If You’ve Tried Other Diet Programs And They Didn’t Work – Like I said, this program is more about nutrition and fitness than weight loss – it’s just that the fat loss is an excellent side effect of being in shape.

Burn The Fat Isn’t Right For You If:

  • You Want To Lose 30 Pounds In 30 Days.
  • You Want A Magic Pill.
  • You’re Idea Of Exercise Is Walking Out To The Mailbox To Get The Mail.

Now, I’ll be honest, this product isn’t perfect. You’ll find that it recommends you use artificial sweeteners in some places, and if you know me, you know how totally against artificial sweeteners I am. Also, I’ve found that while the sections on nutrition are great, and that it helps you learn how to make good food choices, the actual recipe section is a little light – there’s a few to get you started, but after that, you’ll have to apply what you know. If I were doing a revision, I’d add more recipes.

However, overall, it’s a product that I’d recommend to anyone looking to lose fat.
