What Are the Pros of Burn Fat, Feed Muscle?
a) This program is highly personalized to cater for your specific needs
Just as varied as the faces in the world so are the metabolic types in the population. Not every person will react in a similar way to diet. Your metabolic type will decide how your body will handle different kinds of diet. There is a misconception that low carbs are the best for weight loss. This is wrong. As a matter of fact low carb diets can actually cause weight gain in some metabolic types.
Tom’s ‘Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle’ understands this and so provides a diet plan that is tailored to your metabolic type. This system starts by teaching you how to determine which metabolic type you belong to. Once you determine this then, using the program, you can design a fitness and diet plan based on your metabolic type.
The program also gives you the allowance to adjust your caloric intake as you require. You have to understand that what works best for another person may not work in a similar way for you. This personalized nature makes this Fat Burning eBook guide different from many other weight loss programs.

It is always difficult to get nitty-gritty information as regards the micronutrients and macronutrients. Venuto takes his time to explain in detail what these substances are and how they are important to your life.

Most people do not know what is considered normal weight, obesity or overweight. Tom has clear guide to help you know your status and assess you progress. You will learn what body mass index is and how you can use to evaluate whether or not you are losing wait while you continue with the program.

Apart from the main guide, you can get supplemental resources from author interviews and by subscribing to their newsletters. ‘Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle’ official website contains additional resources and also provides a platform where you can read customer reviews and ask questions.
What are the cons of ‘Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle’ program?
a) The program needs a lot determination and commitment
Given the scope of the program and the processes involved, it may be very difficult to follow especially if you are poor at following procedures. The sheer amount of information in the main guide can discourage poor readers. With 341 pages of relevant information, this may be quite challenging to a casual dieter.
b) Some parts of the information may not be relevant
Tom Venuto is a sportsman involved in bodybuilding through weightlifting. He therefore writes in this context. He overemphasizes fat loss percentage which may not be relevant for some people who do not care about bodybuilding. The kind of expresses some competitiveness in bodybuilding which is informative but at times unnecessary.
c) Pays little attention to exercise
Despite the importance of exercise in weight loss, Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle gives it a backseat. 75% of the entire book is dedicated to nutritional facts with the remainder talking about cardio and strength exercises. He only mentions the exercises without expounding on them.
In Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle, it is obvious that Tom’s determined to offer a better way to lose weight. It is now for you to decide whether not to go for the program. From my perspective, it is worth trying.
