Best Selling Fat Loss and Body Transformation E-book in Internet History, Now Available in a Brand-New, Fully-Updated and Revised Hardcover Edition 

burnthefatIn BURN THE FAT, FEED THE MUSCLE, you will discover the fat loss and body transformation system that’s been used for decades by fitness models and bodybuilders – the leanest athletes with the best bodies in the world.

The Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle program  has now been tested for over 10 years and proven in the real world by thousands of Tom Venuto’s clients and readers to help anyone achieve their dream body and maintain it for life.

It’s not about becoming a bodybuilder or getting as ripped as a fitness model, unless you want to. It’s about using their secrets to reach your own personal goals, whether that’s losing 10 pounds or 100 pounds; whether you want to build muscle or just look “toned.”

First Time Ever in Print!

An international best seller as a self-published e-book, it is now available in a brand new edition that has been completely revised and updated with 25% never-before published material.

Inside you’ll discover Venuto’s new L.E.A.N. system, walking you through all four elements of his fat loss formula including the secrets of motivation, the best fat burning foods, and the workouts that burn fat the fastest.

New Workouts For Beginners and Experienced Lifters

Also included is “The New Body 28” (TNB-28) workout, for sculpting solid lean muscle. Follow this simple plan and you’ll have a stronger, healthier, fitter and leaner body within the first 28 days, and it gets better every week after that as your new fitness habits become part of your lifestyle.

A primer workout is included for beginners and quick start tips allow you to jump right in and begin to lose fat fast.  But this is not a quick fix. Pills, drinks or supplements are not required and there’s no crazy starvation – in fact, on this plan, you can actually eat more and burn more.

More Flexible Than Ever

You can customize the program and even choose the amount of carbs you want, based on your goals and your body type.

Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle is not a restrictive diet, it’s a safe, healthy and natural lifestyle approach for permanent results, which is why hundreds of thousands of readers in 154 countries call this book their “bible of fat loss.”

The new print editions include a hardcover, available in the United States and Canada, and a paperback, available in the United Kingdom and other selected countries in English

    Tom is quite simply THE authority on body recomposition. No gimmicks, no sales pitches, just the cold hard facts. He’s done a lifetime of research and simplified it for practical use in his books. Most importantly he lives it.

  • ShrinkingChubbyMommy

    Bought the e-book and it is the best money I have spent EVER! Tom’s book is so full of information it has taken me days to read through (making notes and calculating along the way)! His no nonsense approach to getting lean is appreciated. I am ready to SHRINK my way to a lighter life because NOW I know how to do it!! My understanding of FOOD has increased dramatically and his advice is powerful and empowering! I realize this is all up to me! Thanks Tom!

    Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle is the last diet book you will ever need to buy. It is SO much more than a diet book. This e-book changed my life! My weight was up and down for years before I read this book. I rode the weight roller-coaster from my mid-teens to my mid-twenties. I had lost on Atkin’s and gained it back. I had lost on Weight Watchers and gained it back. I have hypothyroidism, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and come from a family with obesity issues. I had given up hope that I would ever be able to stay thin and healthy long-term in the face of my metabolic challenges. I was to the point where I was barely eating anything, yet I was still getting fatter and fatter. Not only did Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle teach me why this was ocurring, but it also taught me how to put a stop to it. I didn’t have to starve anymore! I lost my stubborn weight and it stayed off! That was in 2006. I have since had a baby. The knowledge of foods and calories I gained from Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle helped me control my weight within healthy parameters while pregnant. I gained the recommended 30 lbs, despite fact that many women with polycystic ovarian sydrome have issues with their weight rising out of control during pregnancy. I spent the last 10 weeks of my pregnancy on strict bedrest for pre-eclampsia and my doctors marveled at how I still managed to keep my weight under control! I am also very happy to say that I was back to my pre-pregancy weight within 11 months of having my child. There is no magic formula. You do have to do the work and the weight will not come off overnight, but if you follow Tom’s advice it WILL come off. Most importantly, it will STAY off! I have recommended this book to countless friends and relatives, and even those who have employeed only some of Tom’s principles are much better for it. If you are like I was and have lost hope, then buy this e-book! It is the answer you have been waiting for!

    I have read ALOT of fitness and nutrition info. over the years (I can’t help myself, my major was English) 🙂 and Tom’s BFFM is by far the most comprehensive approach to fat loss that I’ve read.
    It seems almost overwhelming at first, just from the sheer size of it – but it is well-organized and easy to navigate. It covers the topic from every angle (science, practice, mental, etc.) and, although it has been several years since I first read it, I am currently using the method now with my wife as we have both re-committed ourselves to a workout program. I am no longer looking to ‘lose weight;’ instead, I am working toward having the hard, lean body I had twenty years ago – and it’s working! Thanks, Tom

  • Om

    I have ebnjoyed your publication over the years and am pleased with your new offereings and web-site. I hope you great success in the years to come and my thanks on behalf of all who have benefited from you and your programs. I never pass up your e-mails or delete them without reading. Thanks again,

  • Robb Ryniak

    I’ve used the principles in BFFM (Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle) to drop from 410 lbs to 169 lbs, almost all of it fat loss – and am now slowing building my body (now up to 183) with nice solid muscle… and without gaining any fat!! I honestly feel stronger and more energized than when I was 20 years old – it’s an amazing feeling!! Don’t get me wrong, it took a LONG time to get here (about 2 years or so), but it is a journey well worth it, and I wouldn’t trade Tom’s advice in BFFM for all the tea in China. (Or all the fries at McD’s lol) The information in BFFM is the real deal – honest and detailed nutrition and exercise advice to help you essentially create your OWN plan that is tailored for YOU that will WORK FOR YOU instead of forcing you to comply with something that you (A) will find it too hard to stick with long term, and (b) may not even work well for your body type. Trust someone that’s lost 241 lbs… and I am NOT the only one. I’ve met a number of people through the “Burn the Fat Inner Circle” forums who have made similar transformations. Get it. Read it. You won’t be disappointed. I promise 😀

  • Darren & Angela

    We started this programme to shift some mid life bagage! I’m an active 42 year old who has shifted 20lbs of fat in 12 weeks! My wife who suffers from herniated disks is quite sedentry but she has shifted 14 lbs!! Takes a bit of organising but once you get the idea, you get it!

  • jamesm

    Far and away the best health and fitness manual a person can buy. From macro percentages to the psychology of goal setting, it’s all there. Thank You Tom.

  • John

    I bought BFFM 18 months ago, and after about 3 weeks I knew I was onto something good. I am in the best shape of my life at age 42. Wish I would have found it sooner. I am a physician, and Tom knows more about nutrition and exercise than all the docs I know combined. Thanks Tom!

  • Brian "Gringo" Nordberg

    Before BFFM I weighed 296 lbs and had over 45% body fat
    After BFFM I achieved a low weight of 174 lbs sub 5% body fat!

    If you ever join the BFFM Inner Circle, look for Gringo. I’ve got plenty of photos to share.

    Just a little over 3 yrs ago, I was obese. I worked a sedentary desk job, ate high fat junk food all the time, and never moved any further or faster than I absolutely had to. As a new father, I loved playing with my kids. But just messing around on the floor in the living room left me breathless and clammy. I had a moment of clarity, if I didn’t make a change, I might not be around to see my boys grow into men!

    That was the motivation, but “Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle” was the solution. I’d tried and failed, or succeeded and then failed, at many “diets.” I knew I needed a LIFESTYLE change, not another diet. BFFM provided me with that successful lifestyle outline.

    BFFM is a comprehensive look at fat loss and the methods which may be used to achieve it. I’d never stopped to think what a crucial role the mind plays. After all, many diets may work, but they only work so long as you stick with the program. Thanks to BFFM, I learned what it takes to stay motivated and to stay on target. Thank you.

    I always knew deep down inside, that exercise was probably important to getting in shape. Yet, I’d always found ways to put off exercise until later. Of course, later never came until BFFM showed exactly how strength training and cardio/aerobic training contribute to burning the fat and keeping it off.

    And, most importantly, BFFM does a spectacular job of spelling out the nutrition required to consistently burn fat, week after week, month after month, until you reach your goal. I actually found BFFM while I was stuck on a fat loss plateau. Thanks to BFFM, I smashed through that plateau and continued burning off the fat until I met my original goal weight. Then, I kept going a bit further and reached a level of leanness I’d never dreamed possible for myself.

    BFFM really has become my ongoing lifestyle. I eat well, train hard, and enjoy my new health and vitality. So thank you. Thank you for making my life better. Thank you for telling it like it is – simple but not easy. And thank you for sharing what you know, with those who need to know.

    P.S. The fat loss occurred over 14 months. Since then, I’ve used information from Tom to add 20 lbs of real muscle!

    For the record: Buy BFFM. It will change your life!

  • Guy

    I like the scientific, no-nonsense approach of sensible diet and hard gym sessions. I didn’t really calorie count or diet stringently, but went for the healthy eating principles and lots of exercise. Result: over 7 months I lost 25 kg and 4 trouser sizes – more importantly my body fat halved from mid-20% to about 12% – not bad at age 46. Thanks Tom.

  • Lawrence Schemelia

    Tom Venuto’s “Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle” could quite conceivably be the single BEST book ever written regarding the optimal eating program for maximum muscle and minimum body fat. I purchased the book several years ago, and I can state unequivocally that the information and advice contained therein have proven to be immensely beneficial to me. I am now a newly certified (through The American College of Sports Medicine- ACSM) personal trainer and fitness instructor, and I LOVE what I do. The money is rather scant right now as I’m new to the industry, but thanks largely to Tom Venuto’s book, I feel confident in my own ability to offer people sound and effective advice.

  • AlexHK

    After years of misery and failed attempts of getting back into shape, I finally found BFFM on the Internet. With the help of Tom’s book I was able to achieve a great body with less than 10% body fat and become fit and healthy again. I am now 36 but I am in better shape than ever before, and healthier too. If you are serious about making a change, get on board with Tom now and stop wasting your time looking for shortcuts and magic bullets.

  • Azmi P Imad

    Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle (BFFM) and the Body Fat Solution are two great books that make sense and get results. I use them my self and help my students with them. Please keep up the good work.

  • Nancy

    Once you hit 40 weight loss becomes so difficult, so you eat less, cut this and that add hours in the gym and more hours and more hours till eventually you hit a wall and then nothing budges any more. That’s where I found myself, eating mainly fruit and veggies, training five to six days a week and still seeing my weight go up! UGH!

    Then I found Tom’s book, literally devoured it and found the help I needed to correct my eating and boost my metabolism! It’s been four weeks, I’m down 2 kilos and 2% body fat! I am not giving up!! I’m counting calories, checking micronutrients…I will be successful…thank you Tom for laying out the truth so clearly and simply….I’ll keep you posted! thank you thank you

  • Ivangelico

    I’ve learned so much from Tom Venuto’s knowledge and experience that I truly believe I’m now on the right path to reaching all my health and fitness goals. I highly recommend it!

    • Alina Czechner

      If you are looking for quick fixes then by no means, BFFM program is not for you!
      But if you are not afraid of hard work that will bring you great results, results that you can maintain for life then that’s the best you can get!

      I’ve been following the BFFM program since May last year, and I’ve managed to go down from 28% to 18% of BF.
      It learnt me how to manage my eating disorders and showed my that there was not substitute for hard work!

      I can only highly recommend it!

  • i want to order the book burn the fat, but since i live in Mauritius island.. I’m not able to..please reply to me via email to thnks Tom 🙂

  • KaliKid

    Just wanted to know if bffm included meal plans specific for your body and metabolic type. I understand theres a food that burns fat book thats included in the order, but just wondering if thats taylored to ones body and metabolic type or if it just includes list of fat burning food.

    • Tom Venuto

      Kalikid: BFFM is not a book of recipes or days /weeks of meal plans. What it does is gives you the meal plan TEMPLATES and a sample meal plan for each template so that you can create your own meal plans. The trouble with generic meal plans, days and weeks worth of them, is I dont know what you like to eat. I dont know if you have food allergies or intolerances. I dont know if you are a picky eater. I dont know if you are a vegetarian or prefer not to eat meat. So I can create sample meal plans and may just do that in the future, but for the bffm book itself i give you the meal plan templates as a way of “teaching you how to fish,” rather than “giving you the fish” as the old proverb goes… the book DOES include food lists, and you can plug them into the template. be sure to take us up on the free trial to our inner circle support community because there is more meal planning advice there, you can ask me questions on the forums and we are almost ready to release our meal planner software which will make it really easy to create and save your own meals, recipes and meal plans.

        I bought BFFM about 3 months ago. I was doing a strenght program before this. I loved the book and it has gret information. But I have been following a diet of lean meats, whole grains and veggies with a bit of fruit for 2 months and have lost only about 2 pounds. Cheat meal saturday. I use a calorie tracker app(fitpal) to keep myself at 2200 calories a day. Im 5’10” 220lbs, 43 yrs old and have been lifting recreatinally for 10 years on and off but 1.5 yrs consistently. My best bench was 280lbs and I squat 330 at 5×5. I only tell you that to give you an idea where I am for lifting. I can’t seem to lose weight but am not gaining either. Im worried about upping my cals cause I dont want to gain fat and Im worried about lowering them in fear of stalling. I am needing some help I guess. My goal is to lose fat and then gain muscle as I would like to get some what bigger, but wit muscle not fat of course.

    Several years ago I purchased Burn the fat, Feed the Muscle Ebook and kept it on my harddrive at work, as this is the only computer and email I have access to. They replaced my computer recently, including harddrive and I’ve lost all my personal files including my Ebook. Will I have to repurchase the Ebook the all the extras that came with it? Please let me know.

    thank you

  • Rob Heaney

    BFFM works. I lost 35 pounds in 6 months, going from 24% BF to single digits. My BP is normal for the first time in 30 years. I’ve maintained this for almost two years now. I’m 53 years old, and am running my second 13.2 in three weeks. Combine this material with a tracking app like Calorie Count or Fitday, and it really isn’t difficult to get startling results. And don’t skip the goal setting stuff! :^)

  • Jane

    I am new to strength training. Does the book contain pictures and descriptions of the individual exercises that make up the workout? Thanks

    • Tom Venuto

      Hi Jane. Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle is not an exercise instruction book per se. It is a total lifestyle and body transformation program with all text. however, one part of the program is strength training. The program is clearly outlined in the book and there are photos with more detailed exercise descriptions on the Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle dot com website.
