Is it Mandatory to Measure and Track Your Body Fat Percentage?
By Tom Venuto
Is it Mandatory to Measure and Track Your Body Fat Percentage? Is it absolutely necessary to measure your body fat to make progress in your fat loss and muscle-building endeavors, or to succeed on the Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle program? Some experts today are starting to suggest that we throw away our body fat calipers, just as others in the past have told us we should "throw away our scales." Should we listen, or would that be making a huge mistake? . . . keep reading

Does the Biosignature Modulation Method of Body Fat Testing Work?
By Tom Venuto
Does the Biosignature Modulation Method of Body Fat Testing Work? Body fat testing can be super cheap or super expensive. You can test your own body fat at home with a set of skinfold calipers (for the "pinch test") that cost less than $20. You can also go to a hospital or exercise physiology lab and get a DEXA scan that usually costs between $100 to $250. A Burn the Fat reader recently noticed a new kind of body fat test that cost a whopping $400 - $500 and asked if it worked and if these more expensive tests were more accurate. . . . keep reading
Is Low Body Fat Dangerous For Women?
By Tom Venuto
Is Low Body Fat Dangerous For Women? Female athletes such as gymnasts and runners often reach body fat levels as low as 14% or less and health experts question whether this level of leanness is healthy... but figure and physique athletes get even leaner - often 10% or even cracking into the single digit body fat range! Could being in professional-level contest shape be inherently unhealthy or pose major health risks, if so, can these risks be managed, or is extremely low body fat much ado about nothing, especially since no one maintains contest shape for long. Read on to learn more and join the discussion... . . . keep reading

How Do You Know When You've Hit A Plateau?
By Tom Venuto
How Do You Know When You've Hit A Plateau? How do you know when you've hit a fat loss plateau? It would seem the answer is obvious: When your weight and body fat don't go down right? On the surface that is true, but what about those wacky changes in hydration that throw your body weight and lean body mass numbers out of kilter? What about monthly cycles? How about glycogen levels? Or how about flat out body composition test error? With all these variables how do you REALLY know when you've hit the wall and what should you do about it? . . . keep reading

What is the Necessary Body Fat Percentage to See Your Abs?
By Tom Venuto
What is the Necessary Body Fat Percentage to See Your Abs? QUESTION: I can't figure out what body fat % I should be aiming at to achieve that ripped abs look. I'm female, 35years old. I started at 19% body fat and the lowest I've gotten so far was 11.8% body fat with a caliper test. I've been thinking about doing a figure competition, but even at that body fat percentage, which I know is very low, I still had some "patches" of fat. How do I know what body fat percentage I should target so that all the fat is gone? . . . keep reading

His "Inner Circle" is a premier quality resource - well worth the money, and a benefit to anyone, anywhere, of any age who is trying to lose weight. I highly recommend it!"

Paul Crane, UltimateFatBurner.com

I'm so very grateful to Tom Venuto and the whole family here in the Burn the Fat Inner Circle. This really has changed my life."

"I just listened to the first "Burn the Fat Show" and this one 20-minute message is at the top of my list. I have motivational CD's and books coming out the wazoo and you've set a standard in your show that I look forward to listening to again and again. Keep up the GREAT work!"."

Steve Wiebusch

The support here is incredible for my morale. I'm excited about the inches I've lost. In the past when I'd get halfway there, I'd lose motivation and quit. I've never made it this far and still felt motivated to keep going. "

Rikki Fougere


"I have many people everyday ask me what my secret is and how I lost 137 pounds. I tell them the same thing - I use Tom Venuto's Burn The Fat - Feed The Muscle program and it all boils down to "How bad do you want it?"
Mike Ogorek



"I've been following the Burn The Fat recommendations and I now fit into a pair of jeans that I havent worn in a long time. The Salvation Army must love me these days, as I've liberated 12 clothes hangers and two shelves of oversized clothes since New Years!"
