How To Pick a Fat Loss Plan
By Brian Nordberg
How To Pick a Fat Loss Plan As members of the Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle Inner Circle, most of us have already come to the same conclusion: BFFM is a great fat loss plan! But think back to the time before you found BFFM. There are thousands of weight loss, and diet plans in existence.

Do Anti-Depressants And Other Prescription Drugs Cause Weight Gain or Obesity?
By Tom Venuto
Do Anti-Depressants And Other Prescription Drugs Cause Weight Gain or Obesity? Question: "Recently I've been helping my friend start a new diet following Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle (BFFM) principles - However, she lost her job and has been rather stressed, and recently went to see a counselor who prescribed her with anti-depressants. Is there any risk of it affecting her diet or causing her weight gain? She's actually very worried about it because she says she heard that these types of prescription medications can cause obesity."... Click here for the answer: . . . keep reading
Clean Diet vs Junk Food Diet In A Deficit: If You Can Lose Weight Either Way, Why Eat Clean?
By Tom Venuto
Clean Diet vs Junk Food Diet In A Deficit: If You Can Lose Weight Either Way, Why Eat Clean? You've heard the stories: One guy eats at McDonalds for 30 days and gets sick and fat... another guy does the same and loses 8 pounds, revealing 6-pack abs... A nutrition professor goes on a Twinkie diet and loses his gut... and a guy named Jared loses a ton of weight on fast food subs. So is "clean eating" really that important after all, or is it purely about calories in versus calories out? Click here for the answer and find out why many people - even the smartest, most well-intentioned natural food advocates - still don't get it... . . . keep reading
The Lipophilia Hypothesis of Weight Gain: Is Insulin, Not Calories, the Cause of Obesity?
By Tom Venuto
The Lipophilia Hypothesis of Weight Gain: Is Insulin, Not Calories, the Cause of Obesity? Diet wars have been waged for decades and while many weight loss fads have come and gone, certain debates continue to rage on. The big one: Low carb versus high carb. In the low carb world, diet gurus and their followers continue to argue that obesity is not caused by excess calories, but by carbs, which stimulate insulin. The "carbohydrate - insulin" hypothesis of obesity, alternately known as the lipophilia hypothesis, has gained enough traction lately that diet battles are breaking out once again and dieters are getting confused once again. So what is that makes you fat? Carbs and insulin - or is still about the calories after all? . . . keep reading

Why Frequent TV Watching Can Make You Fat
By Tom Venuto
Why Frequent TV Watching Can Make You Fat "Watch less TV" is advice you hear all the time from nagging friends, family and self-help gurus to avoid obesity and increase personal success. The two obvious reasons are increased food intake and decreased activity. But researchers have recently taken a closer look because they wanted to know why specifically, food intake goes up and activity goes down. As a result of research like this, health and fitness organizations have added an entirely new piece of advice to their health and fitness recommendations... . . . keep reading
Liquid Calories Vs. Solid Calories And Fat Loss
By Tom Venuto
Liquid Calories Vs. Solid Calories And Fat Loss You may have read articles that said "liquid calories can make you fat!" But protein shakes, meal replacements and sports drinks are liquid calories and they're consumed en masse by weight conscious people including athletes. Why then, do so many people say that whole food is better? And why do so many people say they get leaner when they cut back on liquid calories? Some people theorize that it's the thermic effect of whole food versus liquids that makes the biggest difference. Is it that simple or are there other factors involved? Read on and find out what research has revealed about liquid and solid calories and how it impacts your fat loss results . . . keep reading

By Brian Nordberg

Your search for answers has led you to the Burn the Fat ebook and the vast knowledgebase that is the Burn the Fat inner circle.

You'd like to believe that you can eat more, but you're terrified of increasing calories... you're worried that you've wrecked your metabolism so you just can't eat as much as others. You cry Help!

How to Lose Back Fat
By Tom Venuto
How to Lose Back Fat Back fat. You don't hear about it quite as often as lower abdominal fat, the "beer belly", the "love handles" or hip and thigh fat, yet it's still a frustrating problem area for many people. Men often have their largest skinfolds in the upper back (subscapular) area and the lower back is a major fat storage site. Women often complain about the back fat that literally spills over and around their bra straps. How do you get rid of it? Are there any special back exercises you can do? Read our latest column from the Inner Circle "fat loss" department to find out... . . . keep reading
How To Set Your Calorie Deficit If You're Overweight or Obese
By Tom Venuto
How To Set Your Calorie Deficit If You're Overweight or Obese A caloric deficit is a required condition for weight loss, but health and fitness experts have warned us for years that we shouldn't starve ourselves to lose weight... instead we are advised to reduce calories sensibly and to be conservative with the calorie deficit, reducing perhaps only 15% to 20% below our maintenance level... but does this advice apply to overweight and obese people? Is it time to re-examine the calorie deficit guidelines and customize them based on how much fat you have? . . . keep reading
Is it True There's No Such Thing as an Essential Carbohydrate?
By Tom Venuto
Is it True There's No Such Thing as an Essential Carbohydrate? "There's no such thing as an essential carbohydrate!" You may have heard this line from a low carb advocate at some point in your dieting career and you may not have believed it. Technically speaking, it's actually true. However, this does not mean that you should cut out all your carbs and eat nothing but protein and fat. Bad stuff can happen to you if you eliminate carbs... read on to find out why - even if you use low carb diets - you should never cut out all your carbs - there's a certain amount you need to gain the benefits and avoid the "bad stuff"... . . . 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
Eat All You Like AND Still Lose Weight!
By Brian Nordberg
Eat All You Like AND Still Lose Weight! Have you ever heard outrageous diet claims like, "eat all the foods you like and still lose weight" or "lose weight with zero hunger?" It seems that some marketers will say ANYTHING to sell a product, program, or system. Thankfully, BFFM followers have learned enough to cut through the malarkey and see the truth. But, what if I told you there comes a day when some of those promises start to ring true? . . . keep reading
Burn it Off and Keep it Off, Part 2: The 10 Keys to Lifelong Maintenance
by Tom Venuto
Burn it Off and Keep it Off, Part 2: The 10 Keys to Lifelong Maintenance Today, it's the media hyped stories of rapid weight loss that get all the attention. It's easy to look at these "success stories" and choose them as your role models. But it's usually not the person who lost the most weight the fastest that you want to emulate. Rapid weight loss could come from water or muscle and prompts the question of how long that weight loss has been and will be maintained. When you're looking for people and methods to model, you should pay attention to maintainers not losers... . . . keep reading

"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!"
