  1. What is the Necessary Body Fat Percentage to See Your Abs?
    By Tom Venuto
    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

    By Tom Venuto
    You've heard that expression "abs are made in the kitchen, not in the gym" but is that entirely true? What's the real secret to exposing your abs - is it dieting harder and getting your body fat percentage even lower, or is it doing more ab exercises and training your abs even harder so the ab muscles "pop" more? And what about the way your abs look when they do show through? Is there anything you can do to get the full 6-pack or even the 8-pack to show more? Read on and find out... . . . keep reading

  4. The Biggest Loser Pros And Cons: An In-Depth Review of Television's Most Popular Reality Show
    Tom Venuto
    The Biggest Loser -- a reality show which is essentially a race to see who can lose weight the fastest - is one of the most popular reality shows in Television history. I've known about The Biggest Loser since it debuted in 2005 because people ask me all the time what I think of the program and of course, "How do they lose so much weight?" Until now, I've only seen video clips, browsed forum threads and read news about the show. To give informed answers to questions in the future, I finally wanted to see first-hand what this was really all about. So I sat through the entire two-hour 8th season premiere on September 15th. Here's my take on the show... . . . keep reading

  6. Bikini, Fitness Model, Fitness, Figure, Bodybuilding and Natural Bodybuilding - What is the Difference Between All The Contest Divisions?
    By Tom Venuto
    Whether you're a fan or a competitor in the physique sports (or simply a curious spectator), you may have wondered what is the difference between all the different divisions: bodybuilding, physique, fitness, fitness model, figure and bikini. It gets confusing to know what the judges want when there are so many categories and even sub-categories. In some divisions, you're rewarded for carrying more muscle size and being more ripped, while in others you're actually penalized for the same thing! And a big question is, what's the REAL difference between bodybuilding and natural bodybuilding divisions? . . . keep reading

  8. The New Rules of Cutting Calories: What is the "Real" Ideal Calorie Deficit?
    By Tom Venuto
    How far should you cut your calories to lose fat safely at the maximum rate? How large of a deficit is necessary? What is the lowest safe level of caloric intake? Why do some people lose a lot of weight on very low calorie diets, apparently without problems? Recent research has shed some new light on the subject, so it's worth revisiting "the optimal calorie deficit" including that old advice about "cutting 500 calories a day to lose a pound per week, cutting 1000 calories a day to lose two pounds per week, etc"... like other things in nutrition, you are about to learn that once size (calorie deficit) does not fit all! . . . keep reading

  17. Egg White Protein Vs. Whey Protein Vs. Soy Protein: Which One Wins In a 3-Way Showdown?
    By Tom Venuto
    Egg whites are a staple food in the bodybuilding, physique and figure athlete world. Some bodybuilding trainers and nutritionists even claim that it's better than whey protein and that both egg white and whey protein blow soy out of the water.

Is there any reason that egg white is the superior protein for leaning out and building muscle? Read on to find out... . . . 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!"
