Burn The Fat Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: What are the actual contents of this book? What is it telling you? Does it have workout schedules or routines? Is it mostly just pictures of exercises? Is it a diet book? Is it recipes, or lists of foods to eat and not to eat? I have a hard time sticking to overly rigid diets. If you say I have to eat egg whites every morning and tuna out of the can at lunch and plain chicken breast at dinner and a protein shake at night - I've tried diets like that before and I can't stick with it. I watched your fat loss presentation on the home page and I'm very interested, but can you give me more specifics on the program itself?
A: Thanks for your questions! I've answered each one of them below.
An Information-Packed, Full-Length Book, in E-Book Format
First of all, Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle is an information-packed e-book. Many readers call it their "fat loss nutrition bible."
A lot of e-books these days cost as much as $77 and they often contain only 50-70 pages. Burn The Fat is a real full-length book (340 pages), in digital (PDF e-book) format - you get many times the information for nearly half the cost of other programs.
Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle is incredibly comprehensive and detailed. If you like to know WHY you’re doing something instead of just being told WHAT to do, you’ll appreciate the detail in the 300+ pages.
If you like to have structure, if you enjoy planning and are you're detail-oriented, then Burn The Fat is ideal for you (which is probably why engineers, accountants, math buffs and other analytical types always seem to LOVE the Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle program).
The entire e-book is text, with the exception of the appendix, which contains charts for calorie and nutritional content of recommended foods, protein, fat and carbohydrate tables, sample menus and a progress chart.
You'll Learn Exactly Which Foods Are Best For Burning Fat
In the book, you'll find a separate chapter dedicated to each macro-nutrient: protein, carbohydrates and fats. You'll get lists of the exact foods you should eat and which foods to avoid. (The bonus reports, Foods That Burn Fat, Foods That Turn to Fat, and 'The A Food, B Food Lecture' go into even greater detail about food choices).
There are no weird or unusual foods to eat in this program. It's basic, healthy, "clean eating." The meal plans consist of regular foods you can get at your local grocery store, natural foods store or farmer's market, and the variety is virtually endless - it's a very flexible program when it comes to food choices.
No supplements, drinks or shake mixes are required (although you may use meal replacement shakes or protein for convenience if you choose). You don't have to eat anything you don't like, but you DO have to eat healthy, natural foods most of the time (some free meals are allowed, so no foods are completely forbidden!)
The principles in the book are based on the same methods used by physique athletes (bodybuilding, fitness, figure), who are the leanest muscular athletes in the world. These techniques have been proven in the physique world for decades.
But even though the book is written by a bodybuilder, it's not just for bodybuilders. These techniques can be applied by anyone for maximizing fat burning.
NOT a Traditional Diet Book or Recipe Book
In Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle, you will learn EXACTLY what to eat to lose fat and build muscle. However, This not a recipe book or cookbook. It's also not a traditional diet book.
The typical diet book you get at the bookstores these days is about 1/3 - 1/2 information and 1/2 - 2/3 recipes. Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle is 100% information - no filler - just valuable content designed to give you an education and help you lose fat and get in shape fast!
Training Programs To Burn Fat And Build Lean Muscle
There's an entire chapter on cardiovascular training for fat loss, including the recommended types of exercise, plus the ideal frequency, intensity and duration for your workouts. The cardio training can include both traditional cardio as well as high intensity interval training (HIIT).
There are four complete weight training routines from beginner to advanced, including "aggressive" routines plus routines that require as little as two to three days per week for time-crunched people.
The two advanced programs are based on bodybuilding and fitness/figure model methods of training, which are designed to sculpt a beautiful, cosmetically-pleasing physique. The workouts will get you in shape, but they are not for conditioning or sports training per se (these workouts are designed to make you look good naked!)
You do NOT have to join a gym to follow this program, although some very basic weight training equipment - at least a set of dumbbells, barbells and free weights - is required to get maximum benefit. As you become more advanced, you may want to join a gym or add some additional equipment to your home gym set up.
Optional: Follow Your Own Workout And Use The Burn The Fat Nutrition Program
NOTE: I've found that many people already have a favorite workout, but they are lost when it comes to nutrition. Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle is so flexible in its 4-element structure (mental training, cardio training, weight training and nutrition), that you can pick and choose which elements you want to use.
For example, you can follow your own favorite training program and simply use the Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle nutrition program. Burn The Fat nutrition works with any workout routine - as long as the routine includes resistance training.
Not a Picture Book
Some books were designed to be photographic guides to exercise routines, and for many people, that type of picture book can be invaluable. However, Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle is an information manual, not a picture book. This program assumes that you already know the basic weight training movements such as how to curl a dumbbell, perform a lunge or do a bench press exercise.
Powerful Motivation and Goal Setting Techniques Explained
No other diet, nutrition or fitness book goes into such detail about mental training techniques to set goals, end procrastination, increase motivation and help you stick with your program. These are the EXACT methods that Olympic and pro athletes use for peak performance.
In chapter one of Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle, you will learn dozens of easy, practical goal setting and motivation techniques that will not only inform you, but INSPIRE you to apply what you learn and develop habits you will stick with for life.
Remember, even if you already know what to do, you still need to get yourself to do it! In Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle, you not only get a proven and effective program, you get the motivational tools you need to make your new habits stick and your results last!
