The Body Fat Solution
336 pages; Penguin
Tom Venuto is a competitive bodybuilder, a personal trainer, and a motivational coach.
Offering the opposite of a quick fix, Venuto is honest about the effort it takes to drop a significant number of pounds. This is the book for women ready to tackle long-term weight loss.
Chapter 5—"Mental Training Solution"—makes a case for changing your mental habits before you tackle the physical ones. There's good advice about getting your brain on your side.
Venuto says you can still eat out at restaurants two times per week—if you take care when ordering.
The book contains more motivation than concrete information.
Offers five warm-up moves and two alternating plans made up of strengthening exercises broken into "supersets"—two moves that you do in a row, without taking a break, to increase intensity.
