Instead of becoming overwhelmed at all the changes I needed to make, I asked myself if I could follow this plan for one day.
Even though the 7-week competition included my birthday and the holidays, nothing else entered my body.
I did have cravings, especially in the beginning, and my wife and kids continued eating ice cream, popcorn and chicken wings in front me. I injured my back during one of my leg work outs and my legs were not recovering from the cardio, so my decision was to add more cardio and drop a few leg work outs. I used a variety of techniques including supersets and drop sets and I always worked to failure. The fact that I chose to post to the Burn the Fat Inner Circle forums when I had questions, concerns or frustrations was THE main reason I succeeded.
MEN CLICK HERE to discover how to burn belly fat and transform your body from fat to muscle in 49 days or less! WOMEN CLICK HERE to learn the simple tricks to shedding fat from your most stubborn areas - in 49 days - without ever going hungry. What does it take to get better fat loss results in 49 days than most people get in 3 months, 6 months, or even an entire year? 42-year young Tom Laverick burned off so much fat in our most recent Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle 49-day transformation challenge, he was voted one of the top 3 finalists!
The Burn the Fat challenge is not a contest to see who can lose the most weight the fastest - it's the world's first and only all-natural (no supplements required) body composition transformation contest. It's all about feeding the muscle while melting the fat, not about starving or worshipping the scale! Tom dropped 27 pounds of scale weight, but more importantly, after factoring in the change in the body fat percentage and lean body mass (muscle) gained, he reported a total loss of 39 pounds of body fat. And the pictures speak for themselves - The drop in Tom's waistline was so dramatic, he's going to need a new wardrobe! Many people are inspired by success stories like these, but they doubt whether they can transform their own body in only 7 weeks. Indeed, a 49-day challenge is just a short term goal and fitness is an ongoing journey for us all. But he also says he's now a total believer about how much can be accomplished in a little amount of time if you have the right program and the right conditions for accountability and motivation. Read on to hear Tom L's thoughts on all the major factors he believes were critical to his dramatic - and rapid - fat loss. Plan your meals in advance, track everything that you consume, and keep a log so you can review it to see where things went right and things went wrong.
I have fought the battle of the bulge since my childhood, but this time, I made permanent lifestyle changes. What worked best for me: In the beginning, I was on a 3 day split hitting every muscle group 2 times a week.
During the challenge, I had many obstacles to overcome, but I did it and learned a lot about myself in the process. I would love to win a trip to Maui, but neither a prize nor anything the judges decided can truly declare me a winner or a loser. In the past, effective time management eluded me, mostly I never worried about the value of time. I don’t have a big family to fall back on for support, but some of my coworkers have been there to cheer me on. On top of that, the support I received from other Burn the Fat Inner Circle members was second to none, and I thank all of you for that! I owe just about every part of my success in the 49 day challenge to the Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle (BFFM) book. When you’re all done, head over to the Challenge Facebook Page and share your experience with the community! The whole point of this 30 Day Challenge is to get you geared up so that we all head into Summer feeling confident in not only our bodies, but also in our swimwear. I did not receive workouts for days 1, 4 & 7 and I wanted to start this morning but did not find them. And for the first time ever, I'll unveil the new 7-Day "quick start" that gets you going faster than ever before.
And no matter how long they had struggled, Audrey, Tim, Brian and thousands of others achieved these startling transformations with these same "bodybuilder and fitness model" secrets. Now, there's one key factor that everyone who follows this system has in common with the most successful, photoshoot-ready bodybuilders and fitness models alive.
Worse still, I was embarrassed to take my shirt off in public because I had what I thought was the worst affliction a warm-blooded male teenager could have: "Man boobs" - a fat saggy chest. I just laughed at myself right along with the guys who were making fun of me, even though the truth is, I was silently humiliated.
Maybe you've seen that old ad where the skinny kid gets sand kicked in his face by a muscle-bound bully, then gets in shape and beats the bully up? My Abs Were On The Front Page Of The Sports Section In Our Small-Town Pennsylvania Newspaper!
It was like getting to tell the whole world, "Remember that kid from gym class with the manboobs?
Ita€™s the difference between struggling to a€?diet awaya€? unwanted fata€¦ and quickly, efficiently burning it.
So why do you see so many more a€?skinnya€? people who look like the guy on the left, rather than the lean and toned guy on the right? Yes, that means that if you burn fat the right way, you can a€?exposea€? the firm, toned-looking physique you already have, hidden beneath a layer of unwanted fata€¦ if a€?dietinga€? doesna€™t get to it first. BUT their body fat percentage turned out to be what youa€™d expect to see in somebody whoa€™s visibly overweight, even obese.
One woman I tested was about 5-foot-7 and weighed 121 pounds on the scalea€¦ sounds good so far, right? Then we got to her body fat: It measured an astonishingly high 28% a€“ thata€™s 34 pounds of pure fat! Now, I want you to imagine for a second, an arm bone with a one-inch pad of fat surrounding it, kind of like foam insulation around a pipe. And the older you are, the worse the effects, because the older you are, the easier it is to lose muscle. With each new fad a€?dieta€?a€¦ you a€?diet awaya€? lots of lean muscle, and just a little bit of fat. And dieting danger goes beyond just looking a€?skinny fata€?a€¦ because as bad as that sounds, ending up with the skinny-fat metabolism that goes with it is even worse. As hyper-committed as bodybuilders are to burning fata€¦ they avoid a€?dietsa€? like the plague, and ita€™s not just that diets cannibalize musclea€¦ they also damage your metabolism, making it harder and harder to burn more fat off, and keep the fat youa€™ve already burned from creeping back on. Decreased metabolism, hormone imbalance, sluggish thyroid, gnawing hunger pangs, low energy and a€?brain foga€?a€¦ sound familiar? Then, after a few encouraging pounds come offa€¦ just when you think all the suffering might have been worth ita€¦ you hit the dreaded, inevitable a€?plateaua€? where it just a€?stops workinga€? and you end up gaining it all back just like the rest of the 95% of dieters who fail. These claims get people so focused on a€?moving the needlea€? on their scalea€¦ that if they dona€™t measure up on their daily a€?weigh-ina€?, their whole day is ruined! So rather than putting your body through dangerous fads, body-wasting starvation diets, and frustrating a€?plateaus," you get to look forward to a lean, firm, fit-looking body thata€™s strong in every way, and looks it too.
For the past 25 years, Ia€™ve been involved in almost every aspect of fitness a€“ personal trainer, nutrition consultant, fitness model, gym manager and best-selling author. I've had the privilege of helping hundreds of clients in person, plus tens of thousands more online in the last 10 years alone. In that time, my email inbox has never stopped flooding with incredibly inspiring stories from regular folks from every background, age and fitness level who have discovered the life-changing difference between a€?dietsa€? that promise youa€™ll a€?lose weighta€?a€¦ and the way bodybuilders and fitness models burn fat. And these same a€?ex-dietersa€? have continued to make all the Burn the Fat programs bestsellers every year, while countless "dietsa€? and weight loss fads come and go, for no other reason thana€¦ The Burn The Fat System just plain works. All of them are regular people with a€?averagea€? or even a€?worse than averagea€? genetics, not a€?genetic freaka€? bodybuilding fanatics, or celebrities with chefs and personal trainers. Because the most successful bodybuilders, fitness models and athletes will tell you that the foundation of all your results comes from training your mind first.
Ia€™m not talking about any kind of woo-woo a€?think-yourself-thina€? mumbo-jumbo herea€¦ far from it. I'm talking about reprogramming your mind for success, so that instead of fighting against cravings or forcing your self to the gym, your new healthy behaviors turn over to "auto-pilot" mode and all the healthy eating and consistent training that once seemed so hard is as effortless as tying your shoes or brushing your teeth. Olympians, weightlifters, golfers, and other elite athletes have been hip to "mind training" since the 70's, when the Soviets first revealed how they used these techniques to dominate in so many sports. Bodybuilders are masters at this, and if you could get inside their thought process, you'd learn more about body transformation than you ever would by looking at their nutrition journal or training plan.


Countless clients and readers have told me that until they mastered their minds, they could never stay focused, stay motivated or stick with their program. Without fail, those who gloss over this at first and fail to get results, eventually realize the paradox that the biggest secret to physical change is mental change. You might have heard the expression, a€?You cana€™t out-train a lousy dieta€?a€¦ and thata€™s 100% true.
Without the right eating plan that accounts for your individual needs and goals, everything else falls apart. Thata€™s why, if you watch bodybuilders, one thing youa€™ll notice about them is that they always seem to be eating.
They simply follow the simple formula to determine how many calories their bodies need daily to maintain their current weight (the amount theya€™d eat if they didna€™t want to drop or gain a pound)a€¦ and then cut that number by a modest 20%.
That way, you never unintentionally over-eat and store food away as unwanted fata€¦ and you also never trigger your bodya€™s a€?starvation responsea€? by eating too little, so you never feel hungry. After depriving themselves on diet after diet, theya€™re eating without guilt and feeling full, without the hunger pangs, cravings and a€?brain foga€? theya€™re used to. Now, you might be wonderinga€¦ if bodybuilders use food to fuel their metabolic fire, where does the final FAT BURN come from? You see, a€?dietsa€? do get one thing right: You DO need a a€?calorie deficita€? in order to burn fata€¦ in other words, you still need to use up more calories than you eat. The difference is, with Burn The Fat, the a€?deficita€? comes from exercise rather than food alone.
Unlike the a€?dieta€? strategy that tries to starve the fat, the bodybuilder strategy is to BURN the fat with increased activity.
You see, the Burn The Fat way is not about what type of cardio you choose, it's about how you do the cardio of your choice. It's a simple formula of duration X frequency X intensity combined with weekly micro-adjustments, that lets you dial your fat-burning UP or dial it DOWN (if you want to stop losing weight), with whatever type of cardio that makes you happy. And remember - it's lean muscle that gives a great body its shape a€“ with all the right curves, and the strength to do everything you want your body to do.
Don't worry - Ia€™m not going to make you a€?pump irona€? like Arnold Schwarzenegger or spend half your life at the gym a€“ remember, this is designed for ordinary people with lots of other demands on their energy and time. Thata€™s why Ia€™ve built perfectly balanced routines for every goal and level of fitness into the Burn The Fat Program, based on 25 years of experience training hundreds of clients in person and thousands more online. Dona€™t worry about getting a€?bulkya€? or a€?too biga€?, either a€“ believe me, there is no way you will ever wind up looking like a competitive bodybuilder by accident. Alright, that was a lot to covera€¦ You may be feeling a bit overwhelmed, and thata€™s okay. Staying in frequent contact with people in the Burn the Fat community, who were all heading in the same positive direction, made staying the course absolute.
The Newest Burn the Fat program that you can get today is still based on the same bodybuilder-inspired nutrition and training strategies that I developed for personal clients, who expected, no - demanded - success, and those clients have been achieving success with these principles since 1989. In the early days, the only way to learn my system was to hire me in person, to train you one-on-one, in the gym.
Next came Burn the Fat private coaching, where hundreds of people did the program with me in person or long distance by phone or email. A New, increasingly authoritative Burn the Fat Program has been fully updated and released in a never-seen-before online program. This includes the new Burn the Fat Program together with the Burn the Fat Inner Circle, for total immersion in the community, and for online coaching from me. The NEW Burn the Fat program delivers you the same fat-burning techniques my clients have used for years, and delivers it in 7 short and simple lessons. On Day 1 you'll learn the mindset secrets of permanent fat loss including goal setting and motivation tactics that program your brain for success. On Day 2 you'll learn the truth about calories that the diet industry doesn't want you to know - and how many calories you should really eat. On Day 4 you'll learn the "almost magical" combination of three food types that will boost your metabolism for maximum fat loss, increase lean body mass and send your energy levels skyrocketing! On Day 7 you'll discover the "feedback loop" system - the perpetual progress tracking "technology" that guarantees progress and breaks any plateau. And thata€™s just a fraction of the step-by-step, actionable strategies included in the all-new online edition of the Burn the Fat Body Transformation Program. When you order, you get instant access to ALL the Burn the Fat materials the moment you join, and I've broken the course into 7 steps in 7 days, so you're not overwhelmed and I can walk you through each lesson, one day at a time.

You will lose excessive amounts of water and might get dehydrated if you combine a couple of exercises for the entire week.
You have to recognize that burning belly fat means taking recognition of the usual eating habit you had. I listed all the reasons I wanted to complete the challenge, six pack abs, better health, lower blood pressure, more energy, having clothes to wear that fit. I used NLP techniques, mostly visualization, to associate things I didn't like to the foods I craved! On upper body days, I performed 4-5 sets of chest, 4-5 back, 3 for shoulders and 2 each for both triceps and biceps. My upper body workouts lasted about 90 minutes, which I now know was way too long, but again, this was a challenge! I joined the Burn the Fat challenge the night before it started, I had no idea what the Burn the Fat inner circle was about. Diligently maintain a 30% deficit from Total Daily Energy Expenditure and use exercise to increase that deficit as much as possible to really speed up the fat loss.
The word "diet" implies major restrictions and I always went that route in the past, limiting my caloric intake to well below starvation levels.
I CANNOT BELIEVE how much this one little piece of advice from Tom Venuto has meant to me getting to where I am today. My career is in IT and nothing happens on a schedule there except for patches and maintenance.


The biggest support I get is from my girlfriend and she just may not even understand the importance of her role in my life. None of the results of the winners and finalists of our Burn the Fat Challenge are typical. Let others who don’t know any better to waste their time at the gym with their hour+ long workouts. After the challenge is over you can go back and track your progress and see if the number of reps you completed has increased, decreased or stayed the same.
I just did the video all the way through and did not do another video I am so tired from yesterday or I am just really out of shape. The goal-setting and mindset part of the program also helped me achieve emotional, physical and financial goals I never thought possible.
Most people don't know this, but losing muscle is one of the fastest ways to accelerate the effects of aging.
Thata€™s the basic problem with a€?dietsa€?: Every one you try is like taking one step forward and two steps backa€¦ so even if you a€?wina€? and a€?drop some weighta€?, you still lose! And in the last 10 years, the Burn the Fat Program exploded, with over 300,000 people reading my Burn the Fat books.
Follow this "mental training" formula and you'll be practically "hypnotized" into eating right and training strong. Youa€™ll learn how to quickly begin your own custom workout plan, perfectly tailored for your unique body and goals. This is the "success system that can't fail." By learning how to measure your results, chart your progress and make micro-adjustments each week, you'll avoid time-wasting detours and achieve your goals faster and easier than ever before . Now you can enjoy our delicious, original recipes, all created and taste-tested by me first, before they were shared with our whole community of burners.
Most supplements are scams, some can be dangerous and the few that have scientific support have such a small effect, you would get more results just by doing a better job with your eating and training. But you don't need expensive machines and you dona€™t have to join a gym - you can work out at home if you prefer. Women have different needs and the program gives you the exact calculations for the female metabolism (there are separate calculations for men).
The science shows that college-age kids dona€™t have to worry about hormone levels and muscle loss a€“ getting in shape is easy for them. We have thousands of members in over 150 countries and you can adapt the food choices to work wherever you live. Burn The Fat Inner Circle is a private membership website that you access online with a user name and password that you'll choose on a registration page after you sign up.
Think of strength, resistance and cardiovascular workouts and imagine yourself submerged in body water after doing these exercises. If you want to shed pounds and burn fat all at the same time, the secret is to give regard to what you eat. I thought about how I would feel after all those changes had been accomplished and how proud I would be of myself. So the times when self doubt crept in, or when I was hurt, sore, hungry, angry and whiney, I would tell myself it was only one day, and then I would repeat the mantra I created to snap myself out of it: "Do you just want to compete, or do you want to win?" I would look at the picture of the abs and review the reasons why I was in the challenge and then carry on.
I admit, my training was kind of crazy, but this WAS a challenge - it was a competition and there's only one grand prize winner. My advice to anyone thinking about doing a Burn the Fat challenge would be to make a commitment to yourself in writing and list all the benefits you will receive as a result of completing the challenge or reaching the goal.
I found the resources; articles and interviews within the inner circle helped me get started on the right track.
I now know that diet doesn't mean eliminating foods from my life, diet means limiting my calories to a certain deficit below my maintenance level. Use that time deadline and urgency factor to push yourself harder so you can see exactly what you're capable of doing. When I hug her I want her close to me, near me and to feel her warmth, I do not want to feel like she is a body in orbit around me and I do not want her feeling that way! Today I see time as very precious to me, and as a result, during the challenge, even with 2 jobs and school, I managed to get all my workouts in and maintain healthy eating habits. We bodyrockers are getting the benefits from short, intense, and fun full body workouts that burn tuns of calories, boost your metabolism, shape your body, improve your cardio & we are continuing to do this everyday for 30 Days Together – No Excuses !!
But I am used to workout for an hour and I’m not sure, if these 12 minutes are enough. As a bonus, you'll get the top 10 most popular (and delicious) Burn the Fat recipes of all time. Start with any one of the four workout programs designed for every level from beginner to advanced, then easily a€?mix and matcha€? exercises, sets, and tempos so you never hit a a€?plateaua€? or get bored. Fast to make for busy time-strapped lifestyles, and no previous cooking experience is required. And you dona€™t need to spend hundreds on a private trainer because Ia€™ll be watching you every step of the way through my Burn The Fat Inner Circle Personal Support and Motivation Community. You dona€™t need any supplements to burn fat or build muscle and you'll never see ads or promotions for supplements in our members area (I don't endorse or sell supplements and never will). The beginner workouts can be done with nothing but free weights (like dumbbells) and your own body weight as resistance.
The workout programs work equally well for men and women (women need muscle too, most women simply want muscle tone, not muscle bulk). After you submit your payment details, youa€™ll be forwarded to the new member registration page on the member's-only (Inner Circle) site, where you'll be asked to choose your private user name and password. Those yummy delectable burgers are tempting, those frosted sundaes remain so exciting to the palate; but all of these accumulate as belly fat in the future. It is said that the equation is burn out 3,500 calories and you will shed a pound of weight from your body. When you have done that, you can condition your mind to perform all other tips mentioned herein.
It is important to consider changing your lifestyle before you even see the results you want. For cardio I had over 100 sessions during the challenge, broken into three fairly equal categories of slow (Walking), moderate (Jogging, swimming, bike, elliptical, treadmill), and intense (sprints, running, stairs, hills, swimming).
Everyone shares so openly, I think I know more about many of the people in the inner circle than I do about some of my own friends or family! Work harder than you've ever worked before, prepare yourself mentally and use short term goals - even goals for just one week at a time. I want to spend a long life with her and her children and our grandchildren when they come.
You get 6 months unlimited membership along with your Burn the Fat Body Transformation System. This program is new and once word spreads, and it gets super busy, Ia€™ll either have to cap membership, raise the price, or have Burn The Fat certified coaches take over for me.
Doing the math, that will mean you can lose up to three pounds if your 2-week regimen will mean burning 500 calories a day. When I do another challenge, I will change my routine and give my body more time to recuperate between weight lifting sessions. Strive for them, and when you hit them, give yourself a reward - anything, even something like a movie. Photos were however taken only 49 days apart, were date verified and were not retouched in any way.
This includes access to the discussion forums where you can ask me anything and I will be your personal coach. For the Burn the Fat holiday challenge, I had 27 weight lifting days over the 49 days, 15 upper body and 12 lower body. This is no negative comment, just a hint and maybe suggestion for execisers and hopefully future videos.
I visualized myself on the beach in Maui with warm sand between my toes, the sun warming my tanned six pack abs; I could taste the salt in the air carried by the gentle breeze.
I found Tom's food guide and I decided I would only eat A+ and A foods and for liquids I would drink only water and green tea!
