The Secrets of the Leanest People in the World

That's the tag line in this weight loss plan, a book written by Tom Venuto, a fitness veteran and natural bodybuilder.

Tom was inspired to get back into shape after gaining about twenty pounds amid his college years - and was given the nickname 'Fat Boy'.

He tested several methods for ridding fat - and now they are available in print for all to read and put into practice.

The Book Contents

The book contains all of the following:

1. How to lose weight.

2. How to gain muscle, to tone the body.

3. How to develop a healthy routine that will last a lifetime.

4. It can be used as a future reference and referral guide.

Should You Purchase the Book?

The book is available in hardcover and because the plan works towards establishing a healthy lifestyle - it gets our thumb's up.

Too many weight loss and toning programs and plans promise instant weight loss, and this doesn't hold true in the Land of Reality. It takes time to accomplish and achieve fitness goals.

Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle makes no 'instant' promises. The individual has to make a personal commitment to embrace a healthier lifestyle in order to achieve a healthier body.

No matter how much weight that you need to lose, this plan can assist in setting a healthy daily pattern. And that's how the human body operates best - whether it's setting meal times, sleep times, exercise times or in establishing a healthy lifestyle.

Diet Bites Dieting Tips on How to Burn Calories to Lose Weight

Regarding weight loss, what does 'burning calories' mean in simple lingo?

Calories represent energy. In turn, energy is used to fuel the body as well as in meeting the nutritional requirements of the body.

And of course, energy is obtained through the foods and beverages consumed in the daily diet.

When an excess of energy (calories) is consumed, it is stored in the fat cells for future use - no matter what food source the energy came from (even skinny carrots). Too little calories, and the body draws the stored energy from the fat cells.

Decreasing calories in the daily diet is just one method that will assist in weight loss. When combined with exercise, the dieter has an unbeatable team for weight loss.

However, when the term 'burning calories' is mentioned, it generally refers to activity and exercise.

What are the best exercises for burning calories?  

The best exercises for burning calories include activities that involve the heart and lungs.  Keeping this in mind, here is our short list of the best exercises for burning calories: jogging, fast walking, climbing stairs, trampoline, jumping rope, swimming, horseback riding, roller skating, tennis and hiking.

What can exercise do for my weight loss plan? A moderate exercise plan can stimulate a greater amount of weight loss than dieting alone.  In addition, a moderate activity plan can assist you in accomplishing the following:

* Strengthen muscles to make the body appear leaner.

* Strengthen internal organs of the body for a stronger heart, lungs and muscles.

* Strengthen bones.

* Add stamina - balance, coordination, improved posture and confidence.

* And of course, exercise stimulates weight loss by burning calories - whether they are derived from quick energy or stored energy.  When combined with a smart diet, weight loss results can be impressive!
