It's unmistakable there is a huge need for a bodybuilding diet plan. Today there are diet ebooks all over the web, not to mention more supplements, weight loss programs, ab machines, workout videos and "magic" diet pills than you can keep track of.
It can be tempting to fall victim to these "fast and easy," "just take a pill" weight loss claims that are clearly too good to be true, but your curiosity gets the better of you.
But when the pain gets great enough, when you've been burned...AGAIN...you start to wise up. You shy away from "quick fixes" and begin to figure out the hard way about what really works; a calorie deficit, right food intake, smart training, changing your lifestyle and switching out your former negative habits with positive new ones.
Through all the internet diets that have come and gone in the previous decade, there is one that has stood the test of time: Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle. It's been on the internet best seller list since 2003...every year! Men and women of every age in more than 141 countries have lost anywhere from a few pounds to 253 pounds. This program has a reputation for being sensible, science-based, honest and effective, and consistently gets positive reviews.
The author, Tom Venuto, has his degree in exercise science and has held certifications as a strength and conditioning specialist and personal trainer, but more significantly, Tom walks the talk. He is a natural-for-life bodybuilder, which means that he's never taken steroids or other body-enhancing drugs. Venuto has competed in bodybuilding 28 times and has 6-pack abs you have to see to believe!
Many people are encouraged when they hear that Tom is a lot like them and that he was not genetically predisposed to be lean. It gives them the hope that they can do it too.
What the Program Includes
BFFM is published in PDF format so you can download the ebook. It's a thorough book, 300+ pages, so if you're searching for a quick read, this might not be the book for you. :) On the other hand, if you're a detail person, or if you want to know not just what to do, but also why you're doing it, then this program is precisely what you're looking for.
For more than 20 years, the writer has studied physique athletes (bodybuilders, female figure competitors and fitness models). That's the whole premise of this book: If you want to get lean as fast as possible, wouldn't it make sense to find the leanest folks in the world, find out how they did it, and do what they do?
The idea of a program based on bodybuilder and fitness model techniques makes perfect sense, although it does intimidate a few folks at first.
Venuto quickly puts your fears to rest when he says this program "was created BY a bodybuilder, but it's not just FOR bodybuilders." In fact, the book easily could have been titled, "What every man and woman can learn from bodybuilders about permanent fat loss."
The nutrition techniques will work for anyone because they advance in stages from beginner to advanced.
Begin at Phase One, the "baseline" diet, and only progress to future phases if you plan on competing in a fitness or bodybuilding competition.
If you want to get "ripped", with the six pack abs look – you can use Phase Two and Phase Three of the program, where you will find the more advanced techniques that lots of folks have used to prepare for their first bodybuilding or figure competitions.
This Bodybuilding Diet Plan is All About Nutrition
It only makes sense that the primary focus of this ebook is nutrition, since that is the most significant key to getting lean. You could have the best training program in the world, but if you eat more calories than you burn, you'll gain fat regardless of your well-designed training plan.
In the chapters on nutrition, you'll find out how to set up a meal plan you can enjoy by using Tom's menu "template" system: You just choose the foods you like (pick from the recommended food lists), plug them into the meal plan template, and your menus virtually create themselves.
You also discover the reality about six pack abs: Body fat tissue lies on TOP of the abdominal muscles, so you'll NEVER see your abs unless your body fat gets low enough. You can't burn fat off your abs with abdominal exercises like crunches or sit ups. You need to get the nutrition right to accomplish very low body fat levels.
Everything you need to know about calories, protein, carbs and fat to get low levels of body fat is in this ebook. Learn the truth about low carb and high protein diets. You'll get the inside scoop on fat burning foods – including lists of what to eat and when to eat them.
…And About Weight Training
You also will be taught how to set up a training program. Top natural bodybuilding and fitness champions use these same workout routines. Also, you can follow your own workout if you like, because any workout will work well with this bodybuilding diet plan.
The training program includes two parts: weight training and cardiovascular training. You'll need access to basic equipment at home like dumbbells and barbells, or you can workout in a gym. (Note: Photos and elaborate instructions on how to execute each exercise are not provided. The focus is on the nutrition component, so it is assumed you are knowledgeable about how to perform basic weight training exercises.)
Individualizing your program is a central theme in Chapter 5, which explains metabolic individuality and how to determine your unique body type. Contrary to popular belief, there is no one-size-fits-all nutrition program. If you have special needs, for example, if you're lactose intolerant, allergic to gluten or if you're just a picky eater, you can easily modify the menus to work for you.
As if the bodybuilding diet plan and weight training plan weren't enough, Chapter 1 contains the best explanation of goal setting, mental training and the psychology of motivation that you will ever ready in ANY book. If you know what to do but you have a hard time doing it (i.e., if old bad habits keep haunting you or if you're inconsistent with your diet or nutrition), you'll discover the solution in the mental training, not the physical training.)
Will a Bodybuilding Diet Plan Work For Me?
This program is no quick fix. You won't get six pack abs or a body like a fitness model by exercising a few minutes a day and eating haphazardly or cheating often. This program requires effort and requires structure. Actually, that's the reason many BFFM customers state for why they bought the program in the first place - it candidly admits that fat loss is hard work. However, there is no question - if you follow the program, you will get very, very lean.
