What made the experience of listening to Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle the most enjoyable?

I am a qualified fitness instructor and currently studying personal training and clinical nutrition. This is the best audio book I have listened to and teaches you the correct methods of helping you get to the best shape in your life. The four principles of mental, cardio, resistance and nutrition training are very well explained in in good depth. I am now a follower of Tom venuto and hope to someday have the level of knowledge he has in order to help others get the best from a fit and healthy lifestyle.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The narrator Is great. Tom's first book used a different narrator which was a shame as tom's voice is much kinder to the ears and in a pleasant manner. Well done!!

What about Tom Venuto’s performance did you like?

Great performance.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Tom tells his story of how he archieved his goals from being a fattish guy to a many time winner of bodybuilding competitions. Great storyline.

Any additional comments?

Very much recommended.

  • The Warrior Diet

  • Switch on Your Biological Powerhouse for High Energy, Explosive Strength, and a Leaner, Harder Body

Along with the many benefits of leisure-class living comes obesity and its attendant ailments. In The Warrior Diet, Ori Hofmekler looks not forward but backward for a solution - to the primal habits of early cultures such as nomads and hunter-gatherers, the Greeks, and the Romans. Based on survival science, this book proposes not ordinary dietary changes but rather a radical yet surprisingly simple lifestyle overhaul.

What would have made The Warrior Diet better?

The narrator is a tad annoying and the whole principles of the diet are not for long term. Also the concept of eating anything you want at tea time makes it not a workable long term solution and can mess up your metabolism. There are some good tips that can be taken from this book in relation to eating fruit and veg and some good advise on exercise.

What will your next listen be?

Burn the fat and feed the muscle by Tom venuto.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Pretty boring

Where does Exploring Creation with Human Anatomy and Physiology rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very good and will help all newcomers to the subject.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Good narrator.

Any additional comments?

Lots of great feedback for this book. Only downside is that it does make reference to God a fair bit and if you don't believe in god then it can make a few eye rolling moments.
Very much recommended book and happy with the purchase.
