When I first started reading the book I was impressed, but as I keep reading, I am really impressed!  Not to sound like an infomercial but Tom Venuto truly covers everything in regards to losing weight and building muscle.  He writes about understanding calories and balancing macronutrients, good and bad fats, protein, carbohydrates, hydration, nutrient timing, cardio training, weight training, plateaus, goal setting and so much more.  I know many other books cover the same things and believe me I have read many, but something just clicked while reading this book.  It all makes sense and I truly feel that if I follow the guidelines I will achieve success.  Tom doesn’t sugar coat things, so I know it’s going to be hard work, but I am ready!  There is so much more I could say, but I know results speak louder than words.
