Just wondering if anyone has bought this? http://www.burnthefat.com/order.html
I'm considering it...but it just seems like so much money for a PDF!

The thing is - there's no quick fix. No matter what it costs, no-one has "the secret" to weight loss. If there was a quick, easy and effective method, everyone would do it!

You KNOW the answer to weight loss. It's a healthy, low fat, balanced diet and regular exercise. There's loads of free information on the internet, like in this website/forum, and elsewhere. Your GP is a great source of information.

If I really wanted to spend money on weight loss information, I'd go to a professional - someone who you could ask questions, and someone who could specify a program to you. You could ask a GP to refer you to a dietician, or go to a naturopath or even a chemist. That would probably cost about the same amount as that pdf!

Yep I have bought it, and read it, and incorporated a lot of aspects of it into my life. I reckon it's great, and definitely not a quick fix. Very sensible advice and a few more advanced tips and tricks.

I would consider Tom to be an expert (more so than any regular gp or pt) and definitely worthy of taking advice from. I believe that if there's something you want to achieve, look to someone who has already achieved your goals, and model those people :wink:

This isn't a quick fix! Tom venuto does not claim to know the secret. His plan isnt a quick and easy method, he admits that weight loss is hard work!

Its not one of those gimmick weight loss plans.

I purchased it and its like my bible to weight loss. Completly worth it.

He has worked on it for ten years, he know what works through trial and error. It explains the bodys process of losing weight.

http://www.burnthefat.com will explain it all.

Mandie didnt say it was a quick fix, she is saying in general that there are no quick fixes to become fit healthy and happy.

I know, she hasn't read it so she cant say that anyway.

All I was saying is that the Burn The Fat book is not one of those diets that promise a 'quick fix', it's a lifestyle change. Tom Venuto does not promise anything, he admits its very hard to lose fat.

I don't even regard it as a diet, its like 350 pages of information about the processes that happen in the body, the importance of goal setting, and information about micro nutrients and exercise. I highly recomend it, theres lots of info on his site about it.

Yup, sorry.. looks like there actually is some good info in there. Sorry about that, I tend to be quite cynical when it comes to things sold on the Internet for weight loss... the vast majority of them are expensive, and not that helpful.

But it sounds like this guy's book has been helpful for a couple of members here, and if you think you need some extra info, looks like it might be the way to go. Good luck!

Before I read the other replies, I was gonna say more or less the same thing. Sometimes I click on the weight loss ads when they pop up, just for a laugh. Some of them are SO bad that I can't believe ANYONE would think it was real.

My opinion, when it comes to anything like this, is be critical, find what info you can, see if it seems legit. Don't believe it just because someone tells you to, see if it passes what you know already. Which is what you (all) seem to have done, so woot! ;)

Thats the way to go though, there is so much crap out there on the internet I usually just disregard everything! Although someone recomended this to me on another forum, and the price is quite cheap when you look at all the information you get!
