This past January the guys at over at the Burn the Fat websites completed their first ever body transformation challenge contest.
But their contest was NOTHING like the biggest loser.
In fact, Josh Ketter, the overall men's winner, and Ryan Cochrane, one of the finalists, only lost a pound.
Now, you must be thinking, "what the heck kind of weird body transformation contest were they running where the winner and the finalists only drop a pound?
Well, it would seem weird if you thought that success at body transformation meant dropping weight on the scale
But did you ever stop to think about the difference between fat weight and muscle weight?
Think about it - if those contestants on the biggest loser gain muscle - they get penalized, right?
Penalize someone for gaining muscle?
Shouldn't contestants be REWARDED for gaining muscle as well as burning fat?
That's the problem with wt loss contests today and with a lot of people in the industry in general - they are obsessed with scale weight but they don't pay any attention to body composition (the fat-to-muscle ratio).
Of course, some of the contestants in that contest did drop a lot of fat - 15, 20, even 25 lbs in only 50 days. But the person who dropped the most pounds was NOT necessarily voted as the winner.
That explains how the judging was done - some of the winners were rewarded because they made tremendous improvements in their body composition, even though their scale weight didn't change that much.
Josh lost 8 pounds of fat and gained 7 pounds of muscle in just 50 days. He only lost a pound on the scale because the muscle weight replaced the fat weight.
Ryan Cochrane lost 8 pounds of fat while gaining 7.7 lbs of muscle in 50 days. His weight hardly changed.
Sarah kensington actually GAINED a pound, from 119 to 120 but her body fat decreased from 19% to a ripped 12.6%. Thats a 7.9 pound GAIN in lean body mass and a 7 pound loss of body fat - remarkable for a MAN, almost unheard of for a woman!
When you look at their before and after pictures, you can see that even though their weight changed by less than a pound, they TOTALLY TRANSFORMED THEIR BODIES!
They gained muscle and lost fat at the same time!
Maybe you're thinking, "wait a minute, I thought it was impossible to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time? Don't you need a calorie deficit to burn fat and a calorie surplus to build muscle?"
Well, yes and no. Calories do matter, but according to fat loss expert Tom Venuto, the guy who sponsored the recent body composition fitness contest, it's much more complicated than that because of things like
within-day energy balance, hormonal fluctuations and "energy partitioning."
It was these unusual contest results that prompted Tom to dig into the scientific research on concurrent muscle gain and fat loss and create a new program that he calls:
"THE HOLY GRAIL BODY TRANSFORMATION SYSTEM: How to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time"
This is not an easy goal to achieve - So I'm sorry, butI have no miracle for you. If you're looking for magic bullets, go elsewhere. This is a serious and very strategic program.
Concurrent muscle gain and fat loss is the most difficult goal to achieve.
That's why people call it the "holy grail"; because it's so elusive.
BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE: IT IS POSSIBLE.
I'm sure you've heard this subject debated ad nauseum on discussion forums. Those debates probably left you confused and not sure what to believe either.
This new ebook sets the record straight in such a way that you could say it's the LAST WORD on gaining muscle and burning fat at the same time;
it's impressively referenced with peer-reviewed research and frankly, it just makes sense.
Tom Venuto's previous best selling ebook, Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle (BFFM) has become known to many as a "fat loss bible"
Burn The Fat, Feed the Muscle
But BFFM is designed specifically for fat loss. What if you want to lose fat AND gain muscle?
That's exactly why this new program was created.
It's the first course of it's kind that builds on the techniques of BFFM and teaches a system for gaining muscle and burning fat simultaneously,
and explains the process scientifically.
If you're skeptical, I don't blame you. Even I was skeptical when I heard about it.
But when you see BOTH; real-world case studies AND the scientific proof, it makes you want to stop and take a look.
Right now the 1st edition of Tom’s new HOLY GRAIL body transformation ebook is available for just the next 3 days in limited release.
It's actually not even for sale separately yet.
What Tom decided to do was offer the holy grail ebook as bonus with the purchase of his Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle ebook.
The Holy Grail ebook is available only for the next 3 days at:
The Holy Grail ebook
(offer expires on Friday march 5th, 2010)
On March 6th, he's going to take the holy grail course off the market for a while, to correspond with some of his new customers and collect feedback
and case studies to incorporate in the 2nd edition.
Then the grail ebook will be officially re-released later this year at the regular retail price.
So, this is a great opportunity to pick up Tom's fat loss bible AND get the holy grail ebook for fr-ree at the same time.
If you'd like to be in this first wave of people to try this new combined muscle-building and fat burning system, this is the ONLY way to order at the moment:
Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle AND The Holy Grail (FOR FREE)
Purchase a copy of Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle ebook, and the HOLY GRAIL body transformation ebook comes along with BFFM for fr-ee.
