Almost everyone knows about the biggest loser - that reality show/ weight loss contest on TV where overweight people people drop ridiculous amounts of weight – like 15 or 20 lbs in a week, and 150 or 200 lbs by the time the show is over.
Earlier this year, Tom Venuto and 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?
Shouldn’t contestants be REWARDED for gaining muscle as well as burning fat?
That’s the problem with weight loss contests today and with a lot of popular diet and fitness programs – they’re 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.
The winners were chosen 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%. That's 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!
You could see from their before and after photos that even though their weight changed by less than a pound, they TOTALLY TRANSFORMED THEIR BODIES!
How? 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 transformation contest, it’s much more complicated than that because of things like 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 around it that he calls:
“THE HOLY GRAIL BODY TRANSFORMATION SYSTEM: How to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time”
The program was just released at:
It’s refreshing that Tom does not B.S. you about about the kind of results you can get. In fact, he clearly states that losing fat while simultaneously gaining muscle is the most difficult goal to achieve.
That’s why people call it the “holy grail”; because it’s so elusive.
But “difficult” doesn’t mean “impossible.” It’s totally possible to lose fat while gaining muscle at the same time, if you have the right plan.
You may have heard this subject debated before on blogs or discussion forums. Those debates probably left you confused and not sure what to believe either.
This new “Holy Grail” program sets the record straight
It’s impressively referenced with peer-reviewed research and frankly, it just makes sense.
Most people are skeptical about this at first. But when you see BOTH; real-world case studies AND the scientific proof, it makes you want to stop and take a look.
