Fat Burning Women
Do you wish to learn more about the Fat Burning Furnace diet program, and whether or not it really does help you to burn body fat fast? Initially I thought that this ebook was going to be another fitness guide that was only going to teach the basic aspects of eating right and working out. So is this program really useful?

What Is The Fat Burning Furnace Program?

The Fat Burning Furnace Diet is written by Rob Poulos. If you visit the sales site you can hear him tell his inspiring story of his and his wife's diet struggles. It is a 158 page diet guide on how to lose fat and gain lean muscle in order to look better and also raise your resting metabolic rate or BMR.

This is how much energy you use just to keep your body going. The higher it is the less fat you will store. That is the 'furnace' part of the fat burning furnace diet. Rob Poulos details how you can raise your BMR so that your body burns hundreds more calories each day without you needing to change your eating habits. This is mainly by increasing the lean muscle in your body which uses more calories and becomes the powerhouse or 'Fat Burning Furnace' in the name of the diet.

There are 3 levels to the system:
  1. Deluxe
  2. Ultimate
  3. Ultimate version with the 'BlowTorch' video upgrade
In the Deluxe package you get the main 158 page digital manual plus you get 3 months of email coaching and an email newsletter.

With the Ultimate you get the guide plus two online tools - a Metabolic Rate Calculator and the Body fat Analyzer. You also get a detailed Progress Tracker for the workouts which you can print out and an upgrade to 12 months of email coaching.

The 'Blow Torch' upgrade gives you everything above plus a 21 page digital manual with 7 videos varying in length from 16 - 21 minutes where the author performs the workout for you to follow.

This is a great option for those who can't always get to a gym. I preferred this option myself as I think it is better value for money and covers everything.

The Fat Burning Furnace diet covers nutrition and discusses:-

  • Because this program is built on weight training, it doesn't contain too much info on cardio workouts which is something that I missed in this program
  • You will need to commit to working out regularly, so if you hate working out this isn't for you

The Atkins diet has helped many people to reduce the weight and minimize the health related problems associated with obesity. It has assisted many people to regain the strength and shape up the body.

But it can not be proved through well documented studies that effects such as these have been noted. Also, long term caloric limitations can lead to nutritional deficiencies. Even Dr Atkins ended up developing a whole line of supplements to balance the nutrition of long term dieters. This is the one of the bad points of this diet plan. But if you carefully follow the Akins diet plan, you will get to know that intake of carbohydrates are restricted only in the first phase and then gradually the carbs intake increases. Also it is highly recommended to take vitamin and mineral supplements with this diet plan.

Some also states that high fat intake may lead to heart attack. But as the carbohydrate intake is limited, the main energy source of body becomes fats so fat intake will not harm as you are balancing it with carbohydrate intake.

Also some wonders that though it is a weight reducing diet plan, how it allows to it almost everything. The main reason of it is, Atkins diet plan insist the wholesome food. As reducing weight by starving is a wrong approach, it will not starve you but make you eat balanced food.
