The Body Fat Solution by Tom Venuto.

This book is great for anyone who struggles with emotional eating. Tom focuses on the solution and not the symptoms of obesity.

I have only read up to page 23, but I have previously read his Ebook, 'Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle' and I trust his word.

I recommend this book to people who struggle with beginning and adhering to a program. I wouldn't really recommend this to someone who is already dialed into the Zone and an experienced Crossfitter.

Although Tom Venuto is hardcore bodybuilder, he recommends full body movements instead of single joint, isolation movements. This book would complement a Crossfit program.

Re: What are you reading?

Recently finished "Ghengis: Birth of an Empire" by Conn Iggulden. Amazing historical fiction about Ghengis Khan from early childhood to about 18... first in a series of 4. Reading volume one of his "Empire" series of hist fiction tracing Julius Caeser. Lots of criticism out there regarding historical accuracy, but it's FICTION. Great writing style, reat story. If I want history, I'll read history (but not inclued to for Rome after 4 years of HS Latin).

Re: What are you reading?

Just started A Fool's Progress by Ed Abbey. The Monkey Wrench Gang by Ed Abbey has to be one of my all time favorite books.

I have heard A Fool's Progress is just as good, if not better. I look forward to seeing.
