On Burning Fat, Bodybuilding and Life …

1 05 2012

I recently came across the following blog about burning fat and being more healthy.

This guy Tom Venuto has an excellent blog called, appropriately enough, the Burn The Fat Blog.  Love it!

I guess he’s a bodybuilder:

One article he recently posted has some great advice.  As I read through this list, I realized that this is good advice for living life, not just for losing weight!

Check it out:
