The Fat Burning Furnace book is a weight loss system, created by Rob Poulos.
I wanted to find out what was so great about Rob’s weight loss methods, having heard so much about his system.
So, I recently checked it out — okay, I’ll admit it — when I first heard about this, I was ready to blow it off as another gimmicky product.
As a registered dietitian, I see a lot of junk being advertised as the “solution“ to all your weight loss woes.
Yes, I am a sceptic!
But alas, despite the slightly irritating title, I am pleasantly surprised by this system.
What is the Fat Burning Furnace?
The Fat Burning Furnace book doesn’t involve a restrictive eating plan (which is what I expected), but rather it focuses on a healthy way of eating, and incorporating weight training into your weekly routine.
If your mind boggles when you think about weight training, and you don’t really know where to begin, this product is perfect for you.
It will teach you how to workout at a high intensity to help you lose weight.
And, before you think you couldn’t keep up with that, you only need to workout for 15 – 25 minutes with Rob’s system.
So, onto the pros and cons of the Fat Burning Furnace…
Pros of the Fat Burning Furnace Book
- It has a none crash dieting approach.
- It contains total body workouts for beginner, intermediate or advanced levels.
- The program is pretty easy to follow, with images on how to perform the exercises, and charts on each routine.
- It doesn’t need much time to complete — so it’s perfect if you have a busy schedule.
- As well as encouraging high intensity training, Rob also encourages lighter activities, such as walking, on “off” days, which I think is important too.
- There’s a section on exercising with no equipment, which could be performed anywhere.
- It’s suitable for both men and women.
- There’s also a section on what to do after the first 12 weeks, which will help you to keep progressing.
For me, the best bit about this system is that it’s so time friendly.
Most of us struggle to find enough time in our days. But, this system gives you a short, yet effective, workout in only 15 – 25 minutes per day. I think that’s a real bonus.
Cons of the Fat Burning Furnace Book
- The section on dieting isn’t terribly detailed, but it’s adequate.
- One thing I do take exception with, is the suggestion that meal replacement powders and bars can be a good substitute for daily meals or snacks — I don’t agree with that, unless recommended by your doctor or dietitian.
- The exercises require weights. So, you will either need to head off to the gym, or have access to weights at home. As I said above, there are bodyweight exercises included, however they don’t cover everything.
A minimum of 30 minutes exercise per session is recommended by experts, and with this program suggesting routines that take up to 25 minutes to complete, they fall a bit short.
But, let’s face it, how many of us are actually getting 30+ minutes of exercise on a regular basis anyway?
Perhaps a system like this, encouraging fast, intense training, will mean that you actually get some exercise squeezed into your day, rather than feeling so paralysed you do nothing at all.
My feeling is if exercise is new to you, by starting with around 25 minutes of exercise, and including some lighter activities on your “off” days, you’ll be doing a pretty good job. And, you can always add to it at a later date.
The Fat Burning Furnace Book — What to Expect
If you’re looking for that secret formula, to magically melt away the pounds, you won’t find it here.
Weight loss does take time and commitment, and this book provides some very useful guidelines to set you on the right track.
If you’d like to start working out at the gym, but don’t have a clue which equipment to use and how, this is a great product to have on hand.
If you’re a gym user already, but you haven’t tried a more intense approach, this is also a great system to try for accelerated weight loss.
Overall, I think the Fat Burning Furnace is pretty solid. It certainly isn’t a scam or gimmick, despite the title. Do be prepared for consistent effort, though — I think that makes it more legitimate anyway.
One of the most important aspects in this book is that it encourages you to get off the couch and start moving more. That’s got to be a big plus!
