    Best Books for Fat Loss?


    Hi Everyone,

    I'm curious as to opinions for which are the best books for fat loss. I regret to say that I am ecto/endomorphic. So, I can gain weight easily (especially when I was prescribed testosterone); but, it's mostly fat gains and hard to come off.

    I know there are many popular books, I wonder what your thoughts are to which one is the best:

    - Tom Venuto's Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle
    - Better than Steroids
    - Will Brink's Fat Loss Revealed
    - Lyle McDonald's Ultimate Diet 2.0

    (I'm sure the list goes on and on).

    Which one is the best and why?

    I read this forum, and the articles posted daily, every day for at least an hour. But I'm sure there's a lot of really good books on the subject.

    Girth Control by Alan Aragon is another book to check out on top of the ones you have listed. I haven't read any of the books you have listed however, as I mostly read on the internet now. Saying all that I have read a lot of what Lyle McDonald has on his website and enjoy it.
