OK. Before you read this review, please let me make it clear to you that I am a huge Vince Gironda fan.
So there will be some bias in this analysis of Vince Gironda: Legend and Myth.
That said, I will try to genuinely give you a fair review of this e-book.
So let’s get down to brass tacks – what is this book actually about?
Here at Muscle Old School we treat the “strength and health equation” as fifty-fifty partners in a strong and enduring relationship that will not only make us physically mightier but also longer living as well.
What is the use of being able to do a 500lb+ deadlift if we are going to have a heart attack while doing it?
Nutrition is the cornerstone in any good weight training program – yes, I’m talking to you heavyweight powerlifters out there as well.
“How many calories do I burn in a day?” If you are looking at altering body composition – whether you are looking at putting on muscle mass or a looking to burn body fat, this is a key question you should be asking yourself.
Your basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the amount of energy you expend in carrying out your everyday basic bodily functions. The expenditure of energy in this situation is only the amount required for physical survival through the continuing function of your vital organs.

Most fitness conscious people have heard that there are 3,500 calories in a pound of fat, so if you create a deficit of 3500 calories in a week, you lose a pound of weight. If you create a deficit of 7000 calories in a week, you lose two pounds, and so on. Right? Well, not so fast…
Dr. Kevin Hall, an investigator at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda has done some interesting research about the mechanisms regulating human body weight. He recently published a new paper in the International Journal of Obesity that throws a wrench in works of the “3500 calories to lose a pound” idea.
It seems ever since I have been scouring the internet for nutritional advice, Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle, has been there. In fact, when it was released in 2003 it was one of the first diet and nutrition e-books ever published. Now there is such a plethora of e-books, supplements and weight loss programs online that it is easy to get lost in all the information on offer.
A lot of them promise all-to-easy solutions. Just "take the pill" or the take the "all-to-easy" advice and your body fat problems will just melt away. Clever copywriting pulls on your emotional heartstrings and you buy a product that nine times out of ten will not work.
