Product Reviewed: The Fat Burning Furnace by Rob Poulous
The Fat Burning Furnace System by Rob Poulos is based on the idea that you can kick your metabolism into overdrive by eating the right foods and doing the right exercises.
With the help of this Fat Burning Furnace review, you’ll have all the information you need to decide if this is the right system for you. Let’s get started!
Fat Burning Furnace Review – The Good
Pro: Detailed weight loss program that makes sense.
Poulos takes an in-depth common sense approach to losing weight. The Fat Burning Furnace System offers workouts for every fitness level. If you haven’t exercised in years, you can start with the break-in exercise routine and work your way up to the advanced routine as you get in better shape.
The system is rooted soundly in science. If you gain more muscle and lose fat, you will increase your resting metabolic rate (RMR) because muscle tissue burns more calories than fat tissue. By gaining muscle, you can turn your body into a metabolic furnace.
Pro: Workouts are short, but effective.
For those who don’t relish the thought of working out for hours on end, Fat Burning Furnace has an attractive approach to exercise: Do simple strength training 20 minutes a day, 3 or 4 times a week.
Only one set of each exercise is required, but the exercises are done at a very slow pace to give muscles an extra-effective workout. There are workouts for every muscle group, so you will work your whole body using this system.
One thing the Fat Burning Furnace System is missing is long, boring cardio sessions. Poulos maintains that his short strength-training routines give you a better cardio workout than an hour spent on a treadmill.
Pro: You can purchase upgrades.
The Fat Burning Furnace System comes in Deluxe, Ultimate, and Blowtorch levels. The Ultimate level seems to be the best deal of the three, but the Blowtorch upgrade features two hours of videos of Poulos going through the exercise routines. Beginners should work their way up through the basic, intermediate, and advanced workouts before attempting the Blowtorch-level routines.
Fat Burning Furnace Review – The Bad
Con: Not much emphasis on nutrition.
This is primarily an exercise program. Poulos does a good job of explaining the principles of nutrition, but he does not spend a lot of time telling you what to eat. Compared to the exceptionally detailed exercise guides, the nutrition program leaves the reader a lot of choice – which can be good or bad depending on your eating habits. Be prepared to receive nutritional guidelines and a few sample meals, plus links to recipes you can make for yourself.
Con: Sales pressure can get tiresome.
This Fat Burning Furnace review wouldn’t be complete without a quick caveat: Poulos spends the first 24 pages of the book trying to sell you on his logic and ideas. That’s not so bad, but there are also numerous attempts to push ProGrade food products. If you can look past this, the program is great.
Fat Burning Furnace Review – The Bottom Line
Poulos does a good job of going into detail about how nutrition and exercise affect your body. He doesn’t care for fad diets, and he lays many nutritional myths to rest with his sensible explanations. This program is excellent for people who have damaged their metabolism through years of yo-yo dieting, no matter their current fitness level.
