In the next few minutes, I'm going to give you a crucial advantage over 99% of other dieters and muscle-seekers. Some might even say this is an "unfair advantage" because so few people know about it.
The problem is, almost all dieters and fat loss seekers are perpetually frustrated because they burn off precious muscle when they lose fat.
Athletes and bodybuilders get equally flustered about gaining too much fat when they gain muscle.
You're about to gain access to insider information that has been allowing a small group of men and women "in the know" to gain muscle without adding an ounce of fat... to lose fat without losing muscle and even...
... The 'Holy Grail' of Body Transformation: Gaining Muscle And Losing Fat At The Same Time!
Tom Venuto, Best-Selling Author And Body Transformation Expert
" I used The Holy Grail system this summer to trim fat while holding onto muscle. I managed to go from “lean” to “ripped”. Using the strategies detailed in THG I cut from 10% to less than 5% body fat! Now I am using THG to add even more muscle without getting fat. This program works."
"In the last 98 days I have: burned 12% body fat, shed 25 pounds of fat, shrunk my waist by 19 cm and gained 5 pounds of muscle. The Holy Grail WORKS!
"Thanks, Tom! Your last program, Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle (BFFM), led to dramatic improvements for me in the last 5 years and the "Holy Grail" you are launching now seems to be nothing short of revolutionary!"
How Some "Weird" Contest Results Sparked a New Fitness Revolution...
Almost everyone has heard about The Biggest Loser - the weight loss contest on TV where obese people drop ridiculous amounts of body weight - insane amounts like 15 or 20 lbs in a week, and up to 150 or 200 lbs by the time the show is over.
Weight loss contests, especially the Biggest Loser, have become extremely popular and many people say they get incredibly inspired and motivated watching these huge weight losses take place right before their eyes.
I agree whole-heartedly that fitness contests can be a powerful motivational catalyst. But I also believe that there are some fatal flaws in contests that encourage rapid "weight loss." That's why I finally decided to host my own body transformation contest - the "Burn The Fat Body Transformation Challenge"...
And Our Contest Was NOTHING Like The Biggest Loser
Our fitness contest was different because it was a body composition transformation contest - not just a "weight loss" contest.
If you're not hip to what "body composition" means, then the results of our first contest are going to blow your mind: Josh Ketter, the overall men's winner, and Ryan Cochrane, one of the top finalists, only lost one pound.
You might be thinking, "what kind of weird body transformation contest were you running where the winner and the finalists only drop a pound?"
Well, it might seem weird if you thought success at body transformation ONLY meant dropping large amounts of weight on the scale, but...
Josh Ketter lost only one pound of bodyweight in 7 weeks but completely transformed his physique..
What About The Difference
Between Fat Loss and Weight Loss?
What if you gain muscle while losing weight? Think about this: if you gain muscle in a weight loss contest, you get penalized, right? But shouldn't you be REWARDED for gaining muscle as well as burning fat? Wouldn't that be the ultimate prize?
That's the fatal flaw of "weight loss" contests: Most people are obsessed with scale weight but don't pay any attention to their body composition - the all-important fat-to-muscle ratio.
Of course, some of the contestants in our Burn The Fat Challenge Transformation contest DID drop a lot of weight - 14, 19, even 26 lbs in only 7 weeks. But the person who dropped the most pounds was NOT necessarily voted the winner.
Some contestants became winners because they made astonishing improvements in their muscle to fat ratio, even though they didn't lose much weight.
This was an amazing revelation to hundreds of people who entered our competition, and here's why:
For years, most people - even the experts - believed that it was impossible to gain muscle and lose fat simultaneously, so the possibility was ignored and "pursuit of the grail" wasn't even on their radar.
James Bond Eat Your Heart Out... Emerging from the warm Caribbean waters, Josh shows off his new muscle and 6-pack abs in Jamaica after winning the Burn The Fat Challenge
They Were All Wrong! Not Only Is It Possible To
Gain Muscle And Lose Fat Simultaneously, You're About To Learn Exactly How It Is Done!
Josh only lost a pound because the solid new muscle weight replaced the fat weight. As you saw in his beach picture above, that left him with a lean, muscular and head-turning body...
And Josh isn't the only person to achieve an impressive body composition transformation.
In the before and after photos to the right - snapped just 7 weeks apart - take a look at how Ryan stripped off 8 pounds of fat and replaced almost all of it with solid muscle.
The increase in muscle size and fullness is striking... but the scale hardly changed at all!
If Ryan had only been thinking about "weight loss" rather than body composition transformation, he never would have enjoyed these eye-popping results.
Best part: this "body composition transformation" system works wonders for women too!
Ryan Cochrane lost 8 pounds of fat while gaining 7.7 lbs
of muscle in 50 days. His weight hardly changed.
How Gaining Muscle While Losing Fat Helps Women Get Fit, Sexy and Bikini-Ready...
Not only does this body transformation system work for women too, replacing fat with muscle is EXACTLY what most women need, but aren't getting, because most women are worried about getting "bulky."
Women who don't train for more muscle are making a BIG mistake! If you strip off fat AT THE SAME TIME as you put on lean muscle, you don't get bulky - you get strong and sexy!
Let me prove it with some before and after photos of our female Burn The Fat Challenge finalists who stripped off fat, and by adding a little bit of muscle in just the right places, sculpted beautifully toned, sexy bodies.
Take a look at Danielle's transformation...
She cut almost 10 pounds of fat while gaining a pound of muscle. And remember, this was achieved in just 50 days.
Even more impressive, Danielle was working up to 12 hours a day with a long commute and shift work. With that kind of stress, most people have plenty of excuses to blow off working out and eating healthy.
When the Burn The Fat Challenge contest was issued, she jumped at the opportunity to transform herself and in just 7 weeks, made a remarkable shift from fat to muscle.
Danielle cut 9.6 lbs of fat while gaining a pound of muscle!
The Myth About Women And Gaining Muscle
Danielle's results show that women can quickly add lean muscle while losing fat, and that adding muscle in the right places makes women look leaner, sexier and more feminine! The idea that women who gain muscle will look bulky or masculine is completely false (except for women who take anabolic steroid drugs, and I would NEVER recommend that!)
Of course, Danielle only gained a pound of muscle, so you might be wondering, "what if she gained as much muscle as Josh or Ryan? Wouldn't that make a woman look manly?
Glad you asked. Look at Sarah's before and after photos below. This lays to rest that notion that weight training and building lean muscle makes women bulky. Her body transformation pics also reveal why the scale can play tricks on you...
This Is What Adding Lean Muscle Can Do
For The Female Figure!
Sarah's before and after pictures speak for themselves.
Take note especially of the muscle Sarah added to her shoulders and arms. Take a close look at the numbers too:
She actually GAINED a pound of bodyweight according to the scale, increasing from 119 to 120 pounds, BUT her body fat decreased from 19% to a ripped 12.6%.
That's a 7.9 pound GAIN in lean body mass and a 7 pound loss of body fat!
Bulky? Manly? I don't think so!
Sarah gained 7.9 pounds of muscle and lost 7 pounds of fat in 50 days. These results are not typical, but they do show what is possible
3 Things You Must Know To Make
Body Transformations Like These
My fat burning programs have helped dozens of men and women lose over 100 pounds, and up to as much as 256 pounds. Why then, did I show you the success stories above instead of 100+ pound massive weight loss stories?
There are 3 major reasons:
1. I wanted you to see real-world proof that it IS possible to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time...
2. I wanted you to realize the difference between weight loss and fat loss...
3. I wanted you to finally give up the notion that weight loss is the only goal that matters
You may have a lot of weight to lose (body fat), but weight loss is not all there is to a body transformation.
Many people are not seriously overweight, but they are seriously unhappy because their body is soft and flabby without tone and firmness. Fat loss with muscle gain is exactly what these people need.
You've probably been told for years that it's impossible to lose fat and gain muscle at the same time, but that's a load of bull! If you couldn't achieve this elusive goal in the past, it's simply because you didn't have the right nutritional strategies.
The best part is, once you understand how to use these techniques for simultaneous fat loss and muscle gain, you can also put them to use if your goal is strictly fat loss. How? By using even one or two of these techniques, you'll be able to hold onto every ounce of your precious muscle tissue when you're dieting.
And if your goal is muscle gain, but you want to avoid gaining "bulk" (adding fat with the muscle), this new approach works brilliantly for gaining pure solid lean muscle, without fat gain.
In summary, when you use my new transformation system, it will allow you to:
Lose fat without losing muscle
Gain muscle without gaining fat
Gain muscle and lose fat at the same time!
Maybe you're thinking, "wait a minute, I thought it was impossible to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time? Don't you need a calorie deficit to burn fat and a calorie surplus to build muscle?"
Well, yes - calories do matter - but it's much more complicated than just calories because of factors such as within-day energy balance, hormonal response and "energy partitioning."
I've been studying these complex interactions of nutrition and training with metabolism and hormones for almost 21 years, but I was just like you - I was equally skeptical that significant concurrent muscle gains and fat losses could be achieved by anyone other than genetic superiors or performance-enhancing drug users.
It was these extraordinary contest results achieved by ordinary people - naturally - that prompted me to search for the common denominators in body composition transformations. I also dug into the scientific literature to create a new program so that you could duplicate these results yourself. The program was named...
"THE HOLY GRAIL BODY TRANSFORMATION SYSTEM"
This is a new type of body transformation system that has just been published for the first time in digital format (e-book and MP3 audio), so you can download the program instantly, read or listen to it in an afternoon and get started the same day.
But before you download the program or even read the rest of this letter, I have to warn you. This not an easy goal to achieve and I have no miracles to offer you inside this new book. This is a serious and very strategic program for committed people who are analytical thinkers and hard workers.
Concurrent muscle gain and fat loss is the most difficult goal to achieve. That's why people call it the "Holy Grail"; because it's so elusive. But...
MAKE NO MISTAKE: IT IS POSSIBLE
TO GAIN MUSCLE AND LOSE FAT AT THE SAME TIME.
My previous best selling ebook, Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle (BFFM) has become known to many as a "fat loss bible." But BFFM was designed specifically for fat loss. What if you want to lose fat AND gain muscle?
That's exactly why I created this new program.
The Holy Grail Body Transformation System is the first course of its kind that builds on the foundational fat-burning principles, adds muscle-building techniques and then puts it all together in a highly strategic system for gaining muscle and burning fat simultaneously, while explaining the process scientifically...
With that, let me give you a closer look at what you'll learn inside the Holy Grail program...
The Holy Grail Body Transformation System Unveiled:
The Holy Grail system is delivered in an instantly-downloadable PDF e-book AND a downloadable MP3 audio edition.
The CORE of this program is a nutrition plan that most people have never seen before, based on cyclical dieting and nutrient timing.
But the Holy Grail program doesn't stop with nutrient timing advice you may have heard before. This goes far beyond post workout nutrition, into the new realm of nutritional periodization.
New discoveries in the emerging sciences of within-day-energy balance, nutrient timing and natural hormonal manipulation have pointed the way to a proven method for achieving simultaneous muscle gain with fat loss...
Mark my words, this is going to become the next big thing - a whole new science of nutrition to achieve a goal that countless experts and trainees had written off as impossible.
Here's a Sample of This New Body Transformation Science That You'll Discover Inside the Holy Grail Body Transformation System e-book:
Why most people - even fitness pros and dieticians - are dead wrong about the biology behind losing fat and gaining muscle at the same time ... and why you MUST understand the true "temporal mechanism" or you'll never have a prayer at deliberately achieving this elusive goal
Why you MUST understand "energy partitioning" - the fat-burning, muscle-building process BEYOND CALORIES-IN vs CALORIES OUT!... this is the key to forcing your body to drive energy and protein INTO MUSCLE CELLS and pull calories OUT OF FAT CELLS!
The power of hormones to dramatically shift fat to muscle... discover what steps you must take to achieve hormonal control for maximum muscle growth and fat loss... this is MUST-HAVE information because if your hormones are out of whack, the game is over
The 4 "X Factors" of concurrent muscle gain and fat loss - these are the special conditions that allow above average muscle gains while losing fat at the same time... and there's good news and bad news about the X Factors that you need to know before you get started
The 5 "X2 Factors" that influence your ability to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time... They all depend on your current body composition (lean or fat) and dieting status (dieted down or not dieted down)... Depending on which category you're in, it can totally change your approach
Why you almost never gain muscle in a continuous calorie deficit... and the one exception that allowed a group of overweight women to gain muscle and lose fat while eating 800 calories a day (I don't recommend this, but the lessons from this case study are valuable)
How to choose the right body transformation goal: should you focus on burning fat, gaining muscle or doing both at the same time? If you pursue the wrong goal, you'll be wasting time and you might even get fatter
How to "steal" the proven system of training periodization from world class athletes and apply it to your own muscle-building and fat-burning goals... Plus, how nutritional periodization might be the single biggest breakthrough for building muscle and burning fat at the same time
5 post-workout nutrition strategies to improve muscle growth and optimize recovery from your workouts... Forget fancy post workout nutrition calculations or expensive supplements - these tips are so easy to apply, you'll kick yourself for ever thinking this was complicated
Carb tapering and carb targeting strategies for the new decade... These are the latest updates to the time-tested techniques used by some of the best bodybuilders, fitness models and figure competitors in the world
Cycle dieting techniques under the microscope... find out which methods work and which ones will actually make you fatter
The 5-point weight training optimization checklist: Compare your workout to these MUST-HAVE conditions for gaining muscle while stripping fat... see what's missing, plug the holes, and watch your results explode!
4 reasons why cardio can help you gain more muscle, if you do it right... and why you will get weaker and smaller if you do it wrong
The 8-point cardio power plan: follow these 8 guidelines and you can't go wrong with your cardio program
8 carb-cycling menu plans ... all DONE FOR YOU, laid out meal by meal, calculated for precision and results (appendix 1)

Your Quest For Bodily Perfection Just Got Easier...
The Straight and Fast Path Shortcut To a Leaner AND More Muscular Body Is Now Just a Click Away!
Losing fat is a frustrating challenge for millions of overweight people. Building muscle is downright HARD to do as well, and thousands of bodybuilders and athletes struggle for years to make gains. Doing BOTH at the same time is near impossible unless you know EXACTLY what you're doing.
The HOLY GRAIL is the type of strategic program that you NEVER discover casually on your own. It's the result of meticulous scientific investigation combined with years of experimentation, testing and tweaking. If you get lucky and "accidentally" gain muscle while losing fat, you'll have no clue how you did it, which means you won't be able to do it again and you won't be able to explain how you did it to others.
If you want the shortest, fastest, straightest path to muscle building and fat burning success, you need a guide...a plan, a roadmap... and the Holy Grail e-book is it.
If you're serious about physique transformation, then grabbing a copy of The Holy Grail Body Transformation system is a no brainer decision. And to sweeten the deal, I've built two fantastic bonuses right into the Holy Grail program manual:

In the past, you may have had doubts like I did. You may have seen "experts" sneer and insist that achieving this goal is impossible. You might have heard this subject debated ad nauseam on discussion forums. These conflicting opinions may have left you confused and not sure what to believe either.
I admit it. Even I was skeptical about this at first. I almost didn't believe it when I saw the results of our body transformation contestants. I thought maybe they made a mistake in body fat testing...but when I started seeing more and more men and women start doing it for themselves, the undeniable evidence made me a believer.
The Holy Grail Body Transformation Program sets the record straight. It's literally the gospel on gaining muscle and burning fat at the same time; it's impressively referenced with peer-reviewed research showing exactly how it works, and frankly, when you see how I explain it, you'll be nodding your head in agreement that it just plain makes sense.

On the other hand, if...
The Holy Grail Body Transformation Program helps you get leaner AND gain muscle at the same time , or helps you stay leaner than ever before while you gain muscle, then I want you to e-mail me your success story or testimonial to tell me about the results you achieved - and tell all your friends about it too.
The program is guaranteed and you WILL see a profound difference in your body in as little as 7-8 weeks if you follow the instructions. But remember, this program is not for everyone.
This is a very strategic system, not a program you approach casually or follow half-way. If you're not serious about your body transformation goals, this is not the program for you...
If, on the other hand, you are serious, and if you follow this plan to the letter, the results are going to blow you away! You'll achieve the type of fat-to-muscle transformation that many people think is impossible... and as Walt Disney once said, "it's kind of fun to do the impossible."

Holy Grail Body Transformation Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Can I use the Holy Grail program if I have a lot of weight to lose? I'm a 37-year old male, 210 pounds. I just had my body fat tested and it's 24%. My goal is lose about 30 pounds and it would be great if I could gain some muscle at the same time.
If you'e overweight or you have high body fat, the Holy grail program is NOT for you. Wait until you get a little bit leaner. Suggestions: Men, get your body fat at least down to the "semi-lean" range (15-19%) and women at least 21-25% body fat before starting the Holy Grail program. For fat loss I recommend a focused fat loss program such as Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle.
Question: What is the overall goal of the the Holy Grail Body Transformation program?
There are two goals you can achieve with the Holy Grail: (1) Gain muscle without gaining fat, or (2) Gain muscle and lose fat at the same time. The Holy Grail is a new and better alternative to the old school "bulking" method which causes you to gain too much fat when you gain muscle.
Question: What makes it possible to put on lean muscle while losing fat at the same time, given the fact that this is generally regarded as very difficult to do?
You will be shifting in and out of calorie surpluses and deficits in strategic cycles. During the surplus periods, you gain muscle. During the deficit periods you lose fat. You also eat more at specific times around workouts which has a very anabolic effect. The program also optimizes your hormones and improves nutrient partitioning which means you push surplus calories into muscle and pull the deficit calories out of fat.
Question: Is this program really suitable for women?
Absolutely! In fact, the Holy Grail is popular with women because it doesn't use the old-school "bulking" method of muscle gain. Some men are okay with gaining a little fat along with the muscle, but most women don't want to gain ANY fat. The Holy grail helps women who want to develop lean muscle without bulk.
Question: Do we learn with the holy grail how to get a "Brad Pitt Style" body? I want to gain muscle but I prefer a slim look over a bodybuilder look so I can buy normal looking clothes
Bodybuilders do use this program, but a Brad Pitt in Fight Club or Troy (the movie) physique is a lot closer to what the average guy wants. Since the Holy grail program does use the bulking method, you gain only lean body mass and you only gain the amount you want. This way, you look good all year round, you look good out of clothes, and look great in nice-fitting clothes too.
Question: What is the difference between your two books and which one should I get Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle (BFFM)? The Holy Grail? (YES - I want to gain muscle and lose fat).
The big diference is that my earlier book, Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle (BFFM) is a fat loss program, NOT a muscle building program. The Holy Grail program assumes that one of your goals is to gain lean muscle. If your only goal is fat loss or if you have a lot of fat to lose, BFFM is the better program to start with. You can learn more about Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle by watching the Burn the Fat video presentation
Question: Will the Holy Grail Body Transformation Program work for a vegetarian?
Vegetarians can get plenty of complete protein from using dairy products or eggs daily (fish too, if you eat it). You can also mix and match your plant-based proteins to obtain the full spectrum of amino acids every day. However, if youre a strict vegan, you would have to come up with your own meal plans based on what you do and don't eat as the Holy Grail program recommends animal-based high-quality proteins and was not designed as a vegan program.
Question: What is minimum amount of training required on this program? I don't have much time to work out, but I'm VERY interested in trying to gain some muscle while losing some fat.
The optimal time committment is about 5 hours per week of training. The minimum is about 3 hours a week. Ideally, I recommend 4 one-hour strength training sessions per week. If you're busy, I teach some tricks for condensing your workouts down to 3 days per week without compromising your results. You can also cut back on the isolation exercises and do only the primary exercises. This could cut your lifting sessions down to about 30 minutes. Cardio is three days a week in most cases for approx 20-30 minutes. If you won't give me 3-5 hours a week, then forget it. This is no quick fix!
Question: Is a gym membership and special equipment required for the Holy Grail program?
It's not mandatory to join a gym, but if you train at home you will need some basic equipment. To follow the program exactly as it's laid out in the manual, you need: dumbbells, barbells, chin up bar, dipping station, cable pulley apparatus, squat rack, swiss ball (optional), adjustable bench, calf machine, back extension machine. If you don't have access to this equipment, you can still do the program, you'll simply need to make substitutions on the exercises.
Question: Is the Holy Grail heavily nutrition-based or is it a fully detailed workout plan for bodybuilding? Can you describe the training plan in general?
This is a nutrition program based on cyclical dieting and nutrient timing. The cardio plan gives specific guidelines on duration, frequency and intensity to lose fat while preserving lean mass. The lifting program ("The New Bodybuilding" aka TNB), is a periodized hypertrophy workout calling for 3-4 workouts per week on a upper/lower+abs split. If you prefer, you can also use any bodybuilding body part split routine you like.
Question: How long does the program last? is this a 7-week program? A 12-week program? And what kind of results could one expect in a specified time frame?
There's no specified time limit. You could use the holy grail techniques as long as needed to reach your goals. We sponsor an annual body transformation contest that runs 49 days and our contestants achieve amazing results in just 7 weeks. If you keep at it longer, your results will continue to accumulate, although muscle growth does get slower as you approch your genetic potential.
Question: Is this program more for beginners or advanced trainees? I've been training for 9 years and pretty much know what I'm doing, but I'm always looking for new ideas.
The Holy grail is not for rank beginners. The nutrition program is actually more complex and sophisticated than anything I've created before. The training program is tailored for intermediate or advanced trainees. However, the training is designed for the average trainee, not professional bodybuilders. Advanced bodybuilders should already have a grasp on post-workout nutrition, nutrient timing, carb cycling, and the periodization concept. If you're well-versed in all these areas, then you'll already know most of the info in the Holy Grail system. If not, then you will find the Holy Grail priceless.
Question: Will I have to use any special protein shakes and/or supplements to see results? Nowadays, it seems that all the fat loss programs say that you have to use protein shakes and supplements.
There are NO supplements required. You can use products like protein powder
or creatine if you choose, and supplements like a basic multi vitamin and essential fats like fish oil can be helpful, but none are mandatory. This program is NOT a promotional tool for supplements. Unlike other muscle gain programs which are just front-end vehicles to get you hooked on pills and powders, I don't sell or even endorse supplements.
