The GNC Holy Grail Body Transformation Review
The Holy Grail Body Transformation program was created and developed by natural body builder, Tom Venuto. Seeing Venuto, posed shirtless on the ad I saw, I knew I wanted to get in shape–hubba hubba 😉
There are 2 primary product benefits of this program:
1. To gain muscle without gaining fat (“lean muscle gain” aka “non-bulking” muscle gains)
2. To gain muscle and lose fat at the same time (aka “body recomposition”).
The information shared is easy to understand and surprisingly detailed and informative. A lot of it may be information that you thought you knew–but there is a lot of in-depth, scientific information that I wager most of us have forgotten 🙂 And the facts are shared in a way that gives new insight into how to apply this knowledge to getting fit. This is no fluff piece–the version I have (I say this because there are continual updates) is 341 pages long! Here is the table of contents for the Holy Grail Body Transformation:
Chapter 1: Goal setting: How to set powerful, compelling goals that will propel you forward and charge you up with unstoppable motivation

My experience and thoughts on The Holy Grail Body Transformation
I like this program. I mostly used it, however, for the diet/nutrition information as I am someone who likes to change up my exercise routine a lot. I loved that carbs are “allowed,” and that you get to eat often. I also like that he addressed the mental aspects of adopting a new approach. He evens suggests using affirmations, which, you know, of course, I think are quite useful! I was not a big fan of the strength portion of the exercise routine–but not because it’s not sound. I just don’t enjoy weight-lifting 😛 I did lose weight and firm up when I followed the eating plan.
Bottom line: I think that The Holy Grail Body Transformation Program is one of the best, if not the best program out there. It is complete and well-documented and time-tested. And seriously–did you see the shirtless Tom Venuto?! He’s living proof!
