The program is designed to help us improve our current diet and make us aware of the different types of foods and available. In doing so, we are able to improve our diets.
Things You Get in the Package
Before we are able to make the right choices and design meal plans, we’ll need to understand the different types of foods. The Truth About Fat Burning Foods does just that. It is a series of ebooks that you come in PDF format which you can digitally download.
The series covers the different food categories beginning from proteins, carbs and fats which make up the 3 main sources of energy our bodies use. It also educates us about drinks, snacks and supplements. One of the books also introduces us to what Nick Pineault refers to as superfoods, because of their healthy makeup and benefits they provide to our bodies.
1. Fat Burning Foods

By doing so, you’ll be able to not only eat healthier but also burn fat better. The book is an easy read and makes you consciously think about your food choices and not just go for the best looking package or what’s said in commercials.
2. Protein, Fat & Carbs
This book talks about the three main food categories, protein, carbs and fats. If you’re trying to lose weight and burn fat, proteins are your main source of energy. The author lists the primary sources of protein that are available for meat eaters as well as vegetarians.
When it comes to carbs, limiting them is important in order to lose weight. Just as important is understanding the different types of carbohydrates that are available, which ones are healthy and which ones to stay away from.
With fats, you also want to distinguish the good from the bad. When trying to lose weight you’ll need to incorporate some fat into your diet too. You’ll learn how much and which types of fat work best here.
3. Condiments, Snacks & Seasonings
For the most part, restaurant or commercially prepared snacks, condiments and seasonings aren’t good for you. They’re probably one of the biggest things holding you back from losing weight from your current diet. Remember eating that healthy salad for lunch? What you may have overlooked is that it came with heavy dressing, and that the dressing can have more fat and calories than a regular meal.
By staying away from pre-made snacks, seasonings and condiments we’ll be able to improve our eating habits.

Our Review of the Program
What We’re Not Fans of
Nick Pineault questions the credibility of certified nutritionists. While this may be true in some cases where you have nutritionists who aren’t qualified. I’ve met and consulted with a number of them and so far haven’t met one that didn’t know their stuff. Just like a doctor, making sure you go to a reputable one leaves you in good hands.
There are a lot of books and information. This is also a good point below. On the negative end however, having so many pages and books often can leave them unread by the reader.
What We Like
The program thoroughly covers the different aspects of eating, food and diet. Each of the books are full of information and well researched. The author not only states his case but also provides depth in his discussions. An added plus is that the books are well written and very easy to read.
In each of the books and food categories, the facts and researched data is presented. Then actionable modifications and suggestions are provided. This lets you act on what you’ve learned making it very practical.
The program covers all the bases. Often you’d find someone just covering a portion since there are so many food groups and types. The program goes through the different groups, even including drinks, supplements and other types giving complete coverage.
The Truth About Fat Burning Foods program offers thorough coverage of the different types of foods available to us. It offers a lot of information we were not aware of and changes we can implement to improve our diet to help us burn fat as well as get healthier.
As great as the information provided in the program is, the work is still up to you. You need to use it and apply the changes to your daily eating habits for any of it to work.
