The Fat Burning Furnace program is the creation of Rob and his wife Kalen Poulos. Poulos is a US based fitness expert who writes extensively on health and weight loss topics. His inspiration for the Fat Burning Furnace program was drawn from his early struggles with weight and associated ill health. Having lost some 40+ pounds and corrected life long obesity issues, he and his wife took the techniques contained within “FBF” to personal clients and achieved compelling results. Poulos with his wife Kalen then created and penned the Fat Burning Furnace program.
Fat Burning Furnace Overview ( What’s It All About).
The Fat Burning Furnace System s is a 158 page long , (excluding meal plans and recipes) guide which focuses primarily on fat loss, but also deals with toning up lean muscle and improving overal health and longevity.
The program’s core principle is that fat loss is not engineered by consistently lowering calories. Poulos states the practise of constantly cutting calories typically results in hunger, cravings, a slow down in your metabolic rate and therefore a decrease in calories burnt which leads to dieting plateaus whereby individuals are simply unable to lose any more weight despite cutting calories further.
While calorie control is an element of the program, Fat Burning Furnace takes a different primary direction, using Poulos exercise and nutrition program to increase your RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate) . Poulos provides an extensive set of workout programs which are structured specifically to increase your RMR . The nutrition element is also strategically designed to assist the workouts in increasing RMR.
When your RMR is raised you’re increasing your metabolic rate burning more calories when you’re working out but also, more importantly, burning hundreds more calories during the day, even when sleeping.
The benefit of of increasing your metabolism via a higher RMR means extra calories burnt , more energy , and a fat reduction whilst negating the requirement for individuals to drastically cut calories.
When all the factors come together, there’s a synergistic effect which results in favorable body composition improvements, ie, fat loss and lean muscle tone. RMR based diet plans have a respectable combination of peer reviewed and real world data to support their efficiency.
Fat Burning Furnace Exercise Program.
Poulos doesn’t go near a stationary bike or similar pieces of equipment, if you’re looking for a guide on how to do long cardiovascular workouts , do not buy Fat Burning Furnace, if you’re purely into long cardio sessions for fat loss and enjoy that method, this isn’t a suitable program for you.
The workouts centre around resistance training you do at home with either little equipment or none at all. The workouts are approximately 25-35 minutes long.
The workouts are completed as whole body workout to maximize fat burning effects, but also to increase flexibility , toning and strength. The exercises are completed very slowly to avoid injury and to burn additional calories.
This approach does allow individuals to tone their bodies, and in some scenarios build a little lean muscle. As muscle burns fat, it’s a metabolically active tissue, this allows for additional calorie burning. Lean toned muscle mass is also responsible for the often admired “beach body” look for men and women.
The program contains dozens of photo guides of the workouts and you can upgrade to a video instruction package of the program. There’s a “for seniors” guide and a “beginners” guide to accompany the main product.
The Fat Burning Furnace Diet / Food Choices.
Most programs concentrate on macro-nutrients, (carbs, protein and fat). Poulos however focusses more on micro-nutrients .Micro-nutrients are the vitamins and minerals that our body uses to perform optimally but also to help burn fat naturally.
The focus of the diet section, is to stop concentrating on measuring foods and start focussing purely on choosing foods which are packed with the right nutrients.
By focusing on vitamins and minerals in your diet , by choosing the foods that deliver health benefits to you , not just calories, you end up eating less calories and more nutrient packed foods which fuel your body and make you a more efficient fat burning machine at rest.
This all ties in with the exercise element in FBF which is all about improving your RMR so you’re burning more calories at rest, when you combine the FBF training program and the diet together it’s a solid combination as far as fat loss and energy deficits go. You’re effectively working with your bodies natural ability to shed fat rather than against it by constantly cutting calories which result in an overall metabolic slowdown.
In regards food types, Poulos, is not big at all on the popular high protein diets, the diet recommends a good volume of your dietary protein requirements from vegetables, nuts, pulses grains etc , as again they fit into the criteria of offering a lot of nutrients, minerals, and vitamins etc.
The program details extensively the food choices with menus and recipes, along with lists and tables of suggested foods and alternatives. The program also supplies you with a number of pre made diets and snacks and some of the tricks and techniques he uses in the kitchen to minimise fat gain during cooking and preparation. These sections are all fine, people like easy lists, so it’s a positive he provides them for folk who want everything laid out for them.

Customer Support Rating
We sent in a support ticket on the 1st Feb at 11:04 AM, we received a response on the 1st Feb at 5:42 PM, around 6 hours in total. The response was detailed and courteous. We have had quicker responses from vendors but this is about average and acceptable baring in mind time zone issues etc.
Final Conclusion & Overall Rating.
Fat Burning Furnace contains a cardiovascular program (via resistance) and a pure resistance element for toning and firming along with a straight forward health orientated nutrition program based on consuming nutrient rich food types.

Overall a well put together program with plenty of guidance, solid support and no specific downfall to speak off.
