FBF Overview

The Fat Burning Furnace diet is a 161 page eBook created by Rob Poulos that started in 2006. Rob is a former overweight person who developed the strategies to lose weight offered in his eBook while trying to lose weight himself. According to Rob, much of the information currently available on weight loss and exercise is deceptive. Instead, his eBook offers easy to follow advice on turning your body into an efficient fat burning system, thereby making you lose unwanted fat and build muscle much faster than you would on other methods.

Fat Burning Furnace Pros and Cons


  • You get immediate access to the PDF eBook via download once you place an order.
  • The Fat Burning Furnace includes vegetarian meal options.
  • Program comes with email coaching.
  • Supplements and meal replacements are not recommended, instead dieters learn how to lose weight by consuming real food.
  • The Fat Burning Furnace includes specific advice for those who have been living a sedentary lifestyle; this group of people often has the most trouble with exercising and changing their eating habits.
  • The program is pretty simple to follow and can fit into a busy schedule. It is also designed for both men and women.
  • Customer feedback is high.
  • The eBook costs around $40 and comes with a 60 day refund policy if the product does not meet your expectations.


  • The diet makes the ultimate claim that in 7 weeks you can lose up to 26 pounds of weight. However, dietician recommendations are that dieters should lose no more than 1 to 2 pounds a week.
  • Only 15 minutes of exercise for 2 to 3 times a week is recommended. Most experts recommend exercise for 30 minutes to one hour for 3 to 5 times a week at minimum.

How Does Fat Burning Furnace Really Work?

The eBook contains over 100 pages of information on losing weight the right way. Several free bonuses are also provided. With the Fat Burning Furnace, dieters are taught to do high intensity resistance training for a 15 minute period to lose weight. They are also taught to eat satisfying food items that keep them from getting hungry. Instead of burning fat, the program focuses on burning carbohydrates, thereby encouraging your body to naturally burn stored fat to replace the carbohydrates lost. Step-by-step guidance teaches you how to maximize your results in the smallest amount of time.

Dietitian's Notes

Dietitian ReviewedMy initial thought was the program was “too good to be true”.  It was a shock to read the program guarantees to help people lose 26 pounds in 49 days.  There is no possible way someone can make that type of guarantee and honor it.  This is another diet that works only because of calorie restrictions and exercise, rather than some secret weight loss discovery.

I disagree with the FBF’s take on the “conspiracy” that the diet industry is trying to keep people over weight.  Eating too much and not exercising enough is the real reason obesity exists. Rob’s five "truths" are bizarre as well, ranging from the obvious "boxed food diets are expensive" to the false "cardio exercise is the worst way to lose weight".


Although one of our cons about this diet is that it requires a home gym or access to a gym in order to perform most of the exercises, there are plenty of resistance exercises you can do to get started and work your way up to a "gym membership".

Fat Burning Furnace Implements 3 Principles to maximize fitness results.

Principal 1 - Intensity
Principal 2 - Volume and Frequency
Principal 3 - Progression

For those that have access to equipment here is a short list of exercises you can expect: Squats, Bent Over Rows, Pull ups, Overhead press, Dips, Shoulder Shrugs, Bent Arm Flies, Tricep pull down, and MUCH MUCH more... The ebook goes into detail on how to do these exercise properly.

The idea is to do high intensity workouts no more than 2 to 3 times per week to allow your body time to recover. For those without gym equipment, there are several recommendations on what exercises you can do from home without equipment on page 92.

Eating and Meal Plans

FBF has over 50 pages dedicated to eating, planning, and understanding what foods will give you the best results. They provide you with recipe ideas, a meal guide, how to create quick snacks, how to enjoy alcohol and treats in moderation, and more. Below is a sample meal plan from page 132 of the ebook.

Rob PoulosEven though the diet makes exaggerated claims, it is not a scam or gimmick, nor does it have any snopes associated with it. The Fat Burning Furnace diet does contain some legitimate information that almost anyone can use such as: restrictions in eating tend to be hard to follow, fad diets are a joke and that most people who follow these methods end up regaining all the weight they lose. It also gives equal attention to exercising and eating real foods to lose weight. Sample meal plans, free recipes online and diet progress trackers that can be printed are also effective weight loss tools. Truth is, although the Fat Burning Furnace may contain some unconventional methods to losing weight the information is pretty solid and most importantly will get you off the couch and making real lifestyle changes.

He babbled on and on and on in a presentation that was repetitive and redundant I told myself I was going to sit through the presentation but couldn't. Some one that can talk about nothing for so long with the intent to sell you something must be lying...

One of the worst presentations ever---What kind of time do they think we have??? I finally gave up listening. Who knows what this thing is! Way too long without going anywhere. He needs serious presentation coaching---way too self-indulgent with fluff.

Rob's presentation was too long, too boring, and not very informative. I was tempted to buy, but thought twice about it. I Googled "Fat Burning Furnace" and found out a lot of useful info. It's not a "scam" per se, but all it is is a gussied-up version of the tried and true plan of quality exercise and better nutrition. I read the return policy as I was deciding whether or not to buy, and it said that buyers could get a refund "at the sellers discretion", or "if the request is deemed valid". That's a bit too uncertain for me. Even if they say "full refund within 60 days, no questions asked", we all know that still doesn't assure us of a prompt and full refund. While FBF is not a full-blown scam, I would call it a mini-scam. Rob and his wife are just trying to put lipstick on a pig. When the lipstick wears off, you are left with the same old pig.

OMG, dont knock it till u try it. everyone is ranting about nonsense here. what does the presentation have to do with it. if u really want to lose weight, ull listen to it, i did! its important to get to know what you are purchasing and thats what it is all about. ive been on fbf for a month now and i couldnt be happier. seriously, the work out plan is amazing in the sense that it is not overwhelming and it is very very effective. you really dont have to spend HOURS in the gym. the trick is to make sure when you do work out you are doing the RIGHT workouts that will help you see results. the eating plan is wonderful because it is doable. ive done a couple of other work out programs and this is the one i see myself sticking to because it can be incorporated into my life, even when it is busy. pelase try it, but if you do not want to. find something that works for you!! good luck...

Nothing new here... started searching on FBS 1/2 way through the rambling presentation and found this site as well as others. Think you'd be better off with sensible exercise(walking, light weights) and consulting with a nutritionist(often free).

is the same as the others

@Dawn - Hi Dawn. Thanks for your comments. Since you have a good grasp on your nutrition the only thing you need to focus on next is doing some form of physical exercise. The FBF does have a section on exercise but you might be better served getting a book that is dedicated to exercise ideas and recommendations. If you are looking for an e-book you should check out the Truth About Abs review. The exercises plans are very intense and should show some great results with your good eating habits. Or just got to your local bookstore (Books-a-million, Borders, etc.) and grab a quick $10.00 - $15.00 book with fun exercise ideas. Either way, you are half way there. Keep up the good work!

I wanted to hear from someone who has done this. Have they been able to keep off the weight? I am a vegetarian (95% or so) and have been eating healthier for about 2 years or so. Still a bit flabby due to past eating habits, kids and just plain laziness. I eat well now, drink mostly water and get lots of nutrient rich,calorie dense foods into myself daily, so it's not like I have to "learn to eat all over again" like some diets, after you go off of it. Plus, I'm confused at what you actually GET with this plan. I'm a wellness coordinator, so I'm quite versed in nutrition, just need to lose a bit and tone. I agree with not taking supplements and eating a lot of meat. Would this be a good idea for me? Anyone who is NOT paid by these folks to answer, would be great!

I'd first like to say, WOW! So much negative feedback, and mostly from people who either didn't try it or had a failed attempt somewhere along the way. Is the presentation ongoing and redundant, sure. Is the guy trying to make some money, yah! This IS America, land of greed! However, from the little I read about it, he did do some research and has a method that will most likely work for some people. The people who it will work for know who they are. Not everything works for everyone. Every body has its own quirks and pathologies. Every person has their own mental inflictions. Not any one method will be solid for everyone, however, the basics will outlast other fads we see these days. Learn a little about the way the human body works and about nutrition and you should be able to draw your own conclusions about what you need to change in your life. For some, that knowledge will come from this e-book, for others, it will come little by little in other places and for even other people, it will come from trial and error. Read this book: Diet & Nutrition. A Holistic Approach by Rudolph Ballentine, MD. This book is over 30 years old but has such a wealth of knowledge contained within its pages and is stated very basically. And when you're trying to change yourself, on any level, remember, it starts with the mental desire and strength to do so. It follows with the knowledge and proceeds to the motivation and ability. Think "simplicity". Think "basic". When we go back to the basics, we realize how far from "convenient" our conveniences have become. Balanced whole foods+balanced moderate exercise=health which=happiness & beauty. Inside and out.

In Rob's presentation he was saying how companies see us as a number with a dollar sign attached to it..... aren't you doing the same...you claim you have found a way to lose weight yet you are charging for the instructions... doesn't that make you one of them? A company that thinks of us as a number with a dollar sign attached to it? And where are the results of how long it took people to lose the fat, and how long did they they keep it off after they lost it? After stopping the program?

Presentation offensive. Would never buy without a real 3rd party review.
Posted On:May 16, 2010, 8:57 pm
If that guy writes anything like he talks, there will be about three pages of info in that 188 page book. What a horrible presentation.
Posted On:May 14, 2010, 10:52 pm
Did not try product, I could not sit through the very long and boring infomercial. If a product speaks for itself you should not be subjected to endless chatter of trying to talk you into it. Just state the facts and move on.
Posted On:May 13, 2010, 9:41 am
To Tim, this is nothing like the P90x program of which I am a graduate of. I stopped doing it after my 90 days due to an injury and am just now trying to get back into it. With P90X you are spending at least 1-1 1/2 hours a day exercising. This claims to take that time down to 45 minutes a week!I haven't tried it yet, but if it gets me the same results with the huge difference in time, I'm sold!! P90X works, but I just don't have that kind of time any more.
Posted On:May 11, 2010, 8:10 am
Not sure I am sold on this. No one seems to be posting their "inches lost" and if they have kept it off. Also I am not sure about the exercises. How rigorous are they. I have a bad back and knee.
Posted On:May 8, 2010, 5:02 pm
There are some serious haters in here. I can't believe that most of the negative feedback is from people that couldn't figure out how to download an ebook? I think the program was a little bit over priced but the information was solid, the recipes and meal plans were good, and the exercise recommendations were also good. People need to stop ordering stuff online if they don't know how the process works! -manny

I would love to review the product but unfortunately the product never arrived after paying ClickBank nearly $80 in January 2010. Will ClickBank refund the money if this is a SCAM I doubt it!!!
Posted On:May 4, 2010, 7:32 pm
That was the most annoying presentation I have ever had to displeasure of clicking on, I just kept thinking get to the meat of what you are going to offer me for my money already. The offered nothing without pay! I didn't bite.

Read Dr. Diana Schwarzbein's books on the Schwartzbein Principle. Borrow from your library for free. FBF sounds like it's based on the science that she uses as the basis for her work. These ideas appear in others' writings, too, but Dr. Schwarzbein's books are among my favorites.
