The Fat Loss Handbook (2012)
Theo completed his first book in April of 2012, titled The Fat Loss Handbook: A Highly Effective, Flexible Method of Reliable Fat Loss. This book was available in paperback and ebook formats (Kindle & PDF) and detailed the theory and practice behind weight loss in the absence of muscle loss. This book covered the need for flexibility in weight loss programmes, short and long term strategies, goal setting and several advanced strategies used by athletes and physique competitors to attain low levels of body fat. In addition to nutrition, this book included recommendations for resistance training, cardiovascular training and supplementation to aid muscle retention and fat loss.
