Drew Manning, a natural fitness junkie and devoted personal
trainer, had never been overweight in his life. He never
craved junk food or missed an opportunity to work out. Yet
despite his obsession with fitness, he failed to help his
clients reach their goals. Something had to give. Manning
needed to understand what it was like to be on the other
side—spend a few months in his clients' shoes or, rather, size.
For six months, Manning radically let himself go. He stopped
exercising and ate nothing but the typical American diet of
fast and processed foods. Not surprisingly, he started to
gain weight. Manning made national news when he posted a
blog revealing that he had gained more than 60 pounds (he
ended up gaining 75). In only half a year, the out-of-shape
trainer-turned-blogger had gained more than he ever
expected—and not just in pounds.
Manning devoted the next six months to losing the weight as
quickly as he had gained it. The lessons he learned were
priceless, as he had now experienced both sides of the
weight-loss battle. What started as a physical challenge
became an emotional and mental wake-up call. In Fit2Fat2Fit,
Manning reveals the practical takeaways and profound in-
sights of his yearlong journey. With startlingly honest
stories, concrete easy-to-implement strategies, recipes,
exercises, workout routines, meal plans, and much more, the
reader is fully equipped to achieve any weight-loss goal.
