Publisher's Summary

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; he had to 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 insights of his yearlong journey. With startlingly honest stories, concrete easy-to-implement strategies, recipes, exercises, workout routines, meal plans, and much more, listeners will be fully equipped to achieve any weight-loss goal.

It's not as easy as it looks, eh?

The first-person perspective of this book is priceless, and the tips for powering through weight loss without losing your mind (like all battles, weight loss is partly mental) are also quite valuable. Thanks for being the human Guinea pig, Drew.

Very Interesting Listen!

As a big man and chubby chaser myself, I have to admit that it was very interesting to hear Mr. Manning put into words what it felt like to lose the body he worked so hard to maintain and what it felt like to gain weight. As weird as this might sound, I actually enjoyed hearing him talk about his man-boobs. I laughed a little when his wife Lynn spoke about him having a belly that would "make Santa Claus jealous" and hearing about how his "XXL butt" as he put it, ripped a pair of scrubs as he bent over at work one day! Either way, it was a good book and a decent listen and is worth every penny.
