I can't imagine being fit your whole lifestyle from and deciding to gain an excess of weight. In my opinion only a person who truly wants to change lives would take such drastic measures.

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.

Loved it!! Drew Manning speaks so much sense, enjoyed every minute. Definitely will be recommending.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
If you are currently trying to diet or interested in diet/eating habits then it's an interesting story, if you aren't then it'd probably bore you to tears!
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Drew Manning is excellent at what he does i.e. training but he is an awful narrator (even though he's telling his own story!!). From the start the narration is littered with awkward pauses and errors with inflection and emphasis. His delivery is stilted and quite excruciating to listen to. It's a shame as I was interested in the story but it was a case of enduring the narration to get through it rather than the narration adding to the story.
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Yes. I was hoping that there would be much more detail and relatable stuff in the part of the book that covered his journey from being fat to fit again. I was looking for a book that could be my companion on my weight loss journey, because I don't seem to get results in the short term and I find it hard to stay motivated if I'm not getting results after about a month. Unfortunately he really glossed over what it took to get back into shape. Apart from a couple of mentions on how he was humiliated by having to do push ups on his knees (which is all I can do on my best day) it seemed like he just easily slipped back into his old perfect fitness and diet habits.
Did Fit2Fat2Fit inspire you to do anything?
To not look to people who have been super fit their whole lives to find someone I can relate to on my fitness journey.
Any additional comments?
He was a good narrator.
