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.

    " Interesting perspective. The author went out of his way to see beyond his own jock mentality, to experience first-hand how it feels to be in the skin of the not-so-athletic. From a writerly perspective, Fit2Fat2Fit is a deplorably Sophomoric read at best. But! I still recommend to read due to the author's honest attempt to understand and to come up with a very possibly livable solution to the extremely unathletic. "

    " I borrowed this one form my roommate; his nephew I think he said is the author. After skimming a few reviews on the book, I wasn't expecting a lot from it and I didn't get much out of it after reading it. The whole book could have been summarized by saying "This is harder than I thought it would be." It wasn't terribly insightful, though the recipes may prove helpful to some if they're looking to add some healthier option in their diet, though I did find the dietary suggestions given in the back half of the book rather limited. I'd glad I didn't buy the book and borrowed it instead. It would have become a library donation. "

    " Apparently this book (and author) made quite a sensation back when he was doing the fit2fat2fit thing. When I heard about it I thought the idea was intriguing. Maybe a bit gimmicky but also interesting. The book was good. Much of it seemed to be the standard personal-trainer-motivational stuff (kinda like biggest loser in a book) but then other parts were more interesting. I'm not sure I could ever live my life using the author's meal plan. I have no doubt that it's healthy but it's also very impractical. I just like "normal" food and I don't believe that normal food has to be unhealthy. Despite that, I still enjoyed the book and learned quite a bit from it. "

    " The personal aspects of this book revere interesting, but it ended up reading like a typical diet book with a clever back story. Who needs another one, right? "
