BACKGROUND

Fit2Fat2Fit is a new book written by Drew Manning and Bradley Ryan Pierce that chronicles Drew’s journey to gain and lose over 70 pounds. As a personal trainer that had never struggled with his weight, Drew set out to do this so that he could empathize with his clients. He wanted to see if having to lose weight would change his viewpoint of those that are in that same position. Before this experiment, Drew had never craved junk food and was obsessed with fitness. Drew’s inability to relate to his clients and help them reach their weight loss goals brought on this monumental weight experiment. For six months, Drew ate plenty of processed and fast food. Over that time period of letting himself go, he gained a total of 75 pounds along with some weight related health issues. After gaining the weight so quickly, Drew also set the goal of losing that weight over the next six months. This book reveals all of the things he learned on his journey and things he learned from those that were losing weight right along with him. Inside you will find recipes, workout plans and everything else you need to conquer weight loss.

There are several meal plans and recipes included in the book that you can use. The three different sections of meal plans are broken up into segments including The Beginning, The Balance and The Breakthrough. The Beginning is the first segment which is designed to jump-start your weight loss. This phase cuts out dairy and grains and instead focuses on lean meats, fresh veggies and fruits.
