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 story but terrible narration
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.

Could have been so much more
This left me flat. I love to pick up something in this genre from time to time as a motivation, but this story just left me feeling like this guy was saying, "I did it, so can you". He does a great service by emphasizing a healthy diet in the way he does, but doesn't give any reference to emotional eating or the science of sugar's effect on the body. He actually did not do any outside research with scientists or nutritionists. I know, there are zillions of books out there that cover that. But it is always good to be reminded of how your body is going to respond to that cookie or piece of bread. Some of the advise offered, finding a weight-loss buddy or sharing your goals with others, are gems we have all heard before. Ugh. The author is an absolute master of healthy eating and willpower, but despite taking this quite dramatic journey to understand what it feels like to be overweight, he does not address the problem most of us have completely eliminating bad foods from our diets as he does. It would have been interesting for him to experiment with his weight loss by incorporating cheat days and seeing what happens. The ever-present debate over whether it is about the goal or the journey? Do I swear off wine and scones forever? What do you say to your host when they serve lasagna and garlic bread at their dinner party? This story could have been so much more had the author expanded the story beyond his own narrow view. If you check out the author's website, you can probably find out if this book is for you. The mindset is 110% dedication and micro-managing of your diet and exercise. For those who are willing to be dedicated, but whose brains go hyper-focused on food when on this type of plan, this book doesn't give any answers.

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.
