Have you heard of @fit2fat2fit?
My friend Drew Manning intentionally GAINED 70lbs in 6 months (back
in 2011) and then spent the next six months losing the
And guess what? Nearly ten years later….he’s doing it AGAIN
But this time, with a totally different perspective and understanding. His new journey is called Fit2Fat2Forty (because he’s turning 40 in December) where he is currently spending 4 months gaining 60lbs and then he’ll spend the next 4 months getting back in shape. He’ll be sharing his workouts, meals, etc all online (all for free) so you can follow along too.
I brought Drew on my podcast today and asked him alllll the things! We go through things like:
The science behind what is happening/going to happen in his body, and also advice on what health markers we should ALL be getting tested on a regular basis.
The emotions he is experiencing (food cravings, brain fog, body image), what it’s like for his daughters (ages 9 & 11), and how his relationship with his girlfriend @juliefreedom is being impacted by this experiment.
We broke down what a typical day of meals looks like for him right now in the weight gain phase. One of the cool things we talked about is how he’s breaking down a lot of the popular fad diets as he does this...Vegan, Keto, Paleo & Vegetarian. He’s going to show how you can do all of those the right way OR the wrong way.
My favorite part, though, is where Drew explained his genuine intention and goal for doing this. He wants to bring empathy to the forefront of the fitness industry and show how having an empathy-first approach can have so much more of an impact than what you typically see in the fitness industry (get skinny, get a 6-pack, etc) and make everything all just about body image.
I really think you’re going to
love this podcast with Drew (who is a long-time friend of
mine). You’re seriously going to want to follow along on his
new journey...I know I am excited to see how it goes!
