Gaining & Losing over 60 LBS TWICE on Purpose: Drew Manning "Fit2Fat2Fit" Author

Update: 2022-07-11


Hi friends! This episode is featuring Drew Manning. Drew is a fitness trainer and Keto Diet expert. Manning made major headlines when he embarked on a journey to gain 70 pounds to understand what his clients undergo and experience the challenges himself. "Fit2Fat2Fit: The Unexpected Lessons from Gaining and Losing 75 lbs on Purpose" is a New York Times Bestseller, released in 2012, and his weight gain and weight loss journey was made into a TV show for A&E. 

Drew recently re-did the experiment again in 2020 and tested and  shared not only his journey but also his bloodwork while doing "healthy" and  "dirty" versions of keto, paleo, vegetarian and  vegan diets and his results might surprise you!

Prior to beginning a ketogenic diet you should undergo a health screening with your physician to confirm that a ketogenic diet is suitable for you and to rule out any conditions and contraindications that may pose risks or are incompatible with a ketogenic diet, including by way of example: conditions affecting the kidneys, liver or pancreas; muscular dystrophy; pregnancy; breast-feeding; being underweight; eating disorders; any health condition that requires a special diet [other conditions or contraindications]; hypoglycemia; or type 1 diabetes. A ketogenic diet may or may not be appropriate if you have type 2 diabetes, so you must consult with your physician if you have this condition. Anyone under the age of 18 should consult with their physician and their parents or legal guardian before beginning such a diet.
