What is Fitness w/ Drew Manning
Show Notes

During this weeks episode I chat with Drew Manning what it was like to go somewhere that put him in dark places physically and mentally.
As a man who struggles with body image and self doubt, chatting with Drew about what true fitness is was extremely enlightening on how it impacts our whole self.

Drew Manning is back in the spotlight with a new challenge he is calling Fit2Fat2Forty! He will be purposely gaining weight AGAIN, while following select “fad” diets and doing them wrong and then losing the pounds by doing them right, all just in time for his 40th birthday in December 2020.  


Drew Manning is a well-known Keto coach, physical trainer, and NY Times Best Selling Author of the book Fit2Fat2Fit.  Best known for his Fit2Fat2Fit experiment that went viral, Drew gained over a million followers as he documented his 75-pound weight gain and weight loss journey back in 2011. His podcast has over 2.5 million downloads and he's been featured on TV shows such as Dr. Oz, Good Morning America, The View, and many more. His experiment has become a hit TV show, called Fit to Fat to Fit, airing on A&E & Lifetime. Drew recently wrote and published his second book, Complete Keto, which is available wherever books are sold now.


Drew is someone who takes fitness and health very seriously and shares compassion with people who struggle with losing weight. He believes empathy is something that's missing from the fitness industry because not everyone understands how hard it can be and empathy bridges the gap and is key to understanding why some people struggle with transformation.   Drew is the father of two daughters and resides in Utah.
