    Drew Manning, a natural fitness junkie and devoted personal trainer, had never been overweight in his life. He never craved junk food or missed an opportunity to work out. Yet despite his obsession with fitness, he failed to help his clients reach their goals. Something had to give. Manning needed to understand what it was like to be on the other side; he had to spend a few months in his clients' shoes - or rather, size. For six months, Manning radically let himself go. He stopped exercising and ate the typical American diet.

    Story
    Would you listen to Fit2Fat2Fit again? Why?

    Yes. It a compelling story as well as chock full of helpful info about the difficulties in coping with obesity. It helps me appreciate the struggle I and other compulsive over-eaters are engaged in daily. I will return to this book time and again as I continue my journey towards a healthier lifestyle.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Drew. He does a good job sharing what he learned in his Fit2Fat2Fit experience. He gained a lot of insight by actually putting himself through the paces of over-eating, then struggling with weight loss.


    What does Drew Manning bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Personal experience with the issue, knowledge of the benefit of exercising, and sensitivity toward his clients


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Drew's lapse into lethargy as he piled on the excess weight. Also, his anxiety about whether he would be able to lose it now that he has gained 60 unwanted pounds.


    Any additional comments?

    Very good book full of insights. Drew's wife also does a great job describing her concerns and experience as her husband embarked on this adventure. Very honest sharing of her own experience.
