Drew Manning

Host of Fit 2 Fat 2 Fit

Drew Manning is a medical technician by day and a personal trainer in his spare time. When he started his experiment on May 7, 2011, Manning had a 34.5-inch waist and 17-inch neck, and he weighed 193 pounds. To gain weight, Drew Manning stopped working out and started eating fast food and drinking soda. He then saw why his overweight clients were sometimes frustrated. “I thought I was just going to get love handles, man boobs, a big gut and then I would lose it all,” he told “Nightline.” “Complete opposite. Very, very hard.” Shown here is Manning at 222.3 pounds in week 7. Drew Manning documented his progress with a weekly blog. As the weeks progressed, his confidence and his health took a downturn. Manning became winded easily, and his glucose level and blood pressure were high. “My kidneys were those of an alcoholic, my doctor said…because of all the soda I was drinking. I don’t drink alcohol,” Manning said. Here he is at 250.2 pounds in week 16. A year after launching the “Fit2Fat2Fit” experiment, Drew Manning weighed 190 in the end. Shown here is what he looked like at week 52. Manning said part of his motivation came from the enormous online following he developed through his blog entries. His story was retold in his new book, “Fit2Fat2Fit: The Unexpected Lessons from Gaining and Losing 75 lbs on Purpose.”
