Fit 2 Fat 2 Fit and Back Again with Drew Manning


Are you a busy, hardworking dad who is ready to get in his best physical health this year? We have the most amazing guest for you!

Drew Manning is NY Times Bestselling author of Fit2Fat2Fit, a book about how he gained and lost seventy-five pounds in order to better understand the struggle to lose weight. Now he talks about Fit2Fat2Forty, which addresses the particular struggles we have with extra weight as we get older.

Drew is bent on disrupting the aspects of the fitness industry that have no empathy for overweight people. He talks about the emotional and mental work that we need to do to take care of our bodies. He also tells us how busy dads can define health for themselves so that diet and exercise doesn’t feel like punishment.

Prepare yourself to not only become a healthy dad, but also a happy and energetic one.

It’s not about body fat percentage, it’s about where you feel good. —Drew Manning

 

Drew Manning

Health and fitness expert Drew Manning is the New York Times best-selling author of Fit2Fat2Fit: The Unexpected Lessons from Gaining and Losing 75 lbs on Purpose and has for years been a leading voice in the burgeoning Keto Diet movement. Drew is also the creator of the A&E Show Fit to Fat to Fit and the host of The Fit2Fat2Fit Experience podcast. With over a million social media followers, Drew continues to transform people’s lives all around the world. Known for his straightforward and empathetic fitness and health coaching, Drew has been featured on The Dr. Oz Show, CNN, Good Morning America, The Tonight Show, The View, and MSNBC, among other media outlets. He lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, with his daughters, who remind him every day not to take things too seriously.

Fit2Fat2Fit

Drawing from the lessons and insights of his breakout website, Fit2Fat2Fit.com, personal trainer Drew Manning delivers the story of his quest to go from fit to fat to fit again in one year in order to better understand the weight-loss struggles of his clients and the online community. Drew embarked on this journey to prove to clients, website followers, and people across the country that it is possible to get back into shape—and his bottomless desire to kindle a new hope for his readers comes through on every page of Fit2Fat2Fit. With before and after (and after…) photos to that tell their own striking story, and intimate reflections from Drew’s wife Lynn, Fit2Fat2Fit is more than a spectacle or a gimmick; it’s an inspiring story, and sound proof that anyone can reach the level of fitness they desire to make themselves happy.

What You’ll Learn

  • Drew first did the Fit2Fat2Fit challenge because his personal training clients said the he didn’t understand their struggles with weight loss.
  • Drew is going at it again as a 40-year-old to address the challenges that come up as our bodies and metabolism change.
  • Many people in the fitness industry have no empathy for overweight people.
  • There is a mental component to fitness and weight loss. Overeating can be from trauma.
  • Mental and emotional work to address the self-worth issues that no amount of dieting and exercise can fix.
  • Becoming overweight taught Drew to separate his body image as his self-image.
  • He grew up with self-hate because in his upbringing, he felt he had to be perfect or he was a complete failure.
  • He pretended to be confident to hide his imperfections.
  • Without his fit body, he was lost. It was the only thing that gave him self-worth and the only thing he could control.
  • Own your story and write your own ending.
  • How he is helping his daughters to grow up with a healthy body image
  • Being out of shape affects the core of who you are.
  • How your diet impacts your sex life and finances
  • The key for busy dads to finding time and energy for diet and fitness
  • It’s not about getting the body. It’s about loving yourself enough to take care of your physical health.
  • Treat yourself kindly so exercise is not a punishment.
  • Increase self-awareness. Observe your thoughts instead of being your thoughts. What triggers you to make bad health choices and why?
  • Your kids don’t care what you look like. They just want you to love them.

Healthy Habits for Marriage, Fatherhood, and Fitness


Lockdown has affected us physically as well as mentally. Our relationships have been challenged like never before. But we have the power to recalibrate with healthy habits that will help our bodies, minds, and connection to our families.

Today we talk to everyday dad and Dad Edge Alliance member, Jordan Kaufman. He talks about the signs that warned him he needed to change, why he committed to an extreme health challenge, and how he will use his newfound resilience to keep making his body, mind, and marriage stronger.

What You’ll Learn

  • Step outside of arguments to keep your cool and solve problems.
  • Train yourself to have more humility and be less defensive.
  • Listen to what your wife is really saying and not to how it’s being delivered.
  • Apply the growth mindset to your marriage. You might not get it today, but you will get it down the road.
  • Approach disagreements with appreciation and curiosity. You don’t have to agree, just understand.
  • You’re in control of your thoughts, responses, and actions, no matter how you feel.
  • Help your kids solve the problem instead of reacting to it.
  • Jordan took charge of his health when he realized he was getting dad boobs.
  • Accountability is the biggest factor in the success of fitness goals and all other goals.
  • Take care of yourself in the between moments. Small habits add up to big results.
  • Use your fitness routine as time with your children.

Getting Started with Intermittent Fasting

Getting Started with Intermittent Fasting


It’s 2020, and we’re all pumped about taking action on our health and fitness goals. Intermittent fasting is getting a huge amount of attention, not just for weight loss, but for anti-aging, disease prevention, and mental sharpness.

Getting started with intermittent fasting is challenging mentally and physically, but in this show you will learn the benefits that make it all worth it.

Today we have Joel Staley from Dads Who Lift on the show. He helps busy parents turn their bodies into fat-burning machines. He tells us what happens to our bodies when we fast, how to break into a fasting routine, and what results to expect.

Intermittent Fasting Benefits

  • Better at preserving muscle than calorie deprivation
  • Gives your digestive system a break
  • Triggers autophagy, the recycling of old cells
  • Increases mental sharpness
  • Puts your body into ketosis to burn fat
  • Regulates hormones
  • Stimulates human growth hormone

Dad Fitness and Nutrition Bootcamp

The Driven Dad Fitness and Nutrition Bootcamp


Why do many of us fathers neglect our health? There are two main reasons. The number one reason is guilt. We feel bad for taking time away from work and family to spend on ourselves. The second reason is money. We would have to spend more to eat healthier, join a gym, or hire a personal trainer.

But not making our health a priority is the biggest disservice to ourselves and our families.

In this episode, we have a panel discussion with Dr. Adrian Chavez of Your Nutrition Prescription and Chris Hughes from The Driven Dad. They have put together a fully-customized 8-week fitness and nutrition bootcamp for dads. We also talk to members Rashad and Mickey about what made this bootcamp unique and how it has transformed their health and their lives!
