NEW YORK, Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Celebrity trainer Drew Manning, Limitless Worldwide Ambassador, and author of New York Times best seller Fit 2 Fat 2 Fit, will be featured on ABC's Extreme Weight Loss, where he'll share the story of how he intentionally gained and lost 75 pounds in one year.
Known in the fitness community for his inspirational transformations, Drew Manning is a certified personal trainer who has always been a fitness addict. Because of this, he had never been overweight, craved processed foods, or known what it was like to move through the world carrying dozens of extra pounds. But he saw these struggles in many of his clients and decided he wanted to learn firsthand about what millions of Americans live with every day.
In May 2011, Drew made the radical decision to let himself go. For six months, he stopped exercising and ate the common American diet of fast food and refined, processed snacks. Followers on his website voted on weekly "food challenges" they wanted Drew to take, and he lived up to his end of the bargain by devouring towers of doughnuts or completing "The Fuddrucker Challenge" (dining on a one-pound burger, one pound of bacon cheese fries, and a huge brownie sundae). Drew ended up gaining 75 pounds in just 26 weeks.
Drew then devoted the next six months to losing the weight while sharing his meal plans, exercise strategies, and the mental ups and downs he was experiencing with his followers on Fit2Fat2Fit.com, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. A number of these followers call themselves Team Drew and lost weight in tandem with him. Drew's blog became a viral hit with a Yahoo story, quickly landing him on major national shows including Good Morning America, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The View, Nightline, Dr. Drew and Dr. Oz. And his book Fit2Fat2Fit: The Unexpected Lessons from Gaining and Losing 75 lbs on Purpose quickly became a New York Times best seller.
Drew is a fitness inspiration and has continued benefitting lives through his weight-loss transformation and as a brand ambassador for Limitless Worldwide, a company that creates scientifically validated products that get real results.
