Losing Weight at 40 is Hard, But Not Impossible

You may recall Dunn Pellier Media’s fitness client, Drew Manning, from Fit2Fat2Forty. In anticipation of his 40th birthday, he set out to gain weight over 4 months to prove to himself and to his clients that you can get fit after 40!

Drew is well on his way to proving his point, bringing his fitness followers and followers on Instagram along for the ride. In the weight gain part of his plan, he showed four diets – vegan, paleo, keto, etc. – and demonstrated all of them in an unhealthy way.  He also dropped all of his fitness routines.  He wanted people to see how not to do these diets in order to gain weight.

In his “back to fit” portion of the plan, he is showing everyone these same four diets but this time following them the right way.  And he has added back his fitness routines and the motivational part to keep everyone moving!  He was able to demonstrate that when done correctly, you can get fit no matter your dietary preferences – with a few tweaks, of course.

Drew is presently 28 weeks into this 8-month journey. Let’s see how he’s doing!
