Drew Manning’s Weight Loss and Fitness Journey

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!

As the holidays approach, and the call of all those yummy holiday foods are beginning their initial tantalizing whispers, we thought it would be a good time to check in with our very own Drew Manning of Fit2Fat2Fit! Drew is currently in week 10 of his 3-month challenge to gain weight again! He’s out to prove that you can get fit after 40, hence the title of this latest challenge, #fit2fat2forty! He turns 40 himself at the end of December, and will be embarking on a 3-month journey to get fit again and drop all the weight he has gained during this time alongside any and all of his followers who want to drop weight too!

With the holidays on the horizon, we’re thinking he timed the “weight gain” portion of his challenge quite perfectly! You can bet he’ll be having seconds and probably even thirds of all that pumpkin pie, eggnog, and gravy!

Before we lose you in your daydreams of holiday foods (sorry about that!), let’s check in to see Drew’s progress:

Week 1:

Weight = 181.6 lbs
Waist = 33.5’’
Hips = 38”
Body Fat % = 8.4%

Week 9:

Weight = 217.6 lbs
Waist = 41.25”
Hips = 43.5”
Body Fat % = 18.9%

Mental/Emotional Changes:

  • Still sleep-deprived
  • Libido is dropping
  • I get stressed easier
  • Feel tired during the day and almost need to take naps
  • Can’t fall asleep at night even though I’m exhausted
  • Constant brain fog
  • Lack of motivation to do chores/work
  • Major food cravings
  • Eating my emotions

Ugh, there you have it, folks. Proof that though the food may feel good on your tastebuds, choosing unhealthy foods comes with a price, many of them listed in Drew’s list of mental and emotional changes above.

If you could use a little extra kick in the New Year to get fit and healthy, you might want to consider hopping onto Drew’s challenge when it begins on January 3rd! JOIN THE JOURNEY!

Whether you are just generally interested in tracking Drew’s journey or you have a personal “steak” in the game, follow him on IG @fit2fat2fit and subscribe to his podcast for more intimate details.

Here at Dunn Pellier Media, we take great care to make sure we represent only the best of the best of health and wellness companies. That is why we are so proud (not to mention, satiated!) to announce our newest partnership with Territory Foods.

If you haven’t jumped on the meal delivery service yet, you might want to consider getting on board since Territory Foods caters to all types of foodies. This meal delivery company caters to all foodies, and boasts no refined sugars, no gluten or dairy, and foods that are responsibly sourced and prepared by local artisan chefs.  Right now they cater to the areas of Los Angeles, OC, San Diego, Dallas, SF and DC.

Paleo? Keto? Whole30? Vegan? Vegetarian? Flexitarian…insert-your-diet-here, no problem – Territory Foods has something for everyone. Their specialty is to personalizeyour dietary approach. Meals are made-to-order fresh each week and start around $10 (yes, $10!!). Free delivery to a nearby pickup spot (or home delivery where available). No shopping, no schlepping, no cooking, no cleaning.

Eating for a cause:

It’s one thing to eat really great food that you know is healthy (especially when you didn’t have to prepare it yourself). It’s another thing to know that your dollars are going to work on more than just your healthy heart and waistline. 

Every time you place a Territory order, through their partnership with Feeding America® more than a pound of food is recovered and shared with someone struggling to put food on the table. I mean – come on, folks! Can it get any better than this? Food with a cause – and a footprint you can feel good about as you lick your plate and fingers clean.

Complete Keto: A Guide to Transforming Your Body and Your Mind for Life

You can’t go very far these days without hearing the word KETO in conversation somewhere. Maybe your doctor has recommended it. Maybe your friend has sworn by it. Maybe you hear it on a podcast somewhere.

If there is a single diet that is taking North America by storm right now, it’s the KETO diet. And with good reason. Studies continue to show the benefits of a high fat, medium protein, low carb diet (aka the foundation of the KETO diet). Drew Manning, KETO and fitness expert, has explained it all beautifully in his new book, “Complete Keto: A Guide to Transforming your Body and Your Mind for Life.” 

Drew inadvertently made a name for himself a few years ago when he purposely gained and lost 75 pounds in 6 months. How did he lose the weight? KETO. That’s how. And work outs. Lots of work outs.

He documented his self experiment in his first book (which, we should add, became a New York Times Bestselling book) called Fit2Fat2Fit. Since then, he has helped thousands of people lose weight, get fit, and stay fit. He has been featured on Good Morning America, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, MSNBC, Yahoo!, The Dr. Oz Show, The Doctors and CNN, along with his own show on A&E and Lifetime.

Drew is back with his new book Complete Keto: A Guide to Transforming Your Body and Your Mind For Life. This is the first book of its kind, offering a truly comprehensive, integrative, and results-driven ketogenic diet program to create lasting change in your life. The book contains a highly accessible program that is filled with practical tools, emotional support, and real-life wisdom readers need to get lasting results.  In this fitness and health landscape that has become enamored with the KETO diet, this book has a holistic approach to KETO and can enhance how you might be already using the diet.

So what are you waiting for? Spring out of bed in the morning. Increase your energy to epic proportions. Sharpen your mind, be on top of your game, and always be ready for action. Consider going KETO, and if you do, use Drew’s book as a resource for what will probably be the most important transformation of your life. The books hits shelves February 12th. Pre-order your copy today.

Want Mental Clarity AND Fat Loss?

Go Keto, says Drew Manning, and yes: Eat more Fat!

As health trends tend to do, once they start spreading, they spread like wildfire. The Keto health trend is one such example, and if you’re looking for an amazing bio hack to jumpstart your health and gain mental clarity, you might want to dive deeper into what it means to be Keto.

Celebrity fitness trainer, Drew Manning, created the 60 Day Keto Jumpstart specifically for this reason.

As he said in an article in Organic Authority by Emily Monaco, by going Keto, “People are experiencing this mental clarity that they’ve never experienced before.”

As part of Manning’s program, he encourages intermittent fasting (where you don’t eat for a span of up to 16 hours but at least 12 hours), eating fatty foods (yes, you read that right, but don’t head to the greasy fried foods just yet), and following a program that feels easy and frankly, not like dieting at all.

In Manning’s words, “the Ketogenic Diet is a high fat, moderate protein, and low carbohydrate diet. Through the restriction of carbohydrates, it re-programs your metabolism to burn your fat stores for fuel rather than using the glycogen stored in your muscles. The low-carb intake helps to keep your insulin and blood sugar levels from spiking. This allows your fat cells to begin releasing fatty acids, which your liver will then break down to produce what are called “ketones.” Ketosis is the physiological state that is achieved when your body breaks down ketones for energy rather than the glucose from carbohydrates.”

Sound interesting? We thought so too.
