Drew Manning on purposely gaining and losing 75 pounds, keto diet and vulnerability

- Drew Manning was working as a personal trainer when he purposely gained and lost 75 pounds in order to gain a better perspective on the struggles of his clients. 

He has since become a New York Times bestselling author and hosted the A&E show "Fit To Fat To Fit," which follows other personal trainers from across the country as the undergo a similar experiment in which they intentionally gain weight -- and then lose it alongside their clients. 

Drew has also become very knowledgeable about the ketogenic diet, appearing on "The Dr. Oz Show" to explain its benefits. He now runs a 60-day Keto Jumpstart Program and is working on a keto-related book.

On his podcast, The Fit2Fat2Fit Experience, Drew interviews various people talking about everything from physical health to mental health. In two recent episodes that are both very honest and vulnerable, he shares some pretty intimate details about his own life, his divorce and overcoming his addiction to pornography -- and then his ex-wife Lynn follows by sharing her side of the story and tips to heal after a major life change.

He joined me on Olympic & Bundy to discuss "Fit To Fat To Fit," the keto diet, his religious upbringing, the importance of being vulnerable and more.
