Science Experiment of the Day: The photo on the left? That’s the before.
Personal trainer Drew Manning has spent the past five months intentionally gaining 70 pounds by eating all the stuff you like to eat — frosted cereals, white bread, chips, mac n cheese, frozen dinners, and soda — as part of a personal project he calls ”Fit 2 Fat 2 Fit.”
Drew, who will soon begin the arduous journey back to fitness, hopes his experiment will teach him something about how the fatter half lives.
Asked what he’s learned so far, Drew said the biggest thing was “how intense and how real these food cravings are.” He goes on:
I know I’ll never know exactly what it’s like for every person that’s overweight and I don’t claim to, but at least I understand better than I did before when I never had to struggle with this. I hope to learn a lot more in the second half of my journey, from fat 2 fit.
