Let's Do This!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fit2Fat2Fit (Paperback)
When I first saw Drew featured on CNN's website, I looked at his Fit photo and made a snap judgement. Washboard abs, shaved chest, whiter than white teeth...this guy thought he was something special, right? He had to be a boneheaded gym rat and I was not going to like him. Nuh uh. Then I went to his website and read his blog and watched the video posts. And I realized that he really is a likeable guy with a sweet family, who wasn't perfect (and doesn't think he's perfect) and was struggling to work through his own problems with making snap judgements about people.
I was intrigued and wanted to know more, so I ordered the book. The book is the perfect compliment to his website. There are more personal details about the rollercoaster of emotions that he went through and the lessons he learned as he went from fit to fat and back. Plus, one of the best parts, is that you get an entire chapter from his wife's perspective. What would it be like if your Greek Adonis turned into Bluto from the famous Animal House frat, Delta Tau Chi? Read and discover!
The book is an easy read and outlines a straightforward plan for everyone to go from fat to fit, with a strong emphasis that this is NOT a diet. Instead, it's a lifestyle change. He provides meal plans, recipes, exercises, advice and a big dose of encouragement.
I didn't want to like him, but I really do. And thanks to him in just a few weeks of following his plan, I weigh less than I have in 5 years. As Drew says, "Let's do this!"
