I’m so excited to present our very first guest on The Crave Cure Series here on The Beyond The Food Show! Drew Manning is the New York Times bestselling author of the book, Fit2Fat2Fit and is best known for his Fit2Fat2Fit.com experiment that went viral online.

In this episode, he shares how he voluntarily gained 70 lbs to discover more about food cravings. He also tells us how this experiment affected him emotionally and what it did to his self-identity. Find out how he went from from fat to fit! It’s so insightful you’ll want to listen to this until the very end!

Last episode was the 50th, a major milestone in the history of this podcast. I also kicked off The Crave Cure series, the world’s first conference on food cravings where 10 experts — MDs, functional medicine practitioners, and psychologists with PhDs are going to discuss all aspects of food cravings and offer effective solutions to help you heal your relationship with food. If you want to know what the series is all about, listen to the last episode.

Next episode, I’m going to be with Samantha Skellish from Hungry for Happiness. We will discuss the impact our emotions have on food cravings. Tune in for this next Thursday!
