While Mateo was transitioning from carnivore to “mostly” vegetarian in 0 to 60, Katie loathed herself every time she shoved a French fry into her mouth. This may be the first episode of A&E’s Fit to Fat to Fit reality TV show in which the fitness trainer had a more difficult time with the experiment than the client had with the weight loss program. Katie opens up to Drew about how much she hated every minute and every morsel. She says she doesn’t regret taking in the challenge but she will never, ever do it again. Mateo had his own set of challenges when his body broke down shortly after starting the program, because he hadn’t worked out in years. He also found his soda cravings unbearable. They both agree finding someone who understands what you are going through is the best motivation in the world.

Changing your diet requires more than willpower. We all have emotional connections with certain foods, which drive us to eat when we are not hungry or bored. Breaking the cycle was the toughest part for Raela. She felt angry and emotional as she was eliminating soda and other sugars from her life. She had not realized the addictive spell she was under. This week’s trainer, Corey Taylor, was struggling with the Fit to Fat to Fit experience until Drew visited to help him through the physical and emotional hits his body was taking. Corey feels it helped to have someone who understood what he was going through and after his Fit to Fat to Fit experience, he was able to be there mentally for Raela.
