Paul ‘PJ’ James: Muscled Hunk to Fat Dude. What would you do if you’re a trainer with a buffed model’s body and your clients are fat? Well, if you are Paul “PJ” James, you would eat a lot of carbohydrates and fatty foods and get fat so that, get this, you can identify with your client.
You know what, we don’t know whether to praise this guy for his commitment to his clients or whether to hit him in the head and hopefully make him see the light that he shouldn’t be playing with his health.
From the Daily Mail:
‘I was finding it difficult to relate to my overweight gym members so I have decided to crank up my weight to experience life as an overweight person,’ said the 32-year-old, who trains at a gym in Melbourne. After an inaugural meal of four doner kebabs, the Australian trainer has stopped his daily routine of exercise and is fattening himself up on a carbohydrate-heavy diet which includes pasta, cream sauces and chocolate.
The former teetotaler now drinks a couple of beers every night to help gain weight.
He hopes to hit 20st by the end of March. He then aims to spend the following three months at the same weight, to show overweight people that it can be done. Finally, he plans to resume exercise so that he will be back to his former trim self by October.
‘I have always been telling my clients who have come through the gym’s doors that weight loss shouldn’t be difficult, but it has reached the point where I can’t relate and by doing this it should make me a better personal trainer,’ he said.
Not that what he wants to underscore is not commendable but what do doctors think about what he is doing? Here’s what Dr. Matt Capehorn of the National Obesity Forum says of PJ’s plan: “Weight gain of this kind could cause Mr James to get visceral fat around his organs such as his heart and liver, increasing the dangers of diabetes and high blood pressure. Also, he could find his skin stretching when he loses his weight, which often happens in cases such as this.”
