Are the healths risks associated with eating a diet rich in saturated fats, sugar and other nasty artery clogging food stuffs worth the risk to his liver and other organs?
‘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.
Doctors in this country though have pointed out the dangers of such rapid weight gain and loss.
‘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,’ says Dr Matt Capehorn of the National Obesity Forum.
I find it confusing that rapid weight gain followed by loss can give one an insight into understanding how overweight/obese can lose weight.
A highly conditioned personal trainer has missed the most important part of losing weight, the psychological element.
It’s like saying that a new Ford sedan can get 1,000,000kms from the engine just because a Taxi drivers does.
The missing point is the car is running 24/7 with all the fluids and filters changed regularly.
Your average Ford Sedan is driven for 30kms to work, the engines cools and it doesn’t reach operating temperature until the drive back home, similarly no moisture builds in the engine if driven constantly.
Do you think that Paul “PJ” James is more akin to the average sedan or the Taxi work horse?
