An Arizona fitness instructor, who gained more than 105 pounds in four months as part of an experiment, says he is now hooked on junk food.

Paul Funk, 32, a former model, went on his binge-eating escapade so he could understand his fat gym clients better.
To gain weight, he ate kebabs and fry-ups, as well as bacon, chips and chocolate milk and went from 175lbs stones in January to his present weight of 280lbs.
PFunk gave up exercise and now feels physically terrible.
"I feel down. I don't feel like doing anything. I used to eat lean meat and veg, now I've got a taste for biscuits and fizzy drinks. It's tough to break the cycle," he admitted.
The former underwear model, who has strutted his stuff on the catwalks of Milan IronMagazine and Tokyo , said he had tried to do the experiment as carefully as possible, having regular blood pressure and health checks.
Despite the checks there are still potential risks such as liver disease, Erectile dysfunction or heart problems, health experts say.
But P-Funk, from Arizona, is not planning to stay his current size for long.
He aims to begin a diet in July and, together with his extra-plump clients, be lean and mean by Christmas.
