    Gym Instructor Turns Junk Food Addict






    Fat Arizona Fitness Instructor Paul PFunk Addicted To Junk Food After Dodgy Diet | World News | Sky News



    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.

    Kebabs aren't junk food are they?

    4 months, sure he's not pregnant?
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    I asked around and Googled to see if he's eligible for the Nobel Peace prize but he just falls short of winning one.

    Yeah thats a pretty good publicity stunt to say the least, I'll use that as an excuse for my becoming a fat ass too! I just want to be able to sympathize with the fatties.

    Min0, nice little inserts as always.

    We have lots of great Turkish places around Brooklyn. When I had money, I'd have chicken gyro/kebab plates fairly regularly and didn't consider it a cheat. I'd opt for the chicken because lamb is fatty and I'm not a huge fan anyway. They do use fattier parts of the chicken but I would not consider it junk food by far. I lost the first 15 out of 20 or so pounds, eating that stuff probably once a week or so and I only stopped because I'm broke.
