ritain is “losing the war” on obesity to spare people’s feelings about being fat, according to the founder of a global gym business.

Former City barrister Nick Mitchell, hailed as “London’s best personal trainer” and owner of Ultimate Performance – whose clients include Olivia Colman, Gemma Atkinson and Top Gun 2 actor Glen Powell, said the Government needs to make living healthier easier.

He suggested raising tax on junk food, lowering tax on good food and rewarding the healthy with lower national insurance payments, which helps fund the NHS.

He said: “We are living in age when feelings are more important than facts, and there is a push to be morally right, not factually correct, which is a nonsensical statement.

“We are losing the war on obesity and crippling the healthcare system.

“We need to take drastic action.

“We have to have honest conversations with the obese that they are slowly, and insidiously, killing themselves, but we also need to show compassion and humanity and give them the support they need.”

The entrepreneur quit the City in 2009 to start personal training business, Ultimate Performance Fitness.

Now widely recognised as a world-leading personal trainer with gyms in four continents, the Yorkshire-born entrepreneur is concerned the nation is losing its fight on the obesity epidemic.

Mr Mitchell said: “You have to look at the impact of unfettered access to junk food. I was born in 1972.

Look at the 1970s, and videos of people at the seaside. No-one was fat. Look at it now – it’s an absolute disaster.

“If you ask your grandparents what they remember about food during the Second World War, they’ll probably say: ‘Don’t remember much, I just remember being hungry.’

“Nowadays, the unfettered access to junk food is a real problem.”

Mr Mitchell also described the “health at every size” movement as “garbage”, calling for a “push back against the notion it is socially acceptable to be obese”.

He said: “You’re not healthy at every size. If you are overweight, you are more likely to die.

“And it is our public responsibility, it’s the Government’s responsibility, and it’s health professionals’ responsibility to tell people the truth.
