A TOP US diet expert has blasted the Prime Minister’s anti-obesity campaign – because he is too fat himself.
Author Steve Siebold – who has received death threats for telling people they’re too tubby – reckons that Brown should shed the pounds before lecturing people on their weight.
He said: “When someone like Gordon Brown is overweight it sends out a message to millions of young people.
“People like him and Oprah Winfrey are role models – they really ought to look in the mirror.”
Earlier this year Brown blasted cartoonists for portraying him “far too fat.”
And last summer Brown, 58, hired a top personal training for £50-an-hour to try to get fit.
Steve – author Die Fat Or Get Tough – says people need to take control of their own lives more.
He said: “We get bombarded with messages and adverts saying “It’s not your fault’ – well it is your fault.
“You’re the one putting food in your mouth – that’s what people need to understand rather than trying to blame everyone else.”
“I went on national TV the other day – which went out to about ten million people – and I told them it is your fault if you’re too fat.
“I’ve had death threats – probably about 2000 vicious emails from people calling me a Nazi and comparing me to Hitler.
“I just lecture people on mental toughness.”
