Paul Bain is a self-confessed chocoholic and sugar-rush fiend.
The 44-year-old financial adviser admits that in his teens and twenties he consumed upwards of 4,000 calories a day, mostly via pies, chips and sweet treats.

But rather than avoid chocolate, he has devised a plan that allows him to carry on enjoying his favourite food.
“I try not to eat it Monday to Thursday, but Friday is my treat night. I buy chocolate for me and the kids and a bottle of wine for my wife. There’s loads of chocolate for me and a tiny bit for the children,” he adds with a cheeky smile.
“Seriously, though, I can sit and eat a whole bar by myself. My dad is the same.”

I am the owner and motivator behind David Fairlamb Fitness. I am highly qualified and very experienced in all areas of health, fitness, sport and well-being with over 18 years' experience.
After successfully completing a Sport Studies with Business and Finance course at Manchester Metropolitan University I gained an athletic scholarship at Long Beach, California, whilst being coached by the Olympic coach Stan Long. In Long Beach I started personal training and gained a huge amount of experience within the fitness industry.
Due to a back injury I was unable to compete at the highest level of athletics and I returned home to the North East. However, the injury did not stop me playing rugby and played for Westoe 1st team for 10 years and Durham County. Previously I had captained Northumberland schools, achieved England Schoolboy trials. I also achieved honours in athletics, tennis, football and rugby, gaining coaching qualifications in each.
Most significantly I qualified in Advanced Personal Fitness training through Premier Fitness and have qualifications in Sports Psychology and Life Coaching.
I am confident that, with the combined abilities and experience of the team and myself, we can provide the expertise and motivation to help you achieve and sustain a more healthy and fulfilled lifestyle.
