Mr. Motivator reveals he believes people now take criticism of their weight “too personally” despite diabetes and obesity levels going “through the roof”.

He rose to fame as the man who moved the nation: he influenced people to lose weight and start exercising.

But Mr. Motivator believes people now take criticism about their weight “too personally”, despite diabetes and obesity levels “going through the roof”.

The fitness fanatic, who appeared on GMTV during the 1990s to carry out exercise routines, said at the time that you could “nudge” someone’s stomach and tell them to get fit.

But today, people are too sensitive about their shape and size and complain of being embarrassed if told to get fit, she said.

Speaking on the Loose Ends podcast, she said that nowadays, in the age of body positivity, everyone believes they have the right “to be whatever size you want”.

Born Derrick Evans, 71, but known for his unitards and colorful spandex suits, Mr. Motivator said diabetes and obesity levels “have gone through the roof” because Britons are spending too much time in front of the TV.

He said: “In those days you could actually call someone fat if you wanted to, nobody really took it that personally.

“You could poke someone in the gut and say ‘you’ve got to face it’, but we’re talking about the early 90s.

“Now times have changed, don’t do it because everyone should have the right to be whatever size you want.

“But I think my job is to tell you ‘listen, you can be a size 20 if you want to, but you can be a size 20.’

She said she has always liked to “dress it up in a sugary coating” and get “bright and colourful” and “fun”.

He added: “Our obesity levels, our diabetes levels in this country have gone through the roof.

“It’s gone through the roof because people have become lazy, we spend too much time in front of the television, we don’t really think about the fact that we are a wonderful specimen and we have to take care of it.

“So my impulse now is to say, ‘Listen, I’m 71 years old, and as far as I’m concerned, I want to be the living example of someone who gets over the hill but picks up speed.’

Mr. Motivator came into the limelight in 1993 as the health and fitness guru on GMTV, leading the nation in his morning workout sessions.

In September, 30 years after her show debuted, she delighted viewers when she returned to daytime TV for an interview on This Morning.

The fitness instructor wowed fans with his youthful looks and abundance of energy as he chatted to Holly Willoughby and Dermot O’Leary before demonstrating an exercise routine.

The lycra-loving legend revealed that the key to her demeanor was her mindset, explaining: “I know that being positive every day means that negativity doesn’t affect me.”

“If you practice being positive, you always will be.”

It hasn’t always been easy for the star, however, who reflected on the period of time he was homeless.

The Jamaican-born fitness expert said: “I lived near the Arsenal and I went to a family homeless unit and sat outside in my suitcase waiting every day for us to be given somewhere to stay. eat and eat

“But through it all I kept hope alive. We will all go through difficulties but it makes you appreciate when the good times come”.
