A personal trainer, who has beaten Delia Smith’s record for the first week of cookery book sales, wants to follow in Jamie Oliver’s footsteps and work with the Government to tackle obesity.

Joe Wicks aka The Body Coach wants politicians to pay attention to his plan after it was revealed his debut book Lean in 15 has sold 77,097 in its first week – outselling the first week sales of Delia’s bestseller How To Cook in 2008.

The 30-year-old from Epsom, Surrey said: “My goal in the next five years is to be working with schools and education but also getting on the NHS because I think my plan – I’ve helped people with diabetes and over-active thyroids and all sorts of things – so for me it’s a really sustainable way of living that people should all know about.

“I think kids need to learn at a really young age how to eat. I think they’re the ones sort of buying the food on the way to school and making these food choices. No one is there to educate them so I am thinking of doing a body coach academy where I go in, do a little workout with them, teach them about nutrition and get them cooking a meal.”
