Trump's weight-loss regimen: fish and half a bun

https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/30/politics/donald-trump-fitness-dover-sole/index.html

Washington (CNN)Dietitians have been consulted in the White House kitchens. Steak has been swapped out for Dover sole, his favored fish. And hamburger buns have been discarded -- or at least the tops have.

President Donald Trump, who embarked upon a mission to shed 10 to 15 pounds in January, has acknowledged in private that he needs to lose weight. Prodded along by his White House physician and the knowledge he is approaching obesity, Trump agreed earlier this year to alter his diet and begin a new exercise plan. Five months into his regimen, people close to him say they've detected small changes, mostly in how he eats, that reflect a desire to follow doctor's orders.

But they haven't identified a discernible exercise routine beyond the weekend rounds of golf the President enjoys with the help of a cart. Trump himself has continued to downplay the importance of exercise, even questioning whether it presents more risk than reward.

On Wednesday, Trump will publicly tout the importance of physical fitness during an event on the White House South Lawn, accompanied by his daughter Ivanka and major sports figures such as legendary New York Yankees relief pitcher Mariano Rivera and Misty May-Treanor, a three-time Olympic gold medal winning beach volleyball player.

Their goal is to reverse the trend of declining participation in youth sports through initiatives and research that reinforces the importance of staying active. Whether Trump will hold himself up as a model remains to be seen.


In completely unrelated coincidence that may also be fake news: President Trump has common form of heart disease
https://www.cnn.com/2018/01/17/health/trump-heart-disease-gupta/index.html
(CNN)Like most men of his age, President Donald Trump has a common form of heart disease, relatively easy to address if he increases the dose of his cholesterol-lowering medication and makes necessary lifestyle changes. Without those changes, the President has a moderate risk of having a heart attack in the next three to five years, according to the Mayo Clinic.


In completely unrelated news, Dr. Gupta is facing deportation despite being born in America.

14. Everything about this admin is a lie

as far as Iím concerned he still eats his weight in McDonaldís products every month. If heís lost any weight at all itís not apparent. A bit like throwing a deck chair off the Titanic.

10. He is well past the technical definition of obesity. It is in the rear view mirror at this point.

I am 6'1', 215 pounds and at my medical facility that is in the "obesity" category.


Apparently I am supposed to be about 180,lol....which I was in high school playing sports.
But yes, he is a lardass.

18. With that quadruple chin of his, there's no way he's 239.

I call bullshit on this and I'm not a doctor!

7. I don't know what they're talking about. Looks great doesn't need to change a thing. If anything

a little more cholesterol would do him wonders.

12. I laughed when I heard that RUMP will be involved in phy. fitness stuff today at the White ...

House (south lawn, touting the benefits of phy. fitness)...I was just imagining that when he got done w/ the ceremonies outside, he'll probably rush inside (it's hot today) and start gasping in oxygen...

19. I honestly don't believe he has that much willpower,

 

I hope he's sending his aides out on secret KFC and McDonald's runs late at night when nobody is watching, and stuffs them in his fat mouth while he watches TV in his bathrobe with the bedroom door locked.

His horrible diet is our greatest hope! He can't start eating healthier! He just can't!

When eating out.

I do it all the time, especially with McDonald's breakfast sandwiches.
