President Donald Trump‘s days of ordering a 2,530-calorie McDonald’s meal are over — at least for now.
According to a new CNN report, the leader who stands on the precipice of clinical obesity is quietly making small changes to his diet, and acknowledging in private that he needs to lose weight. Exercise, however, reportedly remains less of a priority for the 71-year-old — even as he takes part in Wednesday’s White House Sports and Fitness Day.
“Some people exercise, some people don’t,” Dr. Ronny Jackson, the White House physician, said in January while announcing the results of Trump’s physical. “Some people just haven’t done that as part of their routine. And I would say that’s the category he falls in right now.”
But CNN reports that the president is making noticeable changes to his eating habits, with Dover sole (his favorite) often being substituted for steak, and buns from his beloved hamburgers being removed — at least the top halves. Dietitians have also reportedly been working with the White House kitchen on ideas for healthier eating.
