You are what you eat? - Trump's fondness for fast food.

Maybe this helps explain his behavior.

“Trump’s appetite seems to know no bounds when it comes to McDonald’s, with a dinner order consisting of two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted.”

This 2,400-calorie meal is among the details in a forthcoming book by Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and aid David Bossie, as described in a preview by The Washington Post.

A dinner of that size would offer caloric energy for a full day. The 3,400 milligrams of sodium more than doubles the American Heart Association’s recommendation of 1,500 milligrams per day. The meal provides almost no fiber—and also offers more white bread than anyone would do well to eat in a week. This is all ominous for the president’s cardiovascular system.

So is the lack of variety. The book’s authors, who traveled with Trump early in his presidency, write: “On Trump Force One there were four major food groups: McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza, and Diet Coke.”

I'm sure that he knows more about proper diet than the doctors do, just like he knows more about ISIS than the generals do.

So I hope he's been able to continue this strict diet.

President Clinton has been on a healthy plant-based diet for many years now.

He definitely was, and had the health scare to prove it....

That always sounds funny. Plant based. Like you're chomping on whatever comes out of the ground. I'm so removed from thinking that an Apricot is a plant even though I pick them right off of our Apricot tree which is planted in the ground. Just the term "plant based" sounds like whatever he eats tastes terrible. Vegan sound undelicious too. But French Fry's are vegan.

Most of the Vegans I know don't seem to care all that much about animals. If they don't, then why are they Vegan?

I doubt that someone as wealthy as Bill Clinton eats terrible tasting food. smiling smiley
Next time you're in Seattle you should come over and I'll cook up some good plant-based stuff.


Most vegans I know do it for health reasons - they just believe it's a better way to eat. I don't know if they are right.

...and a chocolate malted.

McDonald’s doesn’t make a “malted”. Their “shakes” are barely shakes.

Who can eat 4 sandwiches? Even for Trump that sounds ridiculous.

Just because you are rich doesn't mean you enjoy good food. My friend worked for a guy who had millions but was not interested in sitting down to eat. He didn't care what he shoved in his mouth as long as it meant his meal would not take any time from his day. He honestly had zero interest in the taste of food and preferred to drive-through and eat while driving.

Do you want fries with that?

Jay Leno has said he often scarfs something down standing over the sink and looking out the window. Paul McCartney said he never got into eating expensive food, that he often just had a bowl of corn flakes for breakfast. Ringo Starr often has a baked potato and broccoli.
