Michelle Obama orders 1,700 calorie lunch at Washington bistro
Everyone is entitled to a little cheating when it comes to dieting and eating healthy. But for Michelle Obama, who has been lecturing, hectoring, and wagging her finger at America for two years about how fat we are, how unhealthy we eat, and how we torture our children by feeding them snacks and stuff, there should be no vacation from eating right.
If she is going to pull crap like this, then she should shut her mouth and take care of her own:
First lady Michelle Obama ordered a whopper of a meal at the newly opened Washington diner Shake Shack during lunch on Monday.
A Washington Post journalist on the scene confirmed the first lady, who's made a cause out of child nutrition, ordered a ShackBurger, fries, chocolate shake and a Diet Coke while the street and sidewalk in front of the usually-packed Shake Shack were closed by security during her visit.
According to nutritional information on Shake Shack's Web site, the meal amounted to 1,700 calories.
Obama, who launched the "Let's Move" campaign to combat childhood obesity last year, has previously admitted to having an "obsession with french fries," which she says are fine to indulge in occasionally. "It's all about moderation," Obama told reporters.
No, it's not about "moderation" it's about control. FDA rules on restaurant menues, new rules on displaying ingredients, proposed sky high taxes on snacks and sodas - this is an issue of someone else telling you and your children what to eat because they say it's "for your own good."
Physician - heal thyself.
