This is rich. And high in saturated fats.
Michelle Obama was spotted at the burger joint Shake Shack in Washington, DC, Monday afternoon. She ordered a burger, French fries, a chocolate milkshake and a Diet Coke (she’s watching her figure), according to the Washington Post.
Obama recently admitted French fries are a bit of an addiction for her, but her engorged appetite at Shake Shack still might come as a bit of shock given her primary concern since joining her husband in the White House has been battling child obesity.
And it was only last month she helped replace the iconic Food Pyramid with the new “Choose My Plate” graphic (which, unlike the Food Pyramid, has no place at all for “fats, oils and sweets”).
Based on the nutritional guide on Shake Shack’s website, that one meal amounted to 1,700 calories. That’s 85% of the standard 2,000-calories-per-day diet.
This is also Obama’s second public helping of fries within the last month. Yum!
