Food Fan Donald Trump In 'Very Good Health': Chief Physician

09 February 2019

"This afternoon at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the president participated in a second periodic physical examination", Sean P. Conley, DO, the physician to the president, said in a statement. Conley oversaw the four-hour exam, which involved 11 board-certified specialists.

Last January, Jackson said Trump's health was "excellent" compared to other 71-year-old American men in health results.

According to White House staffers, besides an incremental uptick in the amount of fish the President has consumed, he has largely adhered to his lifestyle of fast food and little exercise.

He did not go into detail except to say Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia.

Trump's physical exam past year found him to be one pound short of the criteria for obesity, and a diet and exercise regimen was created for him to follow.

"The President received a diet and exercise plan past year after his annual physical, but the President admits he has not followed it religiously", he said.

Trump loves the more sedate game of golf, but rides a cart between holes and has said that anything more strenuous is actually bad for your health.

Trump weighed 239 pounds (108 kg) at last year's physical.

Donald Trump gave a thumb's up, but did not respond to reporters'questions about how he was feeling. He makes no secret of preferring a diet of red meat, fast food and candies.

"He is more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part", Jackson, who created a weight loss plan for Trump, said at the time. Nor has he been known to enter the White House gym for a workout.

His physician at the time, Dr. Ronny Jackson, was peppered with multiple questions by media members about the president's physical and mental well-being. Last month, he invited the college football champion Clemson Tigers to the White House during the partial government shutdown.
