Trump Dumps Fast Food for Healthier Fare: Report
Trump is apparently not bowled over by taco bowls anymore, per reports.   (Twitter)

President Trump has become somewhat infamous for his fast-food penchant (who can forget his Cinco de Mayo taco bowl?) and overall nonchalance toward self-care. Axios, which talked to aides who stumped with Trump during the campaign, says the now-70-year-old seemed to consider fast food a staple and ate "like a man who's slept through the last 50 years of public-health warnings." His devil-may-care approach apparently included throwing back plenty of diet soda, getting just a few hours of sleep every night, and squeezing in some time on the golf greens as his only form of exercise.

But an aide says Trump, who already refrains from smoking or drinking alcohol, is trying to do better these days on the eating front now that he's in the Oval Office. Fast food has reportedly fallen off the map, replaced by the steaks Trump still loves, which are supplemented by seafood, salads, and vegetables as sides. As for Oreos: An ex-aide says the president cut them loose from his snack list long ago, after the cookie's parent company moved some production lines from the US to Mexico. Read about some of Trump's other alleged past and present noshing habits at Axios. (Read more President Trump stories.)
