First Ladies — they’re just like us!
Michelle Obama — President Barack Obama‘s wife, obviously — says she “loves” eating French fries.
But the 45-year-old does admit she have to work hard to stay in shape.
“I try to have no absolute no’s,” she tells Prevention magazine in its November issue.
“I love French fries, I like a good burger, and I like pie. And that’s okay. I would be depressed if I felt I could never eat the things that I love.”
“There are some great bakers [in the White House kitchen],” Obama adds. “If you like pie, it will be there always — at every meal. So for me, it’s about setting up new boundaries. I had some challenges with that, but I’m balancing out.”
So how does Michelle maintain those famously buff arms? “I enjoy arm exercises because you can see what it’s hitting,” she explains.
“I’ve had more time [to work out] as my kids have gotten older. There was a period, actually right before the campaign started up, that I was really in tip-top shape. I was really there. And then my husband ran for president.”
“I also don’t want my girls to be obsessed about food,” Michelle adds. “We don’t have a ‘no junk food’ rule — I just want them to think about their choices. When my older daughter asks, ‘Can I have pie?’ I’ll say, ‘Did you have it yesterday? Well, what do you think?’ And she’ll come to the conclusion that, ‘You know, you’re right, I shouldn’t eat pie every night.’”
