US President Donald Trump, famous for his love of fast food, does not exercise or follow his diet plan, White House staffers said ahead of his annual physical exam.
The 72-year-old President, who has high cholesterol and has disputed reports that he has a common form of heart disease, was given a diet and exercise plan over a year ago during his first physical since taking the Oval Office. But he doesn't follow it.
"The President received a diet and exercise plan last year after his annual physical, but he admits he has not followed it religiously," Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary Hogan Gidley told CNN.
Nearly a dozen White House officials and sources close to Trump said he is reluctant to change his eating habits and has not set foot in the White House fitness room, calling exercise a "waste of the energy".
CNN cited another source as saying that the President still orders fast food to be delivered to the White House and enjoys well done red meat dinners.
