Key Words: Here’s why Trump’s fast-food fix never worried Corey Lewandowski

The fact that President Donald Trump loves fast food isn’t new, but in his new book, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski reveals the eyebrow-raising order that was apparently the president’s go-to meal on the campaign trail: Two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish sandwiches and a chocolate shake from McDonald’s.

But if you think that sounds unhealthy, there’s good(?) news:

“He never ate the bread, which is the important part. . . . Was I concerned? No.”

“It was really, you know, a couple of fish sandwiches and a couple pieces of meat and a drink,” Lewandowski said Thursday during an interview on CNN. “He was so busy campaigning, we didn’t have time to sit down for a meal.”

Lewandowski, whose book “Let Trump Be Trump” came out this week, said Trump would scarf down the meal on Air Force One after campaign appearances.

Going sans bun doesn’t exactly make it a healthy meal though. According to McDonald’s own nutrition calculator, that meal would add up to 2,430 calories, 111 grams of total fat and 3,480 mg of sodium.

According to the USDA, a man of Trump’s age should only be getting 2,000 to 2,200 calories per day. The Livestrong Foundation recommends a daily intake of 44 to 77 grams of total fat (though that’s based on a 2,000-calorie day), and the FDA recommends less than 2,300 mg of sodium per day.

This week, McDonald’s Corp. MCD, -0.33%   stock got an upgrade from Jeffries for its efforts to become “a more nimble, contemporary” business. Shares are up 45% for the past year, outpacing the Dow’s DJIA, +0.29%   25.6% gain and the S&P 500’s SPX, +0.29%   18.9% increase,

In completely unrelated news, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday that Trump will undergo a regular physical examination at Walter Reed hospital early next year, and the evaluation will be released to the public.
