Posted on 09/15/2011 3:13:40 PM PDT by Lmo56
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Calorie by calorie, first lady Michelle Obama is chipping away at big portions and unhealthy food in an effort to help America slim down.
In the two and a half years since she announced her campaign to curb childhood obesity, Mrs. Obama has stood alongside Wal-Mart, Olive Garden and many other food companies as they have announced improvements to their recipes - fewer calories, less sodium, better children's menus.
The changes are small steps, in most cases. Fried foods and french fries will still be on the menu, though enticing pictures of those foods may be gone. High-sodium soups, which many consumers prefer, will still be on the grocery aisle. But the amount of sodium in each can will gradually decrease in some cases, and the taste of their low-sodium variety will be improved.

" ... that concludes my remarks. Now excuse me whilst I belly up to my Shake Shack Stack, Fries, Milkshake, and Soda @ 1750 calories ... "
FYI: She actually DID eat this recently ...
Wookies eat a lot this time of year.
Makes sense to me.
Is she going to go into hibernation?
Nah, probably just some more vacations in Spain and Hawaii.
Meantime, when I got a takeout meal at McDonald’s a few weeks ago, I got only half as many fries, but for the same price. Thanks a bunch, Muchelle.
Is there anything they don’t want to control? (Besides the deficit).
I really dont like that type of talk and I dont think it has a place at FR.
What did Chewbacca ever do to warrant being compared to that beast?
This was from another post, but it applies here as well.
another nice thing about eating in kosher restaurants is that they won’t go for Obama’s shtick
In next month’s issue Michelle reveals how she keeps her ass size to only one zip code.
But YOU little people will stop eating them!!
when see starts going to the fried chicken places to complain, i’ll know she’s serious :P
Surely this is a joke. Moochelle should fix herself before taking on the rest of the country. That fix should take her a lifetime.
What is FLOTUS’ BMI anyway?
LOL. You almost had me. Good one!!!
Don't they have mirrors in the White House, or are they all in Obama's room above his prayer rug?
How can she be that stupid to not see how fat she is and how ridiculous her preaching sounds.
Leave us, our kids, and our restaurants alone!
And don’t forget tamales. You should never get between Michelle and a tamal...
I heard that she dropped a fork in a restaurant and it started to go around her like a moon. And in one classroom she went to, when she turned around, her a$$ erased the blackboards.
Excellent news that they’ve solved that problem.
A bigger problem is the impact the huge weather system surrounding her posterior is having on the weather systems in places she visits. Some climatologists believe the recent earthquakes have been caused by her excesssive world travel.
Jewish delis are the best. I’ll have a turkey and chopped liver on rye with cold slaw, please.
Off camera her most frequent comment to the media is “You Gonna Eat Those?”
It has to be kosher. If it is operated by reform Jews, it most likely WILL support Obama.
Who the f is this woman to dictate what we eat????? I can’t believe this is even an issue....And restaurants are stupid enough to accommidate???? She’s like a Hitler run amuck, crazy bitch that she is.....She should go on Weight Watchers and shut the hell up.....
...and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel's table.
Say Michelle, they're playing your song:
"Who let the dogs out..."
1 Kings 21.23 And of Jezebel also spake the LORD, saying, The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.
We have Weintraub's in Worcester, but I doubt it compares with a New York deli. Still, it's not bad.
You are right. Chewy was one of the good guys.
Probably, I am sorry say.
Yes they did.I'm SHOCKED.
Darden Restaurants gets break on health-care reform law November 10, 2010|By Sandra Pedicini, Orlando
SentinelOrlando-based Darden Restaurants is getting a break on part of the health-care reform law requiring companies to raise significantly annual coverage limits for low-cost insurance plans starting next year.
Darden is among more than 100 companies nationwide that have received one-year waivers, including McDonald's, Ruby Tuesday and Cigna, which writes health insurance plans.
Even THIS woman wants the wookie to keep her mouth shut!
Looove it!!!! :-)))))
God that burger, fries, and milkshake look YUMMMMY!!!
Good call on Darden Restaurants getting that Obamacare waiver.
The CEO of the place appears to be a friend of Obama. So now he takes 10% of his salt out over 5 years and gets a free national commercial courtesy of Michelle?
Corporate cronyism at its best.
I just had pizza and french fries for dinner.
