Donald Trump's relationship with food is long and frankly a little depressing for a billionaire.

He enjoys his steak well-done with ketchup which is phenomenally boring.

A restaurant in Syria was named after him but we doubt he would be a fan of falafel sandwiches - probably a bit too healthy.

On top of that, the pizza served in Trump tower looks absolutely disgusting.

Without question, his favourite food has to be McDonald's, which he quite frankly cannot get enough of.

It was kind of an open secret that the President regularly consumed the fast food but until now, no one knew quite how much he was eating.

Thanks to the upcoming book, Let Trump Be Trump by his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and former aide David Bossie, his extraordinary diet has been revealed.

Extracts from the book have been released in advance to the Washington Post where it is revealed that during the campaign trail, the timing of Trump's meals were handled with military like precision.

The Post quote the authors as saying:

The orchestrating and timing of Mr. Trump’s meals was as important as any other aspect of his march to the Presidency.

Furthermore, not only were these meals gargantuan in portion size, they were mostly made up of McDonald's sandwiches.

One serving from the fast-food giants included:

  • Two Big Macs.
  • Two Fillet-O-Fish
  • One chocolate malted milkshake

According to The Sun that equates to around 1,900 calories which is close to the daily recommended intake for an adult male (the limit being 2,230 calories).

It is also understood that McDonald's was not the only type of junk food on board his personal plane during the election.

Pizza, KFC, Diet Coke, crisps, pretzels, Vienna Fingers and Oreos were all stocked on the vehicle.

No chance of any fruit or salad, Donald?

In September 2016, Trump's personal doctor Harold N. Bornstein, stated that the President was overweight but was in overall "excellent physical health", to much laughter.

Trump later discussed his health on the The Dr. Oz Show where he proclaimed:

When you’re running for president, I think you have an obligation to be healthy.

I just don’t think you can do the work if you’re not healthy.

I don’t think you can represent the country properly if you’re not a healthy person.

Hmmm.
