Trump gains weight, now considered obese; cholesterol down

    WASHINGTON --- President Donald Trump has put on some pounds and is now officially considered obese. The White House on Thursday released results of his most recent physical, revealing that his Body Mass Index is now 30.4. That's based on the fact that he's now carrying 243 pounds on his 6-foot, 3-inch frame. That's up from 236 pounds in September 2016 before he became president. An index rating of 30 is the level at which doctors consider someone obese under this commonly used formula. About 40 percent of Americans are obese, and that raises their risk for heart disease, diabetes, stroke and some forms of cancer. Trump doesn't drink alcohol or smoke, but...Keep on reading: Trump gains weight, now considered obese; cholesterol down.....»»
