Carrying around some additional weight since the beginning of the year?
Well, you can thank the President.
Now critics of President Trump have one more thing they can blame him for as a dietitian is advising clients how to shed those extra “POTUS pounds.”

Julie Upton shared “five tips” to losing unwanted weight gained because of stress caused by President Trump in an article titled, “Is Trump Making You Fat?” in U.S. News and World Report on Monday .

“I’ve eaten an additional 16,625 calories since President Trump was sworn into office,” Upton wrote. “At least, that’s what my calculations based on my recent (and unusual) 4.75-pound weight gain tell me.”
But Upton claimed she is not the only one to notice the change.

“Many of my clients, friends and colleagues are complaining about POTUS pounds. They wake up each morning wondering which crazy tweet the president has fired off, which ally he’s offended, which latest conspiracy theory he’s peddling or which executive order he’ll sign next,” Upton continued. “Their increased anxiety triggers stress eating.”
So, in addition to everything else he has done wrong since day one, according to the left, Trump is also the cause of stress leading to overeating.
For goodness’ sake, even Barbra Streisand is a victim.
Donald Trump is making me gain weight. I start the day with liquids, but after the morning news, I eat pancakes smothered in maple syrup!

Wasn’t she supposed to move somewhere else if Trump was elected?
Producer and director, Judd Apatow, was barely into 2017 when he told the New York Times about his Trump-related issue.
“There’s so many things that are hard to hear every day that you do want to have some Oreos,” he said. “Like people say, what do you invest in during the Trump era? I feel like, Hostess Cakes. Most of us are just scared and eating ice cream.”
News title, “Is Trump Making You Fat?” I’ve known all along my lack of self control was NOT to blame for wanting a snicker bar over salad! 😉

Upton’s guide purports to help those who find that “White House worries are causing you, too, to reach for pancakes, chocolate, ice cream or other feel-good-foods.”
Her advice included planning meals and getting plenty of sleep.
“Instead of staying up late to watch the ‘The Rachel Maddow Show’ or listen to Jake Tapper give you yet another reason to worry, hit the sack early,” she wrote, adding that alcohol should also be avoided.
“Whether you’re frustrated by baseless surveillance allegations or panicked about the future of the arts, I understand the desire for a strong drink to unwind and forget about it all. But resist!” she warned.
Upton concluded her tips with advice on staying physically active and deep breathing.
“Take 10 deep belly breaths for an instant calming effect,” she wrote. “And remember: You can’t control the president’s actions, but you can govern how you respond.”
Now that’s a bit of advice that many can benefit from.
