Chris Christie needs to live low carb
Christie gets angry over Doc who questions his weight
Not everyone is a “fan” of politicians these days (except those who don’t know better), but this recent “flame war” between an Arizona Doctor and NJ Governor Chris Christie cracked me up.
We all know Chris Christie isn’t exactly in great shape (although he calls himself the “healthiest fat guy you’ve ever seen”). He became insulted when former White House Doctor Connie Mariano was concerned if he ever became our President: “It’s almost like a time bomb waiting to happen unless he addresses those issues before running for office.”
Christie, in his usually stylistic way, threw a barb back at the critical doc: “I find it fascinating that a doctor in Arizona who has never met me, never examined me, never reviewed my medical history or records, knows nothing about my family history, could make a diagnosis from 2,400 miles away. She must be a genius.”
That was a cop-out in my opinion. Obesity has only become an issue in the last few decades – as “modern technology” and other evils have ruined our food supply. I’m certainly not laying blame on Christie for knowingly fattening himself up – a lot of people are ignorant of the true facts of nutrition after repetitive misinformation. And others suffer from cognitive dissonance, and refuse to open their minds as to how they’ve been misinformed.
Give me one year as Christie’s nutritional consultant – and I’d BET he’d be at least 100lbs. lighter, and even healthier than he claims he is now (only if he stays on plan).
Oh – and check out this great post from Jimmy Moore’s Living La Vida Low Carb Blog – where he shows how CLUELESS the populous has become. Counting calories, excess orange juice, and blatant lies from the giant food monopolies of the world. We’re on a downward spiral for sure.
Do you think Chris Christie needs to live low carb like I do? Or is blaming genetics, family history or anything else a fair argument?
