Even Obama Flips for Burgers

In case you weren't aware, the Obamas are normally quite the healthy-conscious family, but from time to time, just like us regular folks, they have cravings, too.

This past Friday, US President Barack Obama was spotted at Five Guys burger joint ordering up one of America's best-known exports, a burger. The President got himself a cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, jalapeno peppers, and mustard. Not to be outdone, First Lady Michelle Obama has been known to sneak out from time to time for a burger, herself!

Hey, at least they're both wise enough to avoid downing a "Whipper Burger" (Pastrami burger with two quarter pound beef patties with cheese topped off with sausage), a "Heart-Attack-On-A-Bun Burger"(A burger wrapped bacon topped with an egg and grated cheddar cheese) , or a "Camvan Carnage" (Two fried chicken breast burgers with eight strips of bacon, melted cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, ketchup, and four slices of butter on fried wheat bread), all courtesy of

Both the President and First Lady know that the key to staying fit and trim is to practice healthy eating habits and stay active, but it's totally fine to go out for a treat every once in a while to maintain some balance in your life!
