President Donald Trump has been the subject of plenty of speculation lately over his eating habits. This comes more than one year after Trump told Dr. Oz that he would like to lose 15 to 20 pounds off of his then 236-pound frame, as reported by the Inquisitr. With Trump’s alleged favorite meals including the fast food meals he ate on the campaign trail – minus the bread on Big Macs and Filet-o-Fish sandwiches – rumors had swirled that Trump had been turning to ungodly amounts of fast food as of late.

Even as Trump returned to the White House with First Lady Melania Trump and Barron Trump on Monday, January 1, the president’s tight-fitting New Year’s Eve tuxedo made him the center of weight-gain buzz on Twitter. Now, instead of slowing down, the online buzz about Trump’s eating habits has surged. According to the below tweet from the popular Twitter account called “Rogue WH Snr Advisor,” which claims to have direct insider knowledge from the West Wing of the White House, Trump allegedly made a New Year’s resolution to “eat a whole lot better” in 2018.

However, the same source reports that Trump has already failed his mission to improve his eating habits, only two days into 2018. Trump reportedly already “engulfed multiple funnel cakes today.”

As seen in the below photo, certain funnel cakes come in generous portions, with powdered sugar on top. Often sold at amusement parks, funnel cakes are usually loaded with sugar and fat. According to My Fitness Pal, one funnel cake can contain 760 calories, 44 grams of fat, 80 grams of carbohydrates, 16 grams of sugar, and eight grams of protein.

While the protein can represent a healthy nutrient, three funnel cakes in one day would bring Trump close to or above the daily recommended calories for the entire day, not to mention the high amount of sugar and fat contained in the cakes.
