A physician in The Villages has weighed in on two obese presidential candidates.
Dr. Gabe Mirkin of the Village of Bridgeport at Laurel Valley was interviewed this week by RadarOnline.com on the weight and health of former President Donald Trump and his on-again-off-again friend and adviser, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
“Both of them look pretty heavy,” Mirkin told RadarOnline.com. “I see abdominal obesity on both of them!”
Mirkin, a columnist for Villages-News.com, was sought out by RadarOnline.com because of his expertise and many years writing about health and wellness.
Mirkin told RadarOnline.com that Christie appears to tip the scales at about 300 pounds while Trump weighs in at an overweight 250.
“Trump right now looks like he has a big belly and so does Christie,” Mirkin said in the interview. “But Christie is in big trouble. His picture shows severe abdominal obesity. The fact that he stores fat primarily in his belly is very concerning because that means he has fat in his liver — and a fatty liver causes diabetes.”
Mirkin preaches that a healthy diet and regular exercise will extend your life and make it much more enjoyable.
