Here is a view of the President’s abs. You can see he needs a lot of work:

These are excerpts from a June 16th column by Maureen Dowd in The New York Times:

…He (President Barack Obama) clearly feels strongly about nutrition and fat. The child who looks a little chubby in that famous picture of himself with his long-lost father in Hawaii grew up to be extremely careful about eating and drinking in a healthy way.

The willowy commander in chief urges out-of-shape and overweight aides to go to his Chicago trainer who now works part-time at the White House — and even offers to treat especially recalcitrant cases.

On a date night this spring with Michelle at the Georgetown restaurant Citronelle, the president showed how calorie-conscious he was when, over a three-hour meal, he managed the impossible feat of nibbling only one French fry. “He wants to stay skinny, you know?” chef Michel Richard mischievously told “Extra” afterward.

On the campaign, Mr. Obama seemed an organic proselytizer for healthier eating, telling black audiences to stop serving their kids cold Popeyes chicken and “give ’em some breakfast.”

It was easy to imagine a scenario where the president and his body man, Reggie Love, would have their own early-morning TV show called “Downward Facing Dawn,” coaxing a reluctant nation into a regimen of yoga and yogurt.

When he talked to the American Medical Association on Monday, the president again urged Americans to make their children “step away from the video games and spend more time playing outside” and cut “down on all the junk food that’s fueling an epidemic of obesity.”

…Michelle said she had wanted the organic garden as a way to underscore the need for better nutrition.

“Nearly a third of the children in this country are either overweight or obese, and a third will suffer from diabetes at some point in their lifetime,” she said. “In Hispanic and African-American communities, those numbers climb even higher so that nearly half of the children in those communities will suffer the same fate.”

She said America has become so unhealthy because too many kids “are not eating right and they’re not moving their bodies at all.”
