“You gotta get something to eat"

What a week! Hot dogs with David Cameron on a guys night out, a lunchtime stop at a barbeque and ribs restaurant where the president had possession of a takeout bag containing 2 slabs of baby back ribs and a brisket sandwich with fries.

And oh yes, there was also the Bison Wellington at state dinner this week.

Perhaps this has something to do with his advice about standing and eating.

President Barack Obama has taken to advising audience members who faint during his events: "Eat something."
“Folks do this all the time in my meetings, you’ve always got to eat before you stand for a long time.”
“All right, remember next time if you’re standing for a long time, you gotta eat,” he told the person. The audience laughed, apparently not taking him seriously enough. “No, no, it’s true,” the president said. “You gotta get something to eat."
