When the Obama family first took to the big stage as Presdient and First Family, the media was all abuzz at the toned physique of Michelle Obama. Many questions surrounded her physical fitness regimen and how she got her amazingly toned arms.

Now, the media is crying foul upon learning of a recent visit to the Washington D.C. Shake Shack for burger and fries!

Bloggers are calling her a hypocrite since she's making such a noise with the "Let's Move" campaign, an initiative to curb childhood obesity. Michelle endulged herself by ordering a burger, fries, chocolate shake and Diet Coke at the new Shake Shack in Washington D.C.

The Washington Post calculated the amount to be about 1,700 calories.

So what!?

“Good Morning America” pointed out that last year Michelle Obama told ABC News: “I love burgers and fries, you know? And I love ice cream and cake. So do most kids. We’re not talking about a lifestyle that excludes all that. That’s the fun of being a kid. That’s the fun of being a human.”

For a woman who exercises regularly and has a well balanced diet, is is so bad that she indulgences herself? I don't think so. This is the message we should be getting. Balance.
