President Trump’s health is a topic of conversation lately as his annual physical is coming up. More

The Marine One helicopter returned him to the White House from the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in the Washington suburb of Bethesda after a full four hours of prodding, poking and testing.

Jackson reported that Trump, at 6-foot-3, was slightly overweight at 239 pounds past year.

President Donald Trump was declared "in very good health" by the White House physician on Friday after four hours of examinations in what amounted to a test of whether his doctor's order that he follow a healthier diet has paid dividends.

Jackson's assessment of the President's health came under fire from medical professionals, including from within the White House's medical unit.

It remained unclear how numerous test results would eventually be made public. Conley said Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, meaning he did not have a colonoscopy.

Instagram's record breaking egg uses fame for good
As pieces of the broken shell began to fall away, the advertisement urged, "If you're struggling too, talk to someone". On Jan. 13, the anonymous egg broke Instagram's record for likes, and at this writing has almost 52 million.

"The President received a diet and exercise plan a year ago after his annual physical, but the President admits he has not followed it religiously", said Hogan Gidley, the principal deputy White House press secretary.

No further details on the president's health have been released yet.

Not for Trump the basketball sessions that Barack Obama sweated through in the White House, or the bike rides of George W Bush. Last year, everything from the president's cholesterol levels (high) to weight (too high at 239 pounds, or 108 kilograms) was released. Trump loves fast food and had ordered burgers, french fries and pizza when he invited the college football champion Clemson Tigers to the White House last month.

"He is more enthusiastic about the diet part than the exercise part", Jackson, who created a weight loss plan for Trump, said at the time. But the president was directed to try to lose 10 to 15 pounds (4.5 to 6.8 kg) by eating better and starting to exercise.

According to a CNN report, the physical is expected to be conducted by Dr. Sean Conley who took over for Ronny Jackson a year ago.
