Bill Clinton Still Watching His Waistline: Report


First Posted: 08/30/2010 8:23 am Updated: 05/25/2011 5:30 pm

Bill Clinton is still keeping an eye on his waistline, Page Six reports. The former president stopped by Babette's in East Hampton last week and ordered, essentially, the diet plate. A source said, "[Bill] was sitting in a corner banquette, eating a veggie burger and a mountain of vegetables. He was with Hillary, who had a falafel plate, and her mother, Dorothy Rodham, who ate French toast."

In April, Chelsea asked her dad to lose 15 pounds by the time her wedding rolled around. At the time, Bill explained to the New York Post, Chelsea "told me the other day, she said, 'Dad the only thing you gotta do is walk me down the aisle and you need to look good.' So I said 'Well, what's your definition?' And she said: 'Oh, about 15 pounds.' So I'm halfway home."

It seems that Chelsea's vegan eating habits rubbed off on dad--Bill lost not 15, but 23 pounds, thanks to a vegetarian diet. And judging from what was on his plate at Babette's, perhaps Clinton has decided to stick with the no-meat plan for a while.
