Michelle Obama has only been the First Lady since January, but her toned arms have already become legendary. We caught up with fitness expert to the stars Kacy Duke and top New York City nutritionist and doctor Jeffrey Morrison, M.D., to get the insider scoop on Mrs. Obama fitness.
“What I really like about Michelle is that she is happy with the body that she has,” says Duke, observing that the First Lady is not a size 2. “So many people start [their weight loss] from a place of self-hate. Michelle says, ‘This is who I am and I’m going to make sure I take the time to honor myself,’” Duke adds. Honoring your body first is essential before starting the process of transformation, says Duke.
