Washington: Michelle Obama is definitely an ardent food lover but her eating habits have made her critics tag her as ‘hypocrite’ even as her campaign ‘Let’s Move’ warns against fast foods.

The US first lady was recently spotted going for a 1700-calorie outing where she ordered a burger, fries, chocolate milkshake and a Diet Coke at Shake Shack this summer.

This made her critics ecstatic, and they used the opportunity to hurl mild insults at her, calling her ‘hypocrite’, ‘fatso’ and for good measure, ‘fashion disaster’ on the anti-Obama blogs, the Politico reported.

The Lady’s moves are so closely scrutinized that an investigation has also been carried out by the Politico to find out what she has eaten at the 33 or more restaurants in the Washington area she has visited with her husband, family, friends or staff since January 2009.
