Taking advice from America on diet is like taking advice from China on how to make safe toys... advice from Greece on how to budget... or advice from France on how to fight Germans.
It's so absurd you can't help but laugh at it.
So Italy must've been rolling like dough during Michelle Obama's luxury trip to the country last month -- paid for by you, of course -- because along with packing her usual array of overpriced clothing, she brought along her holier-than-thou diet advice.
While at the American School there -- which educates Italian kids along with Americans, and children from dozens of other countries -- Obama had the nerve to deliver a lecture about the supposed success of her healthy eating program.
She even bragged about how kids just LOVE her new lunches. And that, as the Italians would say, is mucchio di stronzate.
Yeah, it's a load of bull -- and the proof is in the low-cal, skim-milk vanilla pudding because despite Michelle O's claims to the contrary, American kids aren't getting thinner.
That's only true if you cook the numbers, as Obama cronies at the CDC did when they declared that child obesity rates have fallen.
As it turns out, you can only make that claim if you start the analysis from 2003, a year the child obesity numbers spiked so suddenly -- and then fell again so quickly -- that any serious scientist can see there was a problem with the data.
The REAL numbers, from an expert analysis released last year, show that American kids aren't only fatter than ever, but that the rate of extreme obesity among children is higher than ever.
In other words, her much-ballyhooed lunch program has been like everything else to come out of this White House: an unmitigated and highly expensive disaster that they have to lie about.
Meanwhile, the Italians she's lecturing about healthy eating have one of the lowest obesity rates and highest longevity rates on the planet.
If you want healthy kids and grandkids -- if you want to get healthy yourself -- forget what Obama's serving and make like the Italians: only SMALL portions of pasta, lots of full-fat cheese and fresh meats and plenty of hand gestures at every meal.
