Christie Diet: Daily Milk, Easy on the Veggies

Like anyone who’s had weight loss surgery, Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., has had to adjust his diet.

For the Garden State’s top politician, that means no breakfast and easy on the vegetables, Politico reports.

In an interview with People magazine that will hit newsstands Friday, Christie said he starts his day with his beverage of choice, one that contains not a drop of caffeine.

“Not a coffee or Diet Coke guy, even in law school,” Christie said.

“I’ve never needed caffeine.”

Christie says he begins each morning with a coffee mug full of milk.

Since having lap-band surgery earlier this year, “I don’t have the urge to eat breakfast anymore,” Christie said.

Christie, who earlier this month said the decision to have weight-loss surgery in February was “nobody’s business but mine,” said that he takes questions about the issue only “because I don’t want people to feel self-conscious about whatever challenges they have.”

He doesn’t want to be a “proselytizer about this,” Christie said.

Christie also puts on the brakes when it comes to spouting the virtues of vegetables.

“I’m not nearly as interested in food as I used to be,” Christie said.

“But that hasn’t all of a sudden made me a huge vegetable fan.”

The only vegetables he will eat, according to the article, are green beans, lettuce and cucumbers.
