Trump, 71, is 6-foot-3 and his weight is 239 pounds, which is considered overweight by the medical community and just short of obese, Jackson said. He said that he recommended that the president eat a healthier diet, exercise regularly and lose 10 to 15 pounds.

The president's weight is 3 pounds higher than it was during the campaign in September 2016, according to a letter Trump released from his personal physician in New York, Harold N. Bornstein.

That letter reported his cholesterol levels were controlled with medication and were within the healthy range for a man his age. Jackson said that Trump's cholesterol level is now elevated, so he is increasing Trump's medication.

Trump's cholesterol of 223 is elevated and his low-density lipoprotein of 143 is borderline high. Jackson said he hopes to bring down the LDL or "bad cholesterol" score with diet, exercise and statin medication.
