America just doesn’t see Mike Pompeo less because the Trump administration is no longer in the White House. We see less of the former Secretary of State because he is literally less – more precisely £ 90.

The former CIA director has faced many difficult situations during his long career, but he is reluctant to talk about weight loss for fear of regaining all the pounds he has lost. However, in an exclusive interview with The Post, he said how he did it and why.

It all started on June 14, 2021, when Pompeo stepped on the scales and saw that for the first time in his life, he was only £ 300 away.

The next morning he woke up and said to his wife, Susan, “Today is the day.”

Pompeo said he lost 90 pounds in six months on his own with diet and exercise.

“I started exercising almost every day, not every day, and I started eating right and I was just starting to lose weight,” she said.

Pompeo, 58, said he invested in a home gym in his basement with a few dumbbells and an elliptical machine, where The Post photographed him this week. “I went there five or six times a week and tried to stay for half an hour or more. And it wasn’t a scientific thing. There was no coach, no dietitian. It was just me. “

Pompeo now tries to exercise “almost every day” using an elliptical machine and weights.

Pompeo said he gained weight in 2010 when he was first elected to Congress as a representative from Kansas.

“Although the truth is that losing weight has been a lifelong struggle for me.”

To finally be healthy, Pompeo said, he had to be in the right mindset.

“For me, it’s about getting the job done right and being disciplined enough,” he said, adding that he has applied the process to all high-pressure positions in government, but so far his health has improved. iga emas.

The cheeseburgers, carbs, and desserts that stood next to his computer disappeared while he worked through the night or traveled long distances with him around the world.

But the change in diet hasn’t changed the family restaurant tradition – IHOP is still Pompeos ’favorite dish, but the former secretary now chooses a much healthier dish instead of ordering pumpkin pancakes with syrup.

“We’re still going there as a family – it’s important not to lose those traditions,” he said. Now we get egg whites and turkey bacon, ”he said.

Mike Pompeo, who was photographed with his wife Susan and son Nick, served as Trump’s secretary of state from 2018 to 2021 - when he mostly ate a cheeseburger on his desk.

“A place to gather food for our family. We are Italian and we love to gather around a good meal of pasta, bread, cheese and sweets. We still enjoy this great meal with family and friends, only I’m going to be the guy who says “yes, I’ll get a salad,” he said with a laugh.

“It was a good cycle instead of the bad one I had and I managed to lose £ 90 in six months.”

A California citizen who was the first to graduate from his class at West Point said he used the excuse of an old foot disease because he could not lose weight in the past.

“I’ve lost almost a hundred pounds in 10-11 years – these years coincided with injuries to my leg – so I told myself I was gaining a lot of weight,” she said. and added that nothing definite had happened to him. foot “The joint is outdated.”

His battle is recognized by most Americans: a Gallup poll in January 2022 showed that in the last five years, 41 percent of adults in the U.S. considered themselves overweight, up from 36 percent in the previous five years. p. Gallup notes that his findings differ from federal health statistics, which show that nearly three-quarters of Americans are overweight or obese.

Pompeo said he understood that. “No one wants to admit they’re overweight or overweight, even if all the evidence is different.”

His weight loss has come with a lot of rumors on social media – and Pompeo says none of the comments are particularly complimentary. “The records were so disgusting or just misleading that they assumed I had health problems in my neck or had cancer,” he said.

“No one called me and I really said,‘ Hey, what happened? “

But friends like West Point classmate David Urban did just that. The two men met in November at an Army-Air Force match in Dallas – along with their alumni in 1986 – for a 35th-grade reunion.

The first thing Trump told candidate Urban Pompeo was how great he looked. He then said he was not surprised he did.

“You don’t finish West Point, you don’t even finish first in your class at West Point, you can’t concentrate.”

Urban, who was in the state from time to time with Pompeo, said he saw the work affect him physically.

“He is not the first person to enter politics and become obese due to job demand. It travels all over the world, flying 13, 14 hours in different places, different time zones. It is extremely difficult to maintain any routine, let alone an exercise regimen. You put yourself behind the scenes, ”he said.

“When he went to Europe for the 100th anniversary of the truce, I traveled with him and he did the whole flight,” he added.

When he traveled, Pompeo said, there were former secretaries who would take to the streets if they finished their meetings at 7:30 or 8 and have a nice dinner at a luxury restaurant. But he is not. “You can ask anyone on my team who knew exactly what I was doing: a cheeseburger from room service. I went back to the room, kept working, and ate my cheeseburger. That was my lifestyle.

“When you work and eat, you just keep working and eating.”

Pompeo served briefly as director of the Central Intelligence Agency from 2018 to 2021, and after three terms in Congress, as the 70th Secretary of State in the Trump administration. The former Army officer, who studied at Harvard Law School, is a former businessman who turned his mother-born Kansas into his home state in 1998.

Since leaving the administration, Pompeo has signed up as a Acesparks correspondent, serves as a senior adviser on global affairs at the American Center for Law and Justice, and heads the Calvary PAC, a conservative organization dedicated to electing conservative candidates to the U.S. House. Senate. He and Susan now call Chantilly, Va. At home.

Pompeo associates weight loss with his wife, Susan, son Nick, and soon-to-be daughter-in-law Rachel, all of whom “supported my efforts to stay healthy.”

Meanwhile, Pompeo said he hopes his trip will inspire others to lose weight who are struggling with obesity. “It’s difficult and it’s not permanent. There’s no guarantee I’m going to be the way I am now, but if you do, you can do it if you understand that good things can happen. “

The support of his wife, son Nick, and future bride, Rachel, really helped.

“The biggest benefit I have on this trip is my very supportive wife and family,” he said. “Everyone supported my desire to be healthy, which was the main focus.”

Pompeo said his son Nick wants to see his daughter-in-law Rachel and grandchildren.
Pompeo said he wants his son Nick to be with his grandchildren, who he hopes will be with his daughter-in-law Rachel.

Another rumor on social media is that Pompeo dropped the pound sterling to prepare for the 2024 presidential election. He laughs at the offer.

“The truth is, I’m preparing for 2044 and I hope to be in 2054.”

Why exactly those years? Grandchildren, she says hopefully.

“My son will get married in July, and I hope to be healthy and that the Lord will bless us as grandchildren for a long time to come. I shouldn’t have told you about it, ”he said with a laugh, knowing that he would be a little sad that he had let go of his true feelings.

“My clothes fit better and I have more power,” she said. But in the end, “I want to be there for my family and many of my grandchildren.”
