Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas got tsk-tsk’d by the food police captain herself last night after admitting to eating fast food.

Douglas and first lady Michelle Obama were on Jay Leno’s show, where the host asked the winning gymnast how she celebrated.

“We didn’t have time to celebrate,” Douglas said. “It was team finals and all-around finals and event finals after that. But after the competition, I splurged on a Egg McMuffin at McDonald’s.”

“Egg McMuffin?” Leno asked.

“Gabby, we don’t — don’t encourage him,” Obama said. “I’m sure it was on a whole-wheat McMuffin.”

“On a whole-wheat bun,” Leno said.

“Yes, yes,” Obama responded. “You’re setting me back, Gabby.”

“Sorry,” the teen medalist said.

The Egg McMuffin is actually one of the lowest calorie fast-food sandwiches at 300 calories.
