Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey: 'I eat seven meals every week, just dinner' – CNBC, CNBC


When Twitter and Square CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey shared hisrigorous“wellness” routine on a podcast in March, his habit of eating one meal a day, and sometimes going all weekend without eating, raised eyebrows.

At the time, he told podcast host Ben Greenfield that so-calledintermittent fastinghelps him focus and “has been a new dimension.”

On Tuesday, there was an update to his controversial fasting habits.

These days, Dorsey eats “seven meals every week, just dinner,” he toldWiredin an interview posted on YouTube, which likely means Dorsey is no longer skipping food on weekends.

According to his previous comments, dinner for Dorsey is “a really big meal” that consists of protein like fish, chicken or steak, and “a lot of greens,” including arugula or spinach salad, asparagus or Brussels sprouts. “And then, I have mixed berries as a dessert, maybe some dark chocolate,” he said in March. A moderately active man in their early (s requires an estimated 2,********************** (calories a day, according to theDietary Guidelines for Americans.)

Thoughintermittent fasting– in which you eat for a set window of six to eight hours and fast for the remainder – has become trendy in Silicon valley and among celebrities likeTerry CrewsandJennifer Aniston, there hasn’t been enough research on humans to determine whether it’s sustainable or healthy long term. And experts agree that fasts lasting longer than hours can bedangerous, especially for individuals who have specific health conditions or take certain medications, according to theNational Institutes of Health.

Dorsey also told Wired he tries to meditate for two hours every single day.

Dorsey practices an ancient form of meditation called “vipassana,” which is “extremely painful and demanding physical and mental work,” he said in (*********************************************.

Vipassana requires that people sit cross-legged for (to) **************************************************** minutes without moving. “[I] nstead of unconsciously reacting to feelings of pain or pleasure, consciously observe that all pain and pleasure aren’t permanent, and will ultimately pass and dissolve away,” Dorsey previously tweeted.

In the past, Dorsey has also talked about alternating – minute saunas and three-minute ice baths for an hour, telling Greenfield that the habit “has had probably the largest impact just in terms of how I feel but also mental clarity. ” (Somestudiessuggest that using a saunaregularly may improve your mood. Butmore researchneeds to be done on the effects of switching between extreme cold and heat.)

However Dorsey clarified to Wired: “I definitely do not do a sauna and ice bath every day.”

Dorsey isn’t the only tech billionaire to have eccentric eating habits.Apple co-founder Steve Jobsused to fast for periods of time, and would only eat fruit, nuts, seeds and grains, according to Walter Isaacson’s biography, “Steve Jobs.” And Microsoft co-founderBill Gates would eat powdered Tang packetsin the early days of the company, because he did not want to take time away from working to eat.
