Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey answered questions from Twitter users during a video for Wired. Among the many technical support questions he answered, such as how to verify if an account is a bot or how to obtain a verified blue mark, Dorsey answered a question about his famous and Spartan eating habits and lifestyle.
In relation to a CNBC article about Dorsey’s “well-being” habits, the user questioned three details about Dorsey’s weekly routine: that he meditates for two hours every day, that he spends 52 minutes each day entering and leaving a sauna and an ice bath, and he only eats five meals a week.
“Part of this is real, I try to meditate for two hours every day. I definitely don’t do sauna and ice bath every day, and I eat seven meals every week, I only eat dinner,” Dorsey replied.
This seems to represent a change in Dorsey’s diet since the last time he spoke publicly about it. In April of last year, Dorsey talked about her intermittent fasting in a podcast with Ben Greenfield, a physical fitness influencer who had previously tweeted inaccurate comments about vaccines that cause autism.
Dorsey told Greenfield that he only eats one meal a day during the work week and then fasts from Friday to Sunday at night.
“The first time I did it, like day three, I felt that I was hallucinating … It was a strange state. But as I did the following two times, I realized how much our days focus on meals and how: I had experience when I was fasting for much longer, how time really slowed, “Dorsey said at the time. The CNBC article cited this interview.
Dorsey’s comments provoked criticism that Silicon Valley food fashions, which sometimes fall under the umbrella of “biohacking,” closely resemble eating disorders.
