The CEO of both Twitter and Square, @jack, recently sat down (we assume he didn’t have the energy to stand) for a taping of the Ben Greenfield Fitness: Diet, Fat Loss and Performance podcast and revealed some of his intense health habits. Sure, he mediates and journals, but he also doesn’t eat. You read that correctly.
At a time when #SelfCare is trending, Jack Dorsey is taking it a step further. He revealed that he not only walks 10 miles roundtrip to work every day, or working under an infrared lightbulb to work up a sweat, but he has taken intermittent fasting to the next level, because the dude skips food all together on the weekends.
During the week, he eats a single between 6:30 p.m. and 9 p.m..
“During the day, I feel so much more focused… You have this very focused point of mind in terms of this drive,” Dorsey told Greenfield, adding that his sleep also improved with the meal changes and that the extra time he saves by not eating during the day allows him “to focus more on what my day is.”
Got so much done today. Feels great

From Friday night through Sunday, the fun really begins, because Dorsey avoids eating, consisting of only water.
The first time I did it, like day three, I felt like I was hallucinating. It was a weird state to be in. But as I did it the next two times, it just became so apparent to me how much of our days are centered around meals and how—the experience I had was when I was fasting for much longer, how time really slowed down.
Don’t try this at home, kids. Your body needs fuel, just like anything else that expends energy. Just Tweeting alone requires some calorie intake. Right, Jack?
