Elon Musk Discloses His Fitness Secret
Elon Musk, who is 51 years old, told the world how he stays in shape when a Twitter user posted a picture of him at the Tesla AI event and said he looked "ripped and healthy."
"Hey, Elon Musk, what's your secret?" the Twitter user asked. You look great, healthy, fit, and ripped. Lifting weights? Eating right?"
The Tesla CEO gave a one-word answer that ruled out weightlifting and eating healthy as factors that helped him lose weight. Instead, he wrote "Fasting."
Musk was likely referring about his new habit of intermittent fasting, which he started after a "good friend" told him to do so.
Intermittent fasting is the practise of going without food for long stretches of time. People who practice intermittent fasting usually go without food for 6 to 10 hours daily.
Last month, the richest person in the world said that he lost 9 kgs by fasting sometimes and that he now "feels much healthier."
Musk said that the "zero fasting app" that he uses to monitor the food that he consumes as "pretty good" in a recent tweet.
"I'll tell you what's working for me every once in a while in case you find it useful, From time to time," he said.
In response to Musk, a user joked that Musk's "good friend" might be the
former CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey
, who also does intermittent fasting.
