In a podcast with fitness personality Ben Greenfield, Dorsey said the punishing health regimen helped him “stay sharper”. “…You have this very focused point of mind… I can go to bed and actually knock out in 10 minutes.” Dorsey’s unconventional eating habits (five meals a week) has sparked a debate on social media.
“These aren’t ‘wellness hacks’. These are disordered eating behaviours…,” tweeted one user.
Dorsey, who also does two-hour meditation daily, had tweeted in January about his eating routine, drawing criticism.
“Been playing with fasting for some time. Biggest thing I notice is how much time slows down. The day feels so much longer when not broken up by breakfast/lunch/dinner.” he tweeted.
One user replied: “Disordered eating to approximate the suffering induced by poverty… Playing is so much fun”.
