The tech boss, said, During the day, I feel so much more focused–You have this very focused point of mind in terms of this drive,’ Dorsey said about having his only meal between 6.30pm and 9pm.
‘I’ll go from Friday ’til Sunday. I won’t have dinner on Friday. I won’t have dinner or any meal on Saturday. And the first time I’ll eat will be Sunday evening. I’ve done that three times now where I do [an] extended fast where I’m just drinking water.
Dorsey usually enjoys fish, chicken, or steak with a salad or a side of vegetables and has berries or dark chocolate for dessert.
Having good Business evaluation,Dorsey who does seven minutes of exercise per day using the Seven app, gets additional exercise in by walking briskly for an hour and 15 minutes every day to work, allowing him to soak up some vitamin D through sun rays.
‘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.’
Having Business rules, Dorsey said the only supplements he takes are ‘a multivitamin and a lot of vitamin C’ at dinnertime and he first heard about the idea on a Wim Hof podcast two years ago.
