Warren Buffett is a successful businessman with a net worth of around $76 billion. He is 87 years old. No one tells a man in his position what he should or shouldn't eat, and the way he eats has become legendary in his circle. A liter of Coke every day. Ice cream. Fast food for most meals. Bob Bryan decided to try eating like that for a week, just to see what it would be like.
There were some basic ground rules — eat three meals a day, don't drink alcohol, and avoid vegetables.
Overall, I just tried to maintain the general attitude by which the man himself defines his diet.
"I checked the actuarial tables, and the lowest death rate is among 6-year-olds, so I decided to eat like a 6-year-old," Buffett told Fortune. "It's the safest course I can take."
There appears to be a large gap in the logic in that statement. Buffett does not ignore logic, but he eats as he wants. Bryan did his best over a week to emulate Buffett's diet, and found it more difficult each day. He posted each day's menu, calorie consumption, and effect on his mood at Business Insider. -via Digg
