Back in the day, Elon Musk reportedly challenged himself to live only on a dollar for every single day back when he was 17. This was stated in a previous interview that happened a couple of years ago where Elon Musk revealed his diet as well as how he was able to do this.
Elon Musk looks at food as fuel saying that if there was ever a way that he did not need to eat but could still work more, he would choose not to eat. He stated that all he wants is to get the nutrients even without having to sit down for a single meal. As the main staples, it is known that Elon Musk's diet consists of pasta, green peppers, hot dogs, and oranges.
A particular article on The Ladders tells how a certain individual (Ryan Luke) chose to recreate the Elon Musk dollar diet and stated that before starting the whole Elon Musk challenge, the individual drank a single cup of coffee every single day. When the diet started, the individual experienced serious caffeine withdrawal headaches for a series of three days.
Before the Elon Musk diet started, the individual was eating three whole large meals every single day and was also very rarely hungry. After a whole week of being on Elon Musk's diet, the individual was feeling both drained and hungry for most of the time. This was due to the individuals' normal calorie consumption at about 2,500+ per day and with the Elon Musk diet, it had to be cut down to between 1,000 to 1,500.
Good or bad effect?
A benefit of the Elon Musk diet is that the individual was able to lose about two pounds but unfortunately, this was still not a healthy way to lose weight since the individual felt that he was starving himself. Although the individual was able to do the diet challenge, it was found that his health had suffered due to constantly eating low quality food as well as not intaking enough calories.
Elon Musk's very own diet has changed every since the diet he used to live by in 1989. Currently, his routine consists of a cup of coffee in the morning and also a small lunch that can be finished in about five minutes or even less. His dinner, however, usually involves one of his own favorite dishes which include either American barbeque, or even French cuisine.
Elon Musk reportedly does not watch what he eats anymore and only exercises maybe one or two times a week. For a man like him who is extremely busy, it currently seems like food itself is getting in the way of his own progress.
