Mark Zuckerberg is eating 4000 calories a day to be able to keep up with BJJ

Mark Zuckerberg  has revealed an astonishing daily calorie intake of around 4,000 calories to support his rigorous fitness routine, which includes activities like jujitsu, MMA sessions, strength training, and mobility work.

In a Threads post on Monday, Zuckerberg detailed his need for substantial caloric intake to balance the energy expended during his intense workout regime. The tech mogul is not shying away from indulging in high-calorie meals, even from unexpected sources like McDonald’s.

When McDonald’s asked its followers about their preferred orders on Threads, Zuckerberg’s response raised eyebrows. “20 nuggets, a quarter pounder, large fries, Oreo McFlurry, apple pie, and maybe some cheeseburgers for later?” he quipped.

However, UFC star Mike Davis, who also happens to be a friend of Zuckerberg, quickly intervened. “You’re in camp! No McDonald’s,” Davis retorted, reminding Zuckerberg of his ongoing training for a potential showdown with fellow billionaire Elon Musk. Despite the reprimand, Zuckerberg justified his food choices by asserting that his current fitness program necessitates such a high caloric intake.

While it may seem unusual for a CEO to admit consuming such a diet, high-calorie meal plans are not uncommon among elite athletes. Athletes often incorporate calorie-dense foods, including those considered less healthy, to swiftly replenish energy stores.

This strategy is reminiscent of Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, who famously consumed around 10,000 calories daily to fuel his grueling training routine. His diet included hefty portions of pasta, energy drinks, and even pizza, allowing him to power through countless laps in the pool.

Although Zuckerberg’s fitness routine may not mirror Phelps’, it signifies his effort to cultivate a more robust public image. The CEO is striving to project an image of toughness, commitment to fitness, and approachability.

As for whether Zuckerberg actually proceeded with his McDonald’s order, Meta has yet to provide confirmation. The intriguing blend of tech leadership and fitness enthusiasm has captured attention, emphasizing the evolving nature of the tech industry’s top figures and their multidimensional pursuits.
