Elon Musk has revealed that he has adopted intermittent fasting, just weeks after the billionaire was subjected to online shaming after photos of him lounging shirtless on a yacht near Mykonos surfaced.
According to a blog post by Johns Hopkins Medicine, intermittent fasting is "an eating plan that switches between fasting and eating on a regular schedule."
Musk mentioned his use of the "Zero" fitness app, which he described as "quite good." The app bills itself as a resource that will help users "unlock the power of intermittent fasting to lose weight and improve your metabolic health."
Musk sparked outrage on social media in July after Page Six obtained exclusive photos of him looking doughy while relaxing on a luxury yacht with William Morris Endeavor boss Ari Emanuel and his new bride Sarah Staudinger.
The world’s richest individual poked fun at himself on Twitter as the pictures began to appear in memes.
Musk was also chastised by his father, South African engineer Errol Musk, who said his son was "eating badly" and suggested he take diet pills to lose weight.
Elon Musk responded by admitting that he wanted to start exercising more frequently.
“I gotta work out and be in better shape. I actually don’t really like working out, but I gotta do it.”
