5 cans of Coca-Cola a day. Wow!



No, Buffett explained, “If I eat 2700 calories a day, a quarter of that is Coca-Cola. I drink at least five 12-ounce servings. I do it everyday.”




Investors in Berkshire Hathaway may feel relieved that the CEO isn’t addicted to Utz Potato Stix at every breakfast. “This morning, I had a bowl of chocolate chip ice cream,” Buffett says.




Asked to explain the high-sugar, high-salt diet that has somehow enabled him to remain seemingly healthy, Buffett replies: “I checked the actuarial tables, and the lowest death rate is among six-year-olds. So I decided to eat like a six-year-old.” The octogenarian adds, “It’s the safest course I can take.”


I really do like Warren Buffett. He still lives in a small house (for his status) in Nebraska and enjoys eating at the local diner.

It's crazy that he is able to stay so healthy at his age and eat what he does. I do think a big part of it, though, is he always seems to be in a light-hearted mood and is always so cheerful.

In survival situations, one's attitude is often one of the most important aspects in staying alive. Why wouldn't it be any different in the regular world?

Do six year olds have that diet? I sure hope not.
But good luck to the fella.
The cannibals are sure going to enjoy him when Mad Max times come lol.

Cute answer, but everyone knows that is a preposterous association. A six year-old body is in constant growth, whereas at 80, degeneration is a fact of life. Ice cream for breakfast sounds kind of fun. Wish I had some on hand.

In that case you would have to look at it in a different way.

Since he is 80, who cares what he eats or does. So long as he is not infringing on others or becoming a leech on society it doesn't bother me!

It comes from a properly balanced diet.

I was expecting that to be the topic of the thread.

When you have a lab full of genetic clones to harvest organs from, you can afford to drink a half-gallon of Coke per day. Meh. More power to him.

That is a hilarious story. I really think some people just live despite their vices. George Burns was one.

Likely his longevity is due to his following the average 6 yr old's regimen of 3 ounces per day of boogers ...
it's a little known health factoid followed by the 1%ers.

However, unlike the average six-year-old, Mr. Buffet does not have to harvest his own meal and instead has his personal asisstant retrieve it for him.

My six-year-old lives on raw foods and shakes. Occasionally she'll have peanut butter on Dave's bread or I'll slice her up some nuked taters but, other than that and a few other exceptions (she has a weakness for little bunny crackers for example) like when she visits her grandma, she doesn't eat any garbage. Because she's not my garbage can. She's my daughter. She's never had a soda in her life and thinks dried fruit is "too sugary". I'm not bragging, I'm just saying that if he drank 5 sodas a day like that at six years old, he wouldn't have made it to 80.

Maybe he should be eating like that, instead.

Sorry, just the implication of little kids actually eating like that set me off. I need to relax. Thiiiiiiiit.
