Okay, so what exactly is the Warren Buffett diet?
The man doesn’t actually have an official diet book or anything, but I’ve recently stumbled upon an older article online that gives us a bit of insight on the brilliant man’s eating habits.
A brief history of Warren Buffett:
For those of you who have been living under a rock, Warren Buffett is considered as one of the world’s most successful investors. He is currently the Chairman and CEO of BerkShire Hathaway which is a huge conglomerate that currently owns a multitude of companies and assets ranging from Geico Insurance to See’s Candy.
Oh and BTW, the man is currently the third richest man in the world with a net worth of $50 billion dollar. Not bad for some life accomplishments.
Warren Buffett diet = 2500 calories a day. That’s it.
When I think about rich people, the first 3 things that come to mind are:
1) 5 star meals prepared by a private fancy schmancy chef.
2) Tailor-made clothing made from penguin silk.
3) A butler that you can piggy-back on to anywhere in your house.
But apparently, Warren Buffett isn’t like most rich people. This man doesn’t like caviar and $100 slices of sashimi.
Instead, he enjoys junk food more and eats everything from Cheetos and Coke to big juicy steaks from his hometown in Omaha,Nebraska. Even at his age, he doesn’t really view food as unhealthy or healthy, he just views it as energy. Warren Buffet was quoted saying:
If I eat more than 2500 calories a day, I’m going to gain weight. If I eat less than 2500 a day I’m going to lose weight. I’d like to choose the 2500 calories that I eat, and if, you know, if I–it’s just a question of how many calories you stuff in your mouth, basically, and there’s a lot of ways to do it. And if somebody told me that I live a year longer by eating nothing but broccoli and asparagus from now on, I would just say, it would just feel like I’m–every day will seem like as long. I’ll stick with–I’ll stick with the Cheetos and the Coke. 
The man is right. Why would want to eat foods like broccoli and asparagus if you don’t enjoy it. Life is too short to eat foods you don’t like, so go out and eat a bacon-wrapped doughnut right now (like seriously, go now, I’ll wait).
As you can see, its not about what you eat, but how much you eat. Take that as a lesson from one of the most successful men in the entire world.
Applying it to you
That’s the Warren Buffett diet in a nutshell. So when you’re dieting, watch your calories first and foremost . Its as simple as that, and luckily, it doesn’t get any harder.
P.S. And if you were wondering, the man has absolutely ZERO health problems.
