After being photographed shirtless and a little out of shape in the Greek islands in July, Elon Musk says he’s tried intermittent fasting and now feels healthier.
He also said he used a weight loss app called Zero and responded to a user’s tweet asking if he lifts weights.
Yes, I lift a little…

In May, Musk tweeted that he uses “flight as an opportunity to fast” and that the only food on board his jet was “fruit & nuts”.
Intermittent fasting can take several approaches, but often means eating only between certain hours of the day, such as 12 noon to 8 p.m.
Tesla CEO was recently criticized by his father in a interview on Australian radio saying he told his son to take a weight loss supplement. Errol Musk claimed the supplement had helped him lose weight.
Elon Musk said earlier this month: the Full Send podcast that he didn’t enjoy working out, but that “I need to train and be in better shape.”
Musk said his morning routine consisted of waking up at about 9 a.m. and picking up his smartphone. “I go from looking at my phone when I wake up, to exercising for at least 20 minutes and then looking at my phone,” he added.
Speaking on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast in May 2020, Musk said he liked “good food” and could do without exercise, but admitted he had a personal trainer at the time.
He also said that while he wasn’t much into running, he watched TV while walking on a treadmill.
Musk is embroiled in legal battle with Twitter after he tried walking away from a $44 billion acquisition. The social platform said its action was “invalid and unlawful.” His legal team recently won a win as the judge overseeing the lawsuit ordered Twitter to provide some additional details demanded by Musk.
