Summary: From eating ice cream for breakfast to eating only carrots, the rich and the famous millionaires do have some weird diets and uncommon food fetishes that will surprise you….guaranteed!

We often find ourselves looking to search for some healthy food and lifestyle changes to keep ourselves in the best shape. A healthy diet is essential for good health and nutrition. It not only acts as a fuel to your body to keep it loaded with the essential energy but also helps you against many chronic non-communicable diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

Eating a variety of foods and consuming less salt, sugars, and saturated and industrially-produced trans-fats are essential for a healthy diet. And when we look at the rich-and-the-famous millionaires, most people imagine the life of a billionaire to include the endless ability to demand the finest things in life, including the ability to eat some of the world's most delectable items and enjoy the healthiest, most expensive meals prepared by a personal chef.

However, the truth is far different from what we all assume. In this article, we are going to share some of the most strange diet fetishes of these millionaires that may sound bizarre. Are you ready to be surprised?

1. Sir Richard Branson

This high-powered CEO of Virgin Group is famous for his contributions to the world of music, entertainment, retail, and space exploration has led him to acquire wealth and notoriety across the globe. He was knighted at Buckingham palace, controls over 400 various ventures, and sits at the top of the corporate food chain, yet when it comes to the food for his consumption; he has one strange habit.

Branson is addicted to tea. He is known to drink as many as 20 cups of tea each day. He has also confessed in one of his interviews with The Daily Meal that he can’t survive without a cup of English breakfast tea.

2. Elon Musk

Elon Musk works for an excessive 90 hours a week and one would assume that the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX follows a strict diet to keep him healthy, active, and alert. On the contrary, Elon Musk skips his morning breakfast altogether and instead snacks on Mars chocolate bars instead. He relishes his lunch and puts more emphasis on his dinner plans if he is not working.

3. Warren Buffett

The chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway are also one of the most successful investors in the world. However, his food choices will shock you. Instead of having a healthy breakfast, Buffett opts to have ice cream for breakfast, shoestring French fries for lunch, and drinks at least 5 Coca-Colas per day.

He also prefers eating McDonald's for breakfast every day and never spends more than $3.17 as he told CNBC.

4. Mark Zuckerberg

Mark Zuckerberg, the $104 billion man, is the founder of Facebook and one of the richest men in the world. While many others in this position of extreme wealth would engage the finest chefs to create the best cuisine that money can buy, Zuckerman has opted for a much different path when it comes to the food he eats, and it's not for the faint at heart. He went through a phase in 2011 during which time he would only eat the meat of animals he had hunted.

5. Bill Gates

With an astounding net worth of $137 billion Bill Gates keeping a healthy diet and lifestyle wouldn’t be so difficult. With that kind of money, he can get delightful meals cooked by the world’s best chefs. But instead of binging on healthy food, Gates keeps things simple, and quite unhealthy. He admits to being addicted to Diet Coke and drinks the beverage throughout the day. He's rarely spotted without a Diet Coke in his hands. Along with a diet coke, he takes breakfast from McDonald's.

6. Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs was known to go to extremes not only in his work but also when it came to his eating habits. The founder of Apple worth $10.2 billion was far more successful when it comes to technology than his ability to eat a balanced diet. He would sometimes just eat one or two foods at a time, for several weeks, and then he dabbled in being a 'fruitarian' for a while. Once, he had eaten only carrots and apples due to which his skin also turned orange. He would also fast using the days of not eating to create feelings of euphoria and ecstasy.

For these successful millionaires, many would imagine a personal attendant being on call at all times to cook up a storm of food requests on demand, and it would seem likely that caviar and other expensive food items would be the daily norm. That is not the case. These millionaires have quite weird eating habits that can’t be considered healthy!
