- Billionaires may splurge on multi million-dollar estates and luxury cars, but that doesn’t mean they’re digging deep in their wallets for the best and most expensive foods.
- Some tech billionaires are well-known for their outrageous and unhealthy eating habits.
- These are some of the richest in the tech world who have spoken publicly about their diets.
Just because billionaires have the money to pay for pricey personal chefs or high-end healthy foods doesn’t mean they’re actually adhering to diets that are good for them.
As you’ll see below, some of the richest people in tech have some pretty terrible — or bizarre — eating habits. While some experiment with the latest health fads, like Paleo diets and veganism, there are other tech billionaires who enjoy eating chocolate for breakfast or skip eating altogether for days.
So even though there are some wealthy techies whose diets you’ll want to copy to replicate their levels of success, there’s no guarantee they’ll put you in good health.
Here are some of the diets and foods that tech billionaires swear by:
Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Group, estimates he drinks 20 cups of tea a day. "I’m not sure how I’d survive without English Breakfast tea," Branson told the Daily Mail in 2016.

Branson said back in 2010 that he eats fruit salad and muesli for breakfast. Occasionally, he’ll also eat kipper, a herring-like fish.

Branson lives on his private Caribbean island, Necker Island. The billionaire fills his days with exercise, time with his family, and business meetings, which he prefers to schedule "over lunchtime" to help "lighten the mood." For dinner, he prefers to hold group meals "where stories are shared and ideas are born."
