People have a lot of questions about Twitter, and about CEO Jack Dorsey in particular, and on Tuesday, the 43-year-old social media leader tried to answer some of them. Wired has the video interview, and one of the questions that came in via the platform he oversees wanted to know about Dorsey's dietary habits. "Is this article satire?" a user asked last April regarding some claims made about Dorsey in a CNBC article, including that he eats only five meals a week (he supposedly fasts all weekend), has long daily meditation sessions, and spends nearly an hour each day alternating being in the sauna and an ice bath.

While Dorsey immediately dismissed the sauna/ice bath claims—"I definitely do not do a sauna and ice bath every day"—he does admit to trying to put in two hours of meditation daily. As for the fasting, that meal count has been upped: He says he eats seven meals a week. "Just dinner," he says. Per CNBC, he has said in the past that that dinner is a "really big meal" that includes protein via chicken, fish, or steak, as well as "lots of greens." (Read more Jack Dorsey stories.)
