Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ diet secrets

“In an industry where so many leaders resemble talking sides of beef, Jobs’ trim figure is noticeable,” Brian Caulfield reports for Forbes.

“What’s his secret? The skinny, so to speak, on the Apple campus is Jobs’ gaunt frame says as much about his diet as his health. Jobs lunches with the troops in the Cupertino, Calif.-based company’s cafeteria–a place packed with the likes of fresh sushi and Smart Water,” Caulfield reports.

“And while Apple employees eat healthy, Jobs takes it to an extreme, one employee says, eating dark green vegetables such as broccoli and asparagus, grilled or steamed. Jobs has been a vegetarian for years but his enthusiasm for green may have taken on an extra dimension since his brush with cancer. Jobs has surgery in 2004 to treat pancreatic cancer, and, again, earlier this year, according to The New York Times, to address ‘a problem that was contributing to a loss of weight.’ The veg-heavy diet, however, likely will not help him pack on any pounds. ‘No wonder he’s cranky all the time,’ one Apple insider says,” Caulfield reports.

“Jobs’ diet is only the latest example of a high-profile technologist using mind to master matter. It’s one of the reasons technologists so often end up overweight,” Caulfield reports.

Wanna lose weight? Expend more calories than you take in. It works like magic.


  1. Just imagine how much Ballmer would weigh if he didn’t dance around and sweat so much. He burns tons of calories, yet still would roll if he tripped.
    Steve Jobs should try my wife’s angel hair pasta salad to pack on a few carbs…it’s awesome…the secret ingredient is not obvious and she would have to kill you if you found out.

  2. The full article is great. Roger Craig is from my hometown so it’s nice to hear he’s still doing well after football. And Steve’s diet sounds tasty but I couldn’t do the veg diet alone. I came thisclose to working at Google earlier this year and the cafeteria was definitely one of the perks.

  3. Broccoli has been shown to eradicate cancer. Broccoli sprouts are an excellent preventative to put in salads. Add lots of veggies, brewers yeast, eggs, different types of veggie ‘meat’, avocados, nuts, baked potato, big chef salad with yummy dressing — weight loss won’t be a problem. Also eat lots of bananas and raw organic cream. Stir-fry on quinoa. Scrumptious vegetarian chimichangas. Easy to get and stay fat as a vegetarian!

  4. Carbs store themselves as fat if you don’t burn them. Eat your carbs early in the day and not late in the day. For muscle tone, combine protein and carbs as fuel for muscle. Add a fiber/vegetable/milk and take a multivitamin a couple times a week. The GNC miracle concepts are taking billions from idiots.

  5. This is too much… far too much. Steve’s just a CEO. What are you guys gonna be covering next?
    Whether or not his underwears are too tight, and causing his blood pressure to rise like a helicopter?
    What a pity! It goes a lot further than when Pope John Paul II was sick and near death… if you get it.
    Guys we have survived 2 world wars, and Japan 2 atomic bomb explosions… so Apple will survive without Steve.

  6. Jobs got Whippled!!!: surgically contorted alimentary canal to save his freaking life, elongate his…deserved life. pages/pancreas resection/whipple operation.html


    What is a Whipple operation?

    In the Whipple operation the head of the pancreas, a portion of the bile duct, the gallbladder and the duodenum is removed. Occasionally a portion of the stomach may also be removed. After removal of these structures the remaining pancreas, bile duct and the intestine is sutured back into the intestine to direct the gastrointestinal secretions back into the gut.

    I THINK,

    which is an option

    YOU opt,

    that if I had MY alimentary canal [mouth-to-anus]


    I WOULD HAVE SOME difficult literally GUT-WRENCHING [BUT, do-able] FREAKING…issues.

    People, humans,

    – access info


    – engage logic

    – shut the freak UP!!!

    I thank you.
