Most vegetables? No, thanks.
In The Snowballhe tells biographer Alice Schroeder, "Broccoli, asparagus, and Brussels sprouts look to me like Chinese food crawling around on a plate. Cauliflower almost makes me sick. I eat carrots reluctantly. I don't like sweet potatoes. I don't even want to be close to a rhubarb, it makes me retch."
But Buffett says his "bad" eating habits aren't as absolutely awful as everyone thinks.
The Omaha World-Herald relates Buffett's response to a New Jersey nutritional dentist who had written a letter encouraging him to eat more healthy food and take nutritional supplements:
"My diet, though far from standard, is somewhat better than usually portrayed. I have a wonderful doctor who nudges me in your direction every time I see him. All in all, I’ve enjoyed remarkably good health — largely because of genes, of course — but also, I think, because I enjoy life so much every day."
He's also been exercising more in recent years.
Back in 2007, Buffett told CNBC that his doctor had given him a choice two years before: "Either you eat better or you exercise." Buffett said he chose exercise, the "lesser of two evils."
