Mark Zuckerberg may be training for an MMA bout, but the Meta founder still has cheat meals by his own telling.
Zuckerberg, who was seen training with UFC stars Alex Volkanovski and Israel Adesanya last month – and is preparing for a potential fight with tech rival Elon Musk – said on Threads that he needs around 4,000 calories a day with his workout routine.
And the 39-year-old has been fueling himself at the golden arches with a humongous order.
’20 nuggets, a quarter pounder, large fries, Oreo McFlurry, apple pie, and maybe some side cheeseburgers for later?’ he said of his McDonald’s order on Threads.
The revelation led UFC fighter Mike David to speak out against Zuckerberg’s diet.

‘You’re in camp! No McDonalds,’ he wrote.
But the billionaire claimed he needed the calories – while admitting the food was simply tasty as well.
‘Not cutting weight so I need ~4000 calories a day to offset all the activity. And it’s so delicious,’ he said.
Zuckerberg appeared to agree to Musk’s proposal of a ‘cage match’ in June, telling the Tesla founder to ‘send me location.’
It’s unclear if the fight will actually take place, though Zuckerberg seems to be taking his training seriously.
He looked ripped in a post-workout training photo with Volkanovski and Adesanya, and the former gave Zuckerberg rave reviews after working out with him.
‘I guarantee you, you guys would be very surprised,’ he told TMZ.
‘I’m telling you he’s serious. I don’t know how serious Elon is, but I’m telling you, he’s training!’
‘I mean you can see it that he’s in shape but he really is in shape,’ Volkanovski added. ‘It’s not just looks, he really is, mate. He trains, he’s pretty athletic, he’s coordinated and he’s committed.’
Zuckerberg has even taken his training an extra step by constructing an octagon in his backyard – to the apparent dismay of his wife, Priscilla Chan.

Musk had a grueling training session with Georges St Pierre (red shorts) earlier in July
In an Instagram post, Zuckerberg showed a WhatsApp message exchange between the pair – with the billionaire saying that the constructed ring ‘looks awesome’.
Chan disagreed, responding by saying, ‘I have been working on that grass for two years.’
For his part, Musk has also endured a few grueling sessions with Georges St. Pierre, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest fighters in MMA history.
And if the fight does happen, UFC boss Dana White would expect to promote it.
‘It would break all pay-per-view records,’ he told TMZ.
