Successful people follow certain daily rituals that allow them to stay focused and free their minds to think about more important things. But some of these habits, especially eating habits, are pretty strange.
For example, Hollywood actor Nicholas Cage only eats animals that he considers “decent sex”. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs only ate carrots for so long that his skin turned orange. Business mogul Howard Hughes used spoons with a protective sleeve that contained two layers of toilet paper and cellophane tape.

This year I’ll be basically a vegetarian because I’ll only be eating the meat from animals that I kill myself. It’s been a great experience so far. I’m eating a lot healthier and learned a lot about sustainable practices and animal husbandry. ”The following year, the Facebook CEO dropped those rules.
