Warren Buffett eats the kind of diet that First Lady Michelle Obama goes out of her way to caution against. Buffett, for example, is rarely happier than when he sits down with a sausage McMuffin at McDonald’s. In fact, he’s been known to order two of them at a time.
The famous investor likes to invest in what makes people happy. Take his longstanding stake in Coca-Cola. Coke adds life, goes the slogan, even if a whole bunch of activists and medical professionals say it might do the opposite, contributing to diabetes and childhood obesity. “Literally one-quarter of all the calories I’ve consumed in the last 30 years have been Coca-Cola,” Warren Buffett said this week in an interview on CNBC. There can be little doubt the Sage of Omaha got those numbers right. On a side note, Warren Buffett is 84.
