So what does the leader of Facebook do on his spare time?

Well, according to Fortune, Mark Zuckerberg has a new “personal challenge” in life.

He has taken to killing goats, pigs, and chickens—so he can be thankful for the food he eats.

“The only meat I’m eating is from animals I’ve killed myself,” the Facebook CEO told Fortune.

Apparently, Zuckerberg believes in New Year’s Resolutions because the billionaire sets a new goal for himself ever year.

Last year, he learned Mandarin, and in 2009, he wore a tie every day, according to the report.  But this year he has taken it to a whole new level.

“I’m eating a lot healthier foods. And I’ve learned a lot about sustainable farming and raising of animals,” he told Fortune. “It’s easy to take the food we eat for granted when we can eat good things every day.”

And how does he do it exactly?

“He cut the throat of the goat with a knife, which is the most kind way to do it,” his friend Jesse Cool said.

Zuckerberg’s first kill, however, wasn’t as gruesome.  He started with a lobster, which he boiled alive.

“The most interesting thing was how special it felt to eat it after having not eaten any seafood or meat in a while,” is how Zuckerberg described his first bite after eating the lobster to Fortune.
