Elvis is a living legend. People say that when one is dead he is dead but it is totally the opposite in Elvis’ case. He is alive and still living among all of us. His fan counting is still increasing with every single year. His songs and dance style is something that truly makes his fans go crazy for him. There are a lot of different people commenting on the fact as to how his downfall started. Some say that it was his getting into the habit of drugs and alcohol that made him decline at a very fast pace, but with looking a bit further it was found that he was eating truly unhealthy.
It was shocking to learn that Elvis was into a very bad eating routine. At that time there was no such concept of healthy diet and eating patterns as it is now. Let us look as to what are the different meals that he used to have throughout the day. At breakfast he used to have six large eggs cooked in butter with extra salt, one pound of bacon and a half pound of sausages and 12 buttermilk biscuits. At dinner he used to have two Fool’s Gold sandwiches with a jar of peanut butter and a jar of strawberry jam, as well as one pound of crisp fried bacon on a baguette in double serving of the entire dinner menu.
At supper Elvis had five double hamburgers and deep fried peanut butter and mashed banana sandwiches that he loved. He also used to have different snacks between the meal times. It is interesting to know that at breakfast he used to have about 5000 calories of food and at dinner he had about 84,000 calories of food and at supper about another 5000 calories. All these figures combine to about 94,000 calories in total. The diet with such high calories caused his death at such an early age along with alcohol and drugs. It should be learnt from him that we need to take care of what we eat, which can help prevent us from getting into any serious medical ailments.
