  • Elvis was known for his unusual food cravings.

    Elvis Presley was known for strange food cravings such as toasted peanut butter and banana sandwiches. So much is known about his unusual eating habits that both cooking books and websites are dedicated to topic. Not regarded as a gourmet eater, Elvis' eating habits will be one of the many aspects of his life that linger on.

  • Elvis had a strange diet

    Elvis Presley had a strange diet. He would eat items such as a sandwich made of toasted bread, peanut butter and slices of banana, along with bacon. There was also a Fool's Gold Loaf, which is a hollowed out loaf of bread filled with an entire jar of peanut butter and grape jelly with a full pound of bacon.

  • We will never know for sure.

    Without documentation that outlines his daily diet over a period of years, we cannot say that Elvis had a strange diet. Maybe he ate some strange foods once in a while or acquired a taste for a particular combination of foods. That doesn't mean his entire diet was strange because we cannot know for certain what food he truly ate.

  • No, Elvis's diet was not particularly unusual.

    No, Elvis did not eat a particularly unusual diet by the standards of twentieth-century America. While dietitians' and nutritionists' recommendations are readily available (and increasingly extreme), we must remember that throughout history, very few people have eaten an "average" or an "ideal" diet at all or most times. Reports of Elvis's diet are within a realistic range of normal eating.
