That wouldn't be any fun to discuss, though!

Don't apologize, Ducky! Personal anecdotes like that help those of us who don't have a given condition(?) better understand those who do!

Thank you for sharing it!

I'm not a huge fan of PB, but The King's particular choice isn't bad.

Following Elvis' culinary peccadilloes will most assurdly will make anyone a "Hunka hunka burnin' love"..

Tastes so good going down...

The Elvis Diet:

Breakfast (5 pm) - 5,000 calories
six large eggs cooked in butter with extra salt, 1lb of bacon, half a pound of sausages, 12 buttermilk biscuits
Dinner (10p) - 84,000 calories
Two "Fool's Gold" sandwiches [a jar of peanut butter, a jar of strawberry jam, one pound of crisp-fried bacon on a baguette x2]
Supper (4a) - 5,000 calories
5 double-hamburgers and deep-fried peanut butter, mashed banana sandwiches.
Misc. - other snacks as required between meals

Elvis total dietary intake in calories averaged a minimum of 94,000 *per day*. "Eventually this condition [consuming 94,000 calories worth of food per day] contributed to his death -- caused, as Graceland has it, by a heart attack or, as the coroner describes it in Arena, 'a terminal event on the commode'."

Bon Appetit...

You're so correct. That man had "it" on a level that will never be seen again, he was truly an amazing man. He is sorely missed.
I'm currently showing "Blue Hawaii" in my movie class.

There is no question Presley had "it", but, did the "it" cost him is humanness and was it the reason he went to such excesses with drugs and food? If he stayed a truck driver would he have suffered the same fate?

Another one is his former Son-in-Law Michael Jackson
