So from then on the Memphis Mafia member wouldn't have the vegetable to eat before going out to Graceland to hang out with The King.

Aside from onions, Elvis couldn't stand the smell of fish cooking and banned it from the Memphis mansion.

But when it came to the food the star did like, he would obsessively eat the same thing over and over.

And in one case that meant having his beloved meatloaf and mashed potatoes every day for dinner for six months.
