They say we are what we eat, yet if you look at what some famous people ate, you would wonder.

For instance, Charlie Chaplin had a very difficult childhood and ended up famous and very rich. Yet one of his favorite foods was tripe, the stomach of a cow. Not only that but tripe stinks.

Then there is Howard Winstone, a World Featherweight boxing champion. He trained hard and could have any food indulgence he desired. His favorite was dipping biscuits in his tea.

Hitler on the other hand loved Baklava. Though his other vice was reckoned to have been an over indulgence of chocolate. Some reckon it was up to seven pounds of it a day.

And who would have thought St. Francis of Assisi of all people, indulged in the medieval equivalent of KFC! Fried chicken legs were his favorite.

So, are we what we eat? Check out some famous people below and see what you think.
