Warren Buffet drinks six cokes a day.

The chief executive recently came clean with his unconventional drinking habit. “I’m one-quarter Coca-Cola,” the Buffett told Fortune. “If I eat 2,700 calories a day, a quarter of that is Coca-Cola. I drink at least five 12-ounce servings. I do it every day.” His high-sugar, high-salt diet mirrors that of a six-year-old. Occasionally, the multi-billionaire will indulge in a special treat and crack open a Cherry Coke.

Bill Gates drinks poop water.

Ok, so the Microsoft frontman isn't exactly lapping up water from a toilet bowl. Gates has backed a project that will turn wastewater into potable drinking for countries which lack adequate water sources. The Janicki Omniprocessor could revolutionize conditions in many developing countries. And has one of America's richest actually taste tested this so called "poo-water" himself? Absolutely.

Mariah Carey followed an all purple diet.

We know that foods rich in color are usually rich in antioxidants. And no we're not talking M&Ms. The diva songstress reportedly turned to a diet rich in purple foods while trying to shed baby weight after the birth of twins Moroccan and Monroe in 2013. Antioxidants aren't necessarily associated with weight loss but they have been known to strengthen cell walls, collagen, and reduce cholesterol.

Hugh Hefner only eats Playboy food.

For a man who seems to appreciate the finer things in life, it seems unusual that Hugh Hefner sticks to a pretty restrictive diet. The media mogul reportedly only eats foods that have been prepared for him especially at the Playboy mansion-- even when dining out, Hef takes his own food to restaurants. Some of his favorites include lamb chops, mashed potatoes and fried chicken.

The Jolie-Pitts snack on bugs.

Plenty of people around the world eat bugs as a main source of high-quality protein with a lower environmental impact than traditional Western sources like beef and pork. So it's probably not too surprising that one of the world's most famous and well traveled families has developed a taste for exotic foods. Angelina Jolie told E! that her children love snacking on fried crickets and "eat them like Doritos."
