William the Conqueror was an impressive performance in every way. Not only by his military success, bringing England under Norman reign in the 11th century, but also because of his gigantic appearance. In order to lose some pounds of his massive body weight the king came up with an ingenious idea: an all alcohol diet. Although as you will soon read this wasn’t too effective, he was far ahead of his time with this ambitious plan. As recent research has proven red wine can help you lose weight or stay slim since it blocks fat cells from developing. King William the First of England simply stopped eating and argued that if he’d only take in liquids the kilo’s must come flying off. Beats the hell out of a water diet.
