He can't get out of bed, he can't go to the store to buy anything, seems like it would be pretty easy to make him lose weight by not feeding him. I don't even want to know what's involved with his other bodily functions.

How could someone see a person so miserable yet keep feeding him? That seems to me to be some sort of abuse.
I just had to look this up. This might be the story you read.

"The 55-year-old former construction worker ate two-foot long submarine sandwiches and an entire large pizza all by himself every week for years."

I am guessing they mean daily. I could make that lunch and supper for a 5 day work week.

I think after a certain point it just becomes mental, kinda like they just throw in the towel.

Sad story.
