Default I eat 33,000 calories a day-on TLC

On Wed. night, I watched a show on TLC called "I eat 33,000 calories a day. It was a show about 4 morbidly obese people and what they eat each day. In the show, the talked about how much two of them spent on food each day. Ok, they cannot work, so they must be on disability--so how do they pay for so much food. The story said one guy spent roughly $240 a day for food. I know SS disabliltiy is around $1,400 a month-so how can they afford to eat so much.

The story showed that they all have family members living with them, and they cook and bring to food to them. The people in the show were addicted to food, each person weighing in from 360 to 700 pounds. Dont their family members realiaze that they are killing these people with food.

I was going to write TLC an e-mail and ask this same question. But there is no place on their web site to contact them.

So, where do they get the money for such an expensive habit?
