A morbidly obese man who weighs 707lbs has revealed he spends his day gorging on junk food and playing video games naked, admitting that he will likely eat himself to death.
Casey King, 34, is sharing his story on the new season of the TLC reality series Family by the Ton, which follows families who are in a dire need to lose weight. On Wednesday night’s premiere, he revealed he is unemployed and living with his father, Danny, who has to wait on him hand and foot.
‘I will just eat till I’m dead,’ he told the camera. ‘A normal day for me is to wake up around 12, figure out something I am going to eat immediately, [and then] TV, video games, bed. It’s not a lot of activity.’
Not only does Casey play videos games all day, but he also does it in the nude because his clothes don’t fit him.
‘It’s hot in Georgia, and all my clothing is restricting and tight, so I just sit there naked, free as can be and no one bothers me — door’s shut, we’re good,’ he explained.
The gaming community has become a safe space for him because it allows him to escape his everyday life.
‘I’m accepted in all those virtual reality worlds and the gaming world I’m in,’ he said. ‘No one sees me. That is my outside. That is my world that I can be the Casey I want to be, but not be judged on my weight.’
Casey admitted that his life hasn’t turned out the way he thought it would.
