Anthony was put into foster care at the age of 13. His traumatic experiences while in the system led him to overeat in search of comfort, resulting in rapid weight gain. His diet soon spiraled out of control.
Every day, Anthony was taking in nearly 10,000 calories. For breakfast, Anthony would devour two foot-long meatball subs with a two-liter bottle of Coke. His lunch consisted of a large KFC burger box meal and a four-pack of Magnum ice creams. Then, for dinner, Anthony would eat two large pizzas and yet another two-liter bottle of Coke.
