7 Shocking Eating Addictions From TLC’s ‘My Strange Addiction’ [VIDEOS]

Shows on TLC makes me feel so much better about my life.  The network has strayed so marvelously far from its original purpose as The Learning Channel.  Today’s fare of extreme hoarders and other carnival side-show caliber reality series scratches an itch I didn’t even know I had.

My Strange Addiction

Earlier this year, the TV show ‘My Strange Addiction’ (Wednesdays on TLC) featured a woman who has one of the strangest addictions we have ever seen. Adele is a 30-year-old who likes to eat couch cushions. She doesn’t just chew on them, she actually eats them. When added all up, she has eaten a combined total of seven couches and two chairs in her lifetime.

We were so fascinated by this truly strange addiction that we decided to look for more footage of unusual eating addictions that they’ve had on the show. We certainly found them.

You can watch all 7 of them after the jump.
