 In some give contexts I think you could pick one of these:

 

You eat like crazy,
You eat like a horse,
You eat like a hungry bear,
You eat like a Panda (in quantity, not that you eat bamboo shoots!)

Why do you eat to eat like an elephant?
Why do you eat like a freak? (this is not one that eats too much, but that eats too much
of one single type of food. Somebody obssessed with eating just pizza or one living
just on french fries etc).

 

 

  Beware the inflamatory likelyhood of these sentences, tough.   I mean, don´t use it with your spouse or else you can sleep in the dog´s house for a week.  Or worse!

 

  Dale´s post was spot on, and more polite. Tough the matter is inflamatory in nature! Be careful not getting seen commenting things like these about the boss´ children at the table...
