I was wondering if Colossus eats a lot because of the fact that he can go without food or water in his steel form?

He probably eats a lot because he is 6'6, 225 pounds, and trains like crazy. The fact he doesn't need sustenance in steel form is just a property of his power.

I agree!

I imagine, aside from danger room repairs, Colossus's food bill was the most costly thing on Xavier's monthly expenses.

Well... an NFL lineman's calorie intake is around 5,000 calories a day... Michael Phelps (Olympic swimmer) has said his intake was up to 12,000 calories a day so I would guess that Colossus's intake is somewhere between the two. Something like 8,000 calories a day or three times a normal adult males. *shrugs*
