The premise of the film is simple, the methods John Doe uses to kill his victims is highly complex. This death is the first of the seven, and as such is fairly mainstream.
Mills and Somerset arrive in a dingy apartment crawling with cockroaches and flies, and in the middle of the kitchen is a porker of a man, with his face buried in a bowl of spaghetti. He is dead. Like most of the deaths in this film, the details of what happened is told through retrospective accounts or pathologist reports.
Clearly this man liked to eat, but i don't think he counted on an insane serial killer forcing him to scoff endless bowls of spaghetti until his stomach was about to burst. Noone can physically eat themselves to death, and so to facilitate his demise, Doe helps the gluttony victim with a strategic blow to the stomach which causes his stomach to burst and haemorrhage. We find this out from the pathologist.
