We have a 12 year old cat that has started a new behaviorial problem or maybe it is a symtom for something.
He wants to eat every 2 hours like clock work and that is 24 hours a day. of the 3 cats we have he was the only one that would not eat dry food so cat food it is. He should be the size of a lion now but is actully loosing weight/ maintaining. Any suggestions or comments

sounds like a thyroid problem or diabetes. I suggest you take him to a vet asap.

This something that should be looked into... could it be worms (do cats get worms like dogs do?)? In any case, head to the vet.

I have to agree with the symptoms pointing to a thyroid problem or diabetes. I'd take him to a vet asap.
