Do Mukbangers Gain Weight?

Yes, many people do gain weight when they creating mukbang videos because it’s harder to stay active while you’re making videos. This is why mukbangers should consider getting a trainer so they can get fit and maintain their health.

But the secret of many mukbangers is to eat only one meal a day when they’re creating a video. That’s why you see a lot of mukbangers not gaining weight.

They simply eat one big meal a day and exercise a lot. Those meals are often more than 2000+ calories and take a long time to digest.

Something we’ve noticed after interviewing many mubkangers is that they have a very high metabolism. They burn calories very fast and don’t gain weight easily, even when they eat a lot of food in front of the camera.

People often get confused about what mukbang actually is. Mukbang is simply eating on camera for entertainment purposes and it’s not an occupation or profession. Mukbangers work hard but they’re still normal people.

How Much Money Can You Make Doing Mukbang?

Generally speaking, you can make up to $30,000 a month if you have a popular mukbang channel. This might seem like a good amount of money, but it’s nothing compared to other YouTube stars who can make up to $350,000 per month from ad revenue.

In addition, many people also do sponsored videos and can make around $5000 to $20,000 for one video. This varies depending on the company that wants to work with you.

As you can see this isn’t a small business but gaining popularity is extremely hard. Especially when you’re just starting out because the competition is fierce.

Some people create videos for many years before gaining some traction in their channel. They have to work hard and be consistent in order to build a loyal fanbase.

So, if you want to be successful at mukbang, you need to have the skills and talent. You should also know how to promote your videos properly or hire someone who can do that for you.

Then it will become easier to gain subscribers because they’ll see that you’re working hard and gaining popularity. This is the best way to show your fans that you’re worth watching.

Why Is Mukbang Bad?

Mukbang is bad because of the amount of food some people eat. If you eat extremely large amounts of food all the time, it can lead to some serious health problems such as obesity and diabetes.

And obviously, if you’re eating 4000+ calories a day for many years, it can cause weight gain and other problems that go along with this condition. Sometimes, people don’t realize how much they’re eating and eat even more than 4000 calories.

However, there are some mukbangers who don’t gain weight at all because they have a higher metabolism. And this is why it’s so hard to follow Diet Plan. You can find many “easy” diets on the internet that help you lose weight quickly, but they don’t work for everyone.

Some people are genetically predisposed to gaining weight faster than others. And this is why you need to find the right diet, exercise routine, and eating plan that works for you.

That’s why some mukbangers decide to go on long break because it might be easier for them. However, other mukbangers don’t want to stop creating videos and they’re trying to maintain their weight as much as possible.

In addition, some people also follow a special diet that’s designed for athletes. And those diets can help you maintain your energy levels even if you eat a lot of calories in one meal.


As you can see, it’s not easy to do this for a long time and be successful at it. Mukbang isn’t an occupation such as acting or modeling. It doesn’t require specific skills and talents that many think.

However, creating videos for YouTube is hard because there are so many people who want to become famous.
