Mukbangers do not gain weight because they don’t overeat in one sitting. They also only have one big meal a day. This really helps to stay in shape and not gain weight.

I’ve been creating mukbang videos for a long time now, and the easiest way to not gain weight is to exercise a lot.

If you want to try the diet of a mukbanger make sure to start slowly and build up from there.

How Do Mukbangers Stay in Shape?

Mukbangers stay in shape by exercising a lot. They also stay within the calorie intake of their diet. It’s not that they eat big meals three times a day.

Most often, the mukbangers eat one big meal every three days, which is perfect for creating a video. Outside that, they only eat healthy food, salads, and fruits.

They also don’t care about what they’re eating because it’s just for the viewers. This means that they’re not overdoing it while eating pizza or other fatty foods.

They prefer to keep in shape this way so that they won’t get fat during the period where they create mukbang videos

What I normally prefer is to avoid eating breakfast and eat one big meal a day. This way, you can keep within the calorie intake and avoid eating too much at once. 

I’m actually a big fan of this diet because it prevents me from getting fat while I’m creating mukbang videos on a regular basis.    

How Do Mukbangers Not Get Sick?

Mukbangeres do not get sick because they often take medicine and eat healthy food. They also stay away from greasy and fatty foods.

The reason why mukbangers don’t get sick is that they often take medicine and eat healthy food. This prevents them from getting sick often and helps with the digestion of the body as well.

They also eat a lot of vegetables which are great for your body and help you not get sick as well.

They also don’t eat fatty foods like French fries or greasy food as this can cause a lot of illnesses as well. Make sure to always avoid those kinds of food, if you want to stay healthy.

Try eating lots of healthy food yourself and see how it improves your health as well.  All in all, it’s important to take care of your body while creating mukbang videos.

Do Mukbangers Have an Eating Disorder?

No, mukbangers do not have an eating disorder because they love food. They’re not really addicted to the act of eating itself.

Some people think that mukbangers have an eating disorder because they eat so much, but this is actually not true at all.

They do enjoy eating food, but it’s not like they can’t live without it or something.

They’re not really addicted to the act of eating; it’s just that they love making mukbang videos.

One thing you could say is that they’re addicted to the reactions of their viewers, but this still doesn’t mean that they have an eating disorder.

An eating disorder is when someone can’t live without eating, so this is not the case for mukbangers.

I’ve had an eating disorder for a very long time, and I still think this way. It’s important to always keep in mind, if you have an eating disorder, that it doesn’t mean you have a problem with food.

Eating too much or too little isn’t really healthy either so make sure to eat enough to be able to create mukbang videos and not overeat at the same time.

What Is the Salary of A Mukbanger?

The salary of an average mukbanger with around 100,000 subscribers would be at least $10,000 a month. This can go up to $50,000 depending on what they’re promoting and how many sponsors they have.

This is a lot of money, considering they only eat healthy food and are doing it for their viewers.

The reason why these mukbangers have so many sponsors is that they often promote products in their videos. For example, if they’re eating a certain brand of cereal then that will be promoted by the sponsor as well.

This way, you have to pay less money to create a mukbang video, and you won’t need to buy as many products, which makes it more cost-efficient as well.

This is one of the main reasons why they often have so many sponsors and why they get paid so much money.


All in all, mukbangers do not gain weight easily and they make sure to eat healthy food.
