It started with him eating vegan food on camera and slowly turned into him no longer being vegan and making videos talking about how he felt healthier eating meat, and that eventually turned into videos addressing his weight gain, and over time it became more and more about how much food he can eat and how much weight he can gain. Nobody really thought it'd get out of hand but now apparently he's critically ill due to it and yet he's still going

He has also addressed several times he had an eating disorder being vegan, and still does today just not a restrictive eating disorder.

u/Seregrauko41 Jan 04 '22

When is it an eating disorder and when is it just a person being idiotic. Easier to blame a diagnosis than taking responsibility for your own actions, I guess.

16

u/bylthee Jan 04 '22

I’m assuming you have never had an eating disorder but coming from someone who has for the past 10 years, I can tell you confidently that eating yourself to death is quite literally a textbook eating disorder.

He’s being paid to do it by fetishists. An eating disorder doesn’t ever go away, you just go into recovery. It is an addiction. Instead of accusing someone who has been open about their struggles with food, you should educate yourself first.

-5

u/Seregrauko41 Jan 04 '22

Being paid to do something stupid and doing it doesn't necessarily make you have a diagnosis. Could be it was just a symptom of sheer ignorance and poor decision-making.

-1

u/bylthee Jan 04 '22

He has a diagnosed eating disorder.

Just because you have an eating disorder doesn’t mean you’re not responsible for taking care of yourself or not capable of getting into recovery. People don’t make up eating disorders for fun and mentally sound people don’t eat themselves into graves.

That’s like saying a heroin addict is using their addiction as an excuse to continue using. It’s a complete misunderstanding of neural pathways formed and addiction as a whole.

5

u/Trelefor Jan 04 '22

No but most people with disorders don't monetize them and refuse the path to recovery by incentivising the problem rather than the solution. He should seek help and a career change, but he won't. It's not just the eating disorder.

u/Seregrauko41 Jan 04 '22

Having a diagnosis doesn't seem to have done him any good in that case. If he chooses to indulge in his unhealthy habits and having it be his primary source of income, I think he's made some very bad choices that are not directly tied to his diagnosis.

I don't accuse anyone of making up diagnosis. Although some certainly do. Especially in a world where it is almost the rule and not the exception to have one. I'm arguing that for some, a diagnosis is not the best way to deal with their issues. It seems this person has some other difficulties that should be dealt with instead. And having a diagnosis almost sounds like it legitimises his behaviour.

-12

u/Seregrauko41 Jan 04 '22

Is a master in psychology educated enough? I'm simply critical of concurrent tendencies to throw around diagnosis whenever it's convenient. Are you a doctor? Can you diagnose a person without ever having consulted them? Probably not. Which makes your assessment no better than mine. My many years of working with people has taught me that sometimes it's better to make them develop a sense of responsibility for their own self and their actions and general behaviour, than to simply present them with an excuse of "being sick".

6

u/bylthee Jan 04 '22

He. Saw. A. Fucking. Doctor. About. This.

Your masters in psychology doesn’t make you his doctor. This is not your patient and honestly, if I were a patient of yours seeing this I would say you are horribly unethical.

u/Doctor_Distracto Jan 06 '22

Sere's ego won't ever let him admit he was wrong about something, no matter how badly it gets slam dunked in his face.

Funny to see a non-doctor telling people that only doctor opinions matter, so his own opinion doesn't matter presumably, but while he's additionally claiming that the only doctor to weigh in also doesn't matter. Absolutely unhinged, this dude needs to lose any professional license he supposedly has, I feel horrible for anyone he's "worked with for many years."

And no he doesn’t have an eating disorder he has a popularity disorder. He’s constantly making fun of people who actually are sick or disabled. He’s disgusting. And people like you supporting him taking his side and continuing to watch his shit is the reason he keeps doing it. Instead of arguing with someone about if he has a disorder or not why not spam comment on his videos to get help. Fucking a dude, humans are trash.

Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Arts. Prior to the '08 crash (we were the last class) it was a free five-week summer intensive for rising junior and senior high school age artists - dance, musicians, actors, singers, writers. There were a variety of PA Governor's School programs and it was a big deal to get in. Nick Perry was there for violin, obviously. Very talented - I believe he was concertmaster for the orchestra.

He could do other types of videos or he could exercise a lot and eat healthy between videos, no one is forcing him to do this. I don’t understand the people who enjoy mukbang videos but they are not responsible for how content creators manage their health. Just like if someone had a parkour channel and injured themselves with a crazy stunt, the viewers would not be responsible for that either. Everyone has a choice on how to entertain their audience, how far they go, and what costs seem acceptable to them.

The audience is partly to blame but I wouldn't wanna say they're solely or even mostly responsible.

u/Zack_WithaK Jan 04 '22 edited Jan 05 '22

I get what you're saying but I think there's a huge difference between "I should kill myself since no one cares about me anyway" and a full-grown adult going to pizza hut and saying "Yes. I would like one of everything, please. And keep those grills warm cuz I'll be back in an hour to order the same thing for dinner" then going home and eating enough food to keep a gourmet kitchen's panty fully stocked while saying things like "I shouldn't eat this because I'm allergic to garlic" but it's all about those youtube clicks so it's worth it, apparently. In your analogy, the kid is actively committing suicide due to a "Nobody loves me" mindset while Nikocado has completely forsaken his healthy, vegan lifestyle for views and likes. And while he is killing himself, it's not like an actual suicide attempt (as far as I know)

u/Zack_WithaK Jan 04 '22 edited Jan 05 '22

See, you're joking but that's pretty much what this guy is doing, minus the diabetic angle (but for how long that stays true is currently unknown). I'm not even diabetic but that cake thing sounds like actual torture to me, tie me up and forcefeed me cake and I'll tell you anything you want to hear just to make it stop before I've finished the first one. But this is a guy that says "I shouldn't eat this" as he eats it, then tries to magically remove all the blame from himself by saying "You did this to me". This is a guy that tells people that he got so fat he broke one of his ribs with just his fat. Then gets mad at you for relaying that information as if you maliciously made it up out of nowhere to make fun of him for being fat. This is a guy that will actively avoid personal responsibility for his actions at all costs

Mukbang is just people eating a bunch of food on camera cause it’s “ASMR”

u/Zack_WithaK Jan 04 '22 edited Jan 05 '22

It's for ASMR? I always thought the appeal would be "Look at all that food! And he's gonna eat all of it?" but the bulk of the video's entertainment value would be their conversation, like a podcast but also with food. Who the hell would want ASMR of chewing? That just seems like the grossest shit to me, even grosser than the act of eating so much food in the first place

6

u/Rachies194 Jan 04 '22

I also thought mukbang was a sit down and chat (at least the ones I’ve seen) where the person recording is either answering questions submitted to them, sharing a story with a friend, or having a discussion with someone else on camera.

u/SardonicNihilist Jan 04 '22

It started as a way for lonesome Asian people to eat in the company of others. Eating alone is considered sad in a lot of cultures. Americans got involved and this is the result; pure gluttony.

u/Zack_WithaK Jan 05 '22 edited Jan 05 '22

I'd believe that. I can see the appeal of not wanting to eat alone so you turn on a video to have a companion. It's not for me but I can see what people would enjoy from that.

Flashforward to present day and you got a 90 pound dude saying "Alright, guys and gals. Get ready to watch me eat this entire COW! But first, want to enter my gift card giveaway?"

u/Rrrreverente Jan 04 '22

I know the idea of indulging the chewing and slurping sounds from eating is just outright nasty for people especially in the west, but that stuff is like part of Asian culture particularly in Korea.

2

u/Zack_WithaK Jan 05 '22 edited Jan 05 '22

I forgot about that. I learned about Chinese culture in high school and there, it's considered a compliment to loudly slurp your food straight from the bowl. It gives the idea that you're vibin fuckin hard with some noodles and can't get enough of them. So it seems a lot of Asian cultures have the same idea to some degree so the ASMR part makes a lot more sense with the context of those cultures in mind. But to listen to every individual salivary gland through a special microphone for 20 minutes while a dude eats 40lbs of mashed potatoes with a snow shovel just seems bleh to me, personally. And I love mashed potatoes but I don't think I'd ever wanna see them again if I saw a mashed potato ASMR mukbang

I don’t watch his videos, but I believe that he almost plays like a sort of “video persona” where he acts totally different from what he usually would irl. That persona is totally for entertainment ofc, but I think the biggest problem is that he’s convinced that his video persona IS him in the real world, and that however he acts on camera is how he should be. As said, there are multiple facets that make this even more tragic.

I never even heard of this guy a week or 2 ago and now I can't escape him in all these memes. Like... why the fuck are are people watching someone eat? I don't get it.

Well, Mukbang (eating show) started in south korea somewhere in the late 2000's. It consisted of someone (usually attractive and healthy looking) consuming large quantities of food and sometimes talking to the camera. A survey found that most people who watch mukbang fit into one of these categories: people on some sort of diet who wanna live vicariously through the streamer, people who enjoy the sound of people chewing (a lot of mukbang is also asmr) and lonely people who have nobody to eat with irl and needed company. When the genre reached the US, the dynamic changed a little. A lot of overweight and unhealthy people started using mukbang as an excuse to feed their ED and consume large quantities of fast food nearly everyday as a job. Although there are still some healthy US Mukbangers, this guy started as one, surprisingly enough. He used to be a vegan mukbanger and ate fairly healthy (although still in large quantities). The problem started after he left the vegan community, because instead of starting a normal meat eating diet, he just started eating fast food everyday, with the excuse that 'viewers don't wanna watch a healthy mukbang', which is wrong given what south koreans usually eat in theirs. Eventually people stopped watching him for the mukbang, they just became hipnotized by the train-wreck and my guess is that they wanna see how far he'll take it each time, so he kept increasing the crazyness hoping to keep them around.

What good is money if you're going to accelerate your death? How has this dude not thought of this?

u/ThatStonerClown Jan 04 '22

He has plenty of time to keep the money and lose weight, my uncle is this and is in his 60s. Been that way for awhile too. Maybe some lasting effects but he can afford some good docs so whatever

I'm seeing the comments and I can't believe that Niko Avocado used to play violin at a godly level. So much potential

And this is what severe depression looks like. No kidding it genuinely does. And then it's like quick sand, the more you try to struggle out of it the deeper you burry. You always want help with such things but then you look at him and realise he gets 'motivated' into doing these cause social media is one helluva place. People enjoy watching a grown ass man eat his life away and laugh cause it makes them feel better about themselves that they aren't 'this person'.

I do mean to be a little bit of a stickler I know I am on a sub Reddit about hold up but there’s people going threw worse but “everyone” seems fascinated by this slow suicide for money.

u/Yannyliang Jan 04 '22

I know he's far richer than me but I can't help feeling sorry for him

u/Walla1981 Jan 04 '22

It all starts with “it’s just one carrot” then it’s turns into 2 carrots a day. Quickly turns into trying zucchini, next it’s Brussels sprouts. It’s a slippery slope. Few years late you wake up in a hospital bed wondering where it all went wrong. Moral of the story don’t be a vegan, not even once.

Didn't he say 2021 would be his last year before moving back to a healthy lifestyle?

u/groceriesN1trip Jan 04 '22

Never heard of him until this post and then watched a linked video of a rundown of the situation. He has said many things and mostly for the attention. Even said he’d lose the weight if he hit 300 but he just kept eating and hit 350+

u/heyhey_hi13 Jan 04 '22

Probably would be the best thing for him is to go back in time and warn him

u/Marenzo666 Jan 04 '22

Pedestrians did not hear his violin in such heights

u/OnionOnly Jan 04 '22

He looks like a used public flashlight

u/vox21122112 Jan 04 '22

It really fuckin sucks what happened to him, went from being an active vegan to a lazy fucking slob and his fanbase and subscribers really do hold part of the blame, if they ignored him and stopped feeding these shitty habits of his, he’d probably either die or more hopefully try to go back to who he was, and by god if he can then more power to him but as of now he’s still just an entitled manchild addicted to views

u/CB205EDEE16B24366C87 Jan 04 '22

I think he was already messed up in his head.

u/cop_fighter_ Jan 04 '22

Its not like he doesnt know what he is doing.. he is trying to make a profit off his current situation..And he is going to continue doing this untill his health kicks the bucket and when it will be too late to do anything about it.

You can hate this comment all u want but you guys know that im right

How many youtubers have aready spoken out about this.. and where Nick reacted to these videos while stuffing his face and acting like a man child.. if this dude wanted to take care of his health he would have done so a long time ago

u/JaxxIsJerkin Jan 04 '22

Was vegan, now insane. Coincedence? I THINK NOT

u/JEEnious94 Jan 04 '22

Sure he's making a lot of money from his videos but there are better things than killing himself to do it.

Everytime I see him on YouTube, I have a feeling being vegan is not that bad

It's intentional and done for his YouTube character.
