This YouTuber Can Probably Eat More Than You

This is Yuka Kinoshita. And today, we are going watch her eat so much fucking food.


In Japanese, Kinoshita is called a “gluttonous beautiful woman” (大食い美女 or “oogui bijyo”). Her YouTube channel is popular and features videos of her doing things like eating one hundred Chicken McNuggets:

Which is a snap for her. For her, this is like a warm-up routine.

And here she is trying to eat a hundred hamburgers, but stopping at 62 because she ran out of time.

In this video, she eats 3 kg (6.6 pounds) of instant noodles.


While I love yakisoba as much as the next person, I cannot imagine that eating over six pounds of it is advisable. Especially how she drowns it in all that mayonnaise. Guess she has fast metabolism!


Or the time she ate three large pizzas that clocked in at 10,800 calories.


Or 4.7 kilograms (over 10 pounds) of cereal, which is 9,000 soggy calories.


Or 13,552 calories of McDonald’s. That’s ten 10 double cheese burgers, 10 teriyaki burgers, and 10 pies.


Kinoshita has become increasingly well known, and this year, she even got her own photo book.


She has also appeared on Japanese TV, going around to various restaurants that offer abnormally large portions and trying to eat everything she’s served:


Like 5.5 kg (12 pounds) of curry rice. Which she did in 35 minutes.

Fast metabolism or not, this can’t be healthy, no? Well, according to her medical check-ups, she’s in excellent health.

When it comes to health and fitness, an area I was a professional in for over 10 years, diet means very little for certain individuals. The human body is an amazing thing, and each individual’s makeup is wildly different and capable of immeasurable things.

It’s not simply her metabolism that is off the charts, but also her body’s ability to process food and dispose of the bad stuff. What that means is that her body is actually “smarter” than your average human’s body. She might truly be able to eat as much as she wants and not have a single health problem. Again, some people are just gifted this way. Call is their “Super Power”.

Other examples of such insane body work are smokers. Many cases we hear about smokers who have weak immune systems, develop cancer, or die extremely early. However, there are cases where individuals smoke packs (PACKS!) a day and live to be over 100 years old with zero health problems. Again, the human body is an amazing thing.

I’m not saying this is definitely the case for Kinoshita Yuka, but to assume she’s “killing” herself voids the idea that she may just have a stronger digestion that you’ll ever have. Just like the smoker example, there are many individuals who eat whatever the hell they want and both never gain weight and live a long, healthy life.

One more time, the human body is an amazing thing.
