BJ Banzz really like sweet foods and dessert. Cakes, Pie, Rolls, Donuts, Ice cream and many more. Whenever I watch some of his dessert videos, I always thought of Diabetes, consuming a lot of sweets in one day can easily increase the sugar intake in his body. Well, some of the dessert in eat are a special pastries which has a low number of glucose inside it.

In one of his videos which entitled 크리스피 도넛 신제품 33개 도전 EatingShow Challenge 먹방. He ate a 4 dozen of Krispy Kreme Donuts or 36 assorted donuts in just one seating! but not like Food Challenges, Mukbang eat the food slowly and the BJs indulge the food for the viewers.

BJ Banzz took advantage of his Mukbang activity. He used the intake of large amount of calories and protein to build his body. He transformed all the fats he has eaten to muscles. So from time to time, BJ Banzz make sure to exercise regularly to maintain his 6 packs abs. So don't worry if BJ Banzz consumes a lot of food, He still make sure to have a healthy body.
