Ever heard of Mukbang? If you haven’t, then I’m assuming you’re going to Google it now, or after some of the stories we share on this episode, you’ll definitely be doing your research. In this episode of #AuthenticAF, we talk about the crazy rise of the sexualisation of food and competitive eating, and what it’s doing to our psychology. We also dive deep into why you must take ownership of your own journey, and why the next best self help guru isn’t the answer to dealing with the Muck you need to face. Environment is everything, so while you’re listening to this, take note of what actions you need to begin taking in an hour’s time once it’s finished, and get to work. “You need to make yourself accountable, own it yourself.” - Akash Vaghela Timestamps: 00:00 – Intro 01:25 – Lockdown in present times 03:30 – Goals and outcomes 04:45 – Genetics and muscle growth 05:28 – Enjoying without worrying genetic limit 06:45 – Definition of Mukbang 08:10 – Food back then 09:28 – Overconsumption of food 11:30 – Psychology behind Mukbang 13:40 – Phyiscal as vehicle 15:40 – Anorexia as an escape 18:52 – Balance you want in your life 20:00 – Being in shape for life 24:00 – Social media pressure 27:13 – Lockdown as perfect time to explore 29:25 – Physical response to trauma 32:48 – Quitting 35:32 – Making yourself accountable, owning yourself 37:00 – Education (books and podcasts) vs change 39:43 – Virtual Environment 43:33 – Pushing to the limit 48:15 – Weird and strange things on TV 49:30 – Concept of Food porn 51:43 – Social Media Competition 52:44 – Akash way back 2014 53:45 – Ed’s Previous consolidations 56:00 – Wrap up Thanks so much for listening!
