Anyone who is into social media might know this famous YouTuber. His name is Nikocado Avocado. Yes, you have seen him in those eating videos called ‘mukbang videos’. Originally known as Nicholas Perry, a Ukraine-born American native, later attained millions of followers only through his eating videos.
Shot in an ASMR format, these videos are the latest trend on the Internet harnessing millions of views. But many don’t know the fact that he used to be a vegan violinist who weighed 150 pounds. And recently, he has again shocked the fans by flaunting his terrific weight loss.
It was in 2014, Perry started his first YouTube channel and named it Nikocado Avocado. He started posting videos on lifestyle and music themes. But later in 2016, he released a video showing his break up from veganism and he called it an unbalanced and mentally unstable trend.
It was from this year onwards, Perry started making mukbang videos. Being one of the first Americans to participate in this trend, he garnered around 50,000 views for his video in a week. Eventually, the YouTuber could gain a massive number of views, estimated to be around 734 million. But these videos also started Perry’s downfall. He gained much weight, around 400 pounds.

But things were not always easy with Perry. In an earlier interview with the YouTuber, he shared that he started creating mukbang videos for attention which he missed during his childhood. Also, he had revealed certain mental health conditions such as OCD and ADD which he was diagnosed with from an early age itself.
According to Perry, due to his mental health issues, he had to take antidepressants since the age of 7. In many of his videos, he can be seen showing some weird behaviors such as crying and self-loathing which might be indicators of his mental health condition.
Anyway, the good part of the story is that Perry now appears more lean and healthy. And he has lost around 89 pounds. Even though we don’t know how Nikocado Avocado has pulled off this weight loss, he has opened up about committing to exercise.
