How did MrBeast lose so much weight? The YouTuber shares his journey

The famous YouTuber talks about what it’s like to lose weight in a “time consuming” career, but one in which he found a way to achieve it.

How did MrBeast lose so much weight? The YouTuber shares his journey

YouTube star Jimmy Donaldson, better known as MrBeast, is taking his fitness journey one step at a time, this time, literally. The 25-year-old has been working out regularly for nearly a year, and he has seen some impressive results.

In a recent interview with The Colin and Samir Show, Donaldson revealed that he has been walking 12,500 steps a day to shed the pounds. He also said that he works out with another YouTuber, Eric, and they have a contract that says they will get a tattoo of each other if they don’t work out one day.

“You’re OK to have a day off if it’s like an actual part of your program, so I occasionally have rest days, but for the most part, the last 310 days, we’ve worked out every single day, and we’ve held each other accountable, and it’s been awesome,” he said.

Donaldson said that his fitness journey has been “time consuming,” but he believes it is worth it. He said that he dedicates about two hours a day to working out and meal preparation.

Even though his fitness journey has taken some time away from his YouTube channel, Donaldson said that he believes it will be well worth it in the end. He said that he is now more focused on his health and well-being, and he is feeling better than ever.

“All you have to do is work out for three months really consistently, and then it’ll just become part of your lifestyle,” he said. “I couldn’t fathom a year ago, ‘How am I ever going to do this religiously?’ because we just have so much stuff going on, but now it’s just truly a habit.”

Already been praised by a major fitness star

MrBeast’s physical transformation has not gone unnoticed. Just a week ago, the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, took to Twitter to respond positively to the YouTuber’s transformation, mentioning, “Keep pumping and inspiring people!” When someone with that kind of career (physical and cinematic) gives you a thumbs up, it means you’ve done well.
