BIGOREXIA BODYBUILDING AND MUSCLE DYSMORPHIA PDF

It surprised me. My best friend, Amanda Anderson , was the tiniest person I knew and not because she didn't eat. When we were little, she'd routinely down a dozen pancakes for breakfast. She apparently just had a crazy high metabolism. In our early twenties, we'd dance all night at a club, then we'd take the 5 am train home, and I'd go to bed while she put in a full day at work. She's more dedicated to the gym than ever.

Muscle dysmorphia is an emerging condition that primarily affects male bodybuilders. Such individuals obsess about being inadequately muscular. Compulsions include spending hours in the gym, squandering excessive amounts of money on ineffectual sports supplements, abnormal eating patterns or even substance abuse. In this essay, I illustrate the features of muscle dysmorphia by employing the first-person account of a male bodybuilder afflicted by this condition.

I briefly outline the history of bodybuilding and examine whether the growth of this sport is linked to a growing concern with body image amongst males. I suggest that muscle dysmorphia may be a new expression of a common pathology shared with the eating disorders. Tags Type your tag names separated by a space and hit enter. Eur Eat Disord Rev.

‘Bigorexia’ Is Plaguing the Bodybuilding Community

I t is difficult for Miles to pinpoint the moment his muscle dysmorphia started. It was just always there, a background hum. When he was 13, Miles spent a summer cutting grass to save up for a secondhand Soloflex exercise machine. With the help of the Soloflex, Miles started weight training and never looked back. When he returned from a posting to Afghanistan at 24, things spiralled. He began obsessively working out and regimenting his meals.
