    What would be allowed naturally. I guess my question is too bodybuilders suffer from a higher rate of heart disease, heart attack etc than normal weighted individuals?

    The set point is different for every person and it is impossible to say whether or not it negatively affects health.

    I'm assuming when you say BBer that you're referring to the pros.
