  1. Bigorexia - Do you have it?


    Just watched a new report on this "disease." Basically an obsession with getting huge (dont we all have this?). Anyway it was talking about how weightlifting can become unhealthy...yada yada.

    Muscle dysmorphia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


  2. One of my friends has a bad case of this. I used to, but I have been through with the size game for a while now.

    Yeah, the news report was pretty vague. Said it can lead to AAS use, but that was really the only negative they said. Also being socially inept or something.

    Sexy.

  7. i know some guys at my gym that have it really bad. they say they are fat and stuff like that but they are really big with some definition, not really cut but you can see some defenition and they feel like they were fat asses and that they need more muscle

  8. I have it real bad. Anytime I see a skinny dude I think, "Wow, that dude is worthless." It's pretty bad.

    I agree with the socially inept thing. I think that's why me and bodybuilding make such a great pair; I'm not an overly social person to begin with. I'm my own best friend when I need to be. I have my family and a few good, true friends, and that's all I need.

    But yes, Zombie, I too have Bigorexia on my penis; as in it must get bigger...and I know that for a fact.

  9. I have BDD and I'm proud of it.

    I've always been some what shy, and in the gym i don't talk to anyone really. Maybe 2 or 3 people and thats it. Mostly I don't care what other people are doing.....I'm there to lift.

    And I'll never be big enough, and if I could take the other fork in the road I'd do it right now rather than piss around with ph/ps supplements.

    Then I must be worthless...

    Truth be told, I am happier at around 185 than in the low 170's, but I know that it is better for me to be at this size for MMA.

  13. I guess I have it. I'm not like gixxer or ic but I know dudes like that. If they see a hot chick with a skinny dude it pisses them off.lol I just love seeing results in size and strength. I like how they have a name for it. Everybody that is serious about something will always critize thereselves. Its no diffrent than tiger woods being unhappy with a drive that would make an average golfer cream their pants.

    Thats pathetic of you if you think of a skinny guy is worthless just because he's skinny.Im glad Im not you!

    Maybe slightly at one point when I got up to Two hundred thirty pounds with fifteen-seventeen bodyfat. Now I understand Bodybuilding is about being proportional, size, symetry, the the whole package, not just being big with no defination. Image a picture of Frank Zane, or youtube the 1980 O. Wow .amazing thats an good example.

  16. let's face it......everyone here in this forum has some sort of mental disorder.

    call it what you like, bigorexia, obsessive compulsive disorder, body building - it's all a sickness.

    at least it a healthier sickness.

    Body-building is a healthy thing and all them rumors about bodybuilders being insecure , ocd, and as you say sickness is just incorrect. Its just something a person likes to do just like an artist loves art. Im happy Im a body-builder. Im glad I allow it to be a part of my life.

    You're taking it a little extreme. It's more of a, "I'm glad I'm not that skinny." type of thing.

    agree somewhat. Honestly what we do is not healthy as you guys think. We have to compare what we eat to the FDA regulations sometimes(YEs FDA was brought up, dont flame, i do hate them to sometimes) When we low carb, PH use, Up protein to high, and all the other great stuff that gets us to look good....but not be best for our minds and bodies.

    On that note, I have Bigorexia. I look at myself and think i am not big enough. I know people say i am, i dont beleive them. I see some people(i know are smaller) and think they are the same size and in better shape. I have a lil anxiety but snapped on my friend when he said "you lift and workout for the girls and you knwo it" HE is 190lbs and flabby. I told him he doesnt know shyt and maybe he should do what i doand live afew more years.

    I can't totally agree with this. I don't think bodybuilding in itself is completely healthy. When you get down to contest diets, it's really not that good for you. Moderate weightlifting and a healthy diet are good, but bodybuilding takes both to an extreme. I agree, however, that I am happy to be a part of bodybuilding.

  21. O Yeah of course them last 2-3 months of deiting are probally not the greatest for the body, when one is gettign ready for a show. How many here has actually done this?

    Not many. Not I. Lowest bodyfat Ive been as an adult is ten percent. If you do do a show make it worth it , The pictures and self accomplish will build upon your shoulders I can only imagine.Overall though I think the benegits outweigh. I think detox;s are important once a year , all veggies for three days and lowered protein intake when you take a week off. It gives the body a rest from pounding in four hundred grams of Protein per day. and of course eating healthy while bodybuilding, fruits, veggies. sleeping sound and deep of course, mediation, just being positive and happy generally.

    Anyways, as far as health goes dietwise, I guarantee I'm more healthy the way I eat now than the way I ate before all of this(:hot.

  23. It's not a bad disease. The media likes to blow this out of proportion and they'll nit pick at everything they can. The only way it can become unhealthy is if the individual takes it to the extreme and does irreparable damage to his body.

  24. i got a little bit of it...but its not life threatening or anything that will take away from the really important things in life like some people have it. Bigorexia (muscle dysmorphia) is a condition in which it controlls your life to the point were you dont have a life, 4 real.

    Completely different!. This is when being not big enough bothers the person dramatically. They will never be happy and will never be satisfied, so yes it is a problem.
