Muscle Dysmorphia or "Bigorexia" is currently the male version of killing yourself to gain society's fickle approval of your appearance. It's when a guy looks in the mirror and sees skinny, no matter what his reality is. Below is a brief documentary on it but be warned: there are some spectacularly gross images, including icky medical stuff. On the humorous side, there's a few quotes from a young Schwarzenegger, doing nothing to improve his image as an oft-times crass bastard.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8klvOnro ... re=related
Wow, what a most excellent documentary (minus the real disgusting scenes, but which I think some guys do need to see). I need to find the full length version of this. Funny, when I do too much weight lifting, I have a natural "gees, that looks too big" reaction, which is usually when I switch to more cardio. Sorry, but too much muscle just doesn't look good.
