Understanding Bigorexia

Bigorexia, also known as muscle dysmorphia or reverse anorexia, is an obsession where a person is preoccupied with food and exercise to build big muscles and toned bodies to make that person look more physically attractive. This is most common in teenage boys and young adult men, as both social and traditional media perpetuate the idea that the ideal man should have a ‘buff’, muscular body.
