Episode 26: Male Bodybuilding (3) - Disorderly Eating & Eating Disorders

December 8, 2020

This is the 3rd episode examining body image and disorderly eating in male body builders. In parts 1 and 2, I discussed how rising sociocultural pressures to adopt a lean muscular physique has led to an increase in a body dysmorphia subtype known as muscle dysmorphia; and how men who suffer from this condition perceive themselves to have insufficient muscle mass. In this episode, I will explore another aspect of MD, which is a pathological preoccupation with leanness; and thereby explain how MD is related to disorderly eating and eating disorders.
