Bigorexia - Seeing yourself as being smaller or less muscular than you actually are

The is an increasing emphasis in young men on having a muscled, toned body. With this pressure, there appears to be an increase in ‘muscularity-orientated disordered eating behaviours’. These involve eating more or differently to gain weight and ‘bulk out’. If left unchecked, this can develop into a ‘body dysmorphia’ where individuals develop a distorted view of their body. The article [here] discusses how an example of this, ‘bigorexia’, can occur where individuals see themselves as being less bulky than they actually are.
