Are you Overdoing The Supplements?
Why are you into Natural Bodybuilding, why are you eating to be healthy and is the fact that your diet needs to be so clean affecting your health? This article explores the pressures on men to look their best and that term body-conscious comes into it too.
To me most people who continue Bodybuilding/weight training on a regular basis are driven by habit and can stick to tough exercise and diet/lifestyle regimes. Does this mean that we are psychologically suffering and is the pressure becoming too much that we take extreme measures to achieve goals we set.
At the end of the day it’s all about balance and keeping not just your body in shape but your mind too. Sometimes it’s better to pull back from the tough regimes you put yourself through to try to achieve that perfect look. At the end of the day you have to enjoy what you are doing or what is the point?

Men who use powdered supplements laced with proteins to help bulk up are acting under psychological pressures that are similar to those found in people who have eating disorders, indicates the results of a new study. As with a large number of people who suffer disorders such as bulimia or anorexia, men who are body-conscious are using these supplements to replace full meals, as they attempt to attain what in their mind is the perfect body.natural-Bodybuilding-Supplement
Protein powder is the supplement most popularly consumed by men at gyms. Some of the supplements claim to deliver amino acids to the cells of the muscle following a workout, which helps them to repair as well as grow.
The protein powder is part of a broader supplement industry, which has been forecasted to be worth more than $730 million annually within the next three years.
The recent study surveyed 195 men who were 18 to 65 years of age and who had used legal supplements, such as creatine and whey protein.
Researchers found that 40% of the men increased their supplement intake over a period of time, while 22% said they regularly had replaced meals with the supplements that are recommended not to be used to replace any meals.
Even more alarmingly said doctors, was that 29% of the men admitted to be worried by the amount of their supplement consumption. Another 8% said they were advised to cut back on supplements by a medical care provider.
