Bigorexia is also referred to as muscle dysmorphia or reverse anorexia. This is a condition characterized by being obsessed with one’s muscular appearance; hence, bigorexia is more associated with men as compared to women. Individuals with this obsession are religiously working out, dieting, comparing their muscle size with others, and seeking encouragement regarding their physique since they do not like to appear frail or physically underdeveloped. They may also abuse anabolic steroids or supplements to develop more muscle mass.
