Body Dysmorphia & Body Image
I just dropped a new podcast on Body Image & Body Dysmorphia for you guys CLICK HERE to give it a listen.
I meet so many beautiful-athletic-fit “way above average women” in my business ..
It’s Scottsdale we have some sexy folks living here….
Even with that said over the years I have seen too many of them exhibit numerous symptoms of body dysmorphic disorder.
Many of you are saying “what hell is that?” – Per my good friends over at the Mayo Clinic –
“Body dysmorphic disorder is a type of chronic mental illness in which you can’t stop thinking about a flaw in your appearance — a flaw that is either minor or imagined.” When you have body dysmorphic disorder, you intensely obsess over your appearance and body image, often for many hours a day. Body dysmorphic disorder is also known as dysmorphophobia.”
Now to some degree I think we all feel “self-conscious” of certain areas of our body be it, breasts, stomach, arms, legs, butt whatever it is most of us have something we don’t love on our bodies.
I think that’s a Normal feeling we can all work on some things we don’t like…….but when it becomes an obsession – taking up hours of your day thinking about it, starring in the mirror at your “trouble issue” day after day, not wearing or ALWAYS wearing certain clothes to always hide your “flaws” it becomes more of an unhealthy habit or disorder.

Until next time eat well, train hard & be nice to people.
