It is about balance. I count protein every day, but I do make sure - even when cutting - that I make room for a Little Debbie or a frozen pizza once a week.

I eat super clean on the weekdays just so i can pound a burrito and some tecates on weekend nights.

It may be personal but its on topic, my digestive system cant keep up with a bodybuilders diet... I just throw way tooo much whole food at it. Once that burrito and alcohol arrive, they clean house and I wake up looking leaner than ever sunday morning.

I'm the same way. If I run a cheat day once every 2-4 weeks, whatever, I flush and wake up 2 to 3 days later down 2 to 5 pounds. And that weight generally stays off the scale.

Haha, I guess I'm the only retarded person on this board that doesn't have regular cheat meals!! Maybe a couple times a year?

This year's cheat meals: post-comp sugar coma, and Christmas.

That sounds delicious! I love IHOP. I find it very upsetting that Canada does not have them...what's the point of it being an INTERNATIONAL house of pancakes if it's not international!?!?

This could be abnormal if someone REFUSED to EVER do it. How many bodybuilders refuse to be at a healthy level though? Desire to maximize muscle though? Uh...

Once again...could be a problem if it was INTENSE. Normal fear of gaining fat is...well...normal. And anyone who works their butt of in the gym lifting is going to fear losing muscle.

Why on earth is this a problem? Why would this be on the list at all? Total utter nonsense.

Common current bodybuilding thinking is that lowfat is not a good thing. Beyond that...what does any of this have to do with 'disorder'?

Like others have said...spending time on something important to you isn't a bad thing Why is fitness treated this way. I practice my guitar a lot and it's applausable. Save up and buy a new guitar. All cool. Pay for private instruction? Good for you. But I put effort and money into diet and woe be unto me.

This could be problematic if extreme. This is something that we all (people...not bodybuilders) need to be realistic about. We are who we are.

This one pissed me off the worse. If I'm not willing to down a plate of cookies every time the family gets together I have a disorder?!?! Yes, I stopped going to the weekly family cookie night. Yes, when they have a pizza party at work I don't join in. Guess I need psychological treatment.

Realistically, I can see it being taken too far. But anything can be taken too far. Ultimately, the principles behind bodybuilding have been nothing but a blessing in my life.

This article makes me mad.
