There is so much pressure in this world to get ‘the look’ – guys often tell YLC they feel that they should be more muscular in order to fit in. Other guys feel that they’re overweight and want to lose lots. Guys often find it tough to accept how they look.
First, we need to remember that all people come in different shapes and sizes. You’re unique, inside and out. If you feel that your weight is truly a health concern, have a chat with your doctor to find out your choices to live a healthier life.
A lot of guys have considered taking weight supplements or eating with very strict diets – the ones that are supposed to build body weight and muscle. The problem is, these supplements and strict diets can have serious side effects and hurt your health. If you’re trying to build muscle and get in shape, it’s important to talk to your doctor or a fitness professional about how to do this in a healthy way.
Remember, if something looks too good to be true, it probably is. There is only one way muscles can experience healthy and long lasting growth, which is through careful and measured exercise. There is no quick fix!
By taking care of your body, eating well and exercising regularly, you can enjoy the healthy lifestyle that you deserve.
Remember that you are unique, and that your life counts! You don’t need to try to live up to an unachievable standard, but it is great to strive to live a healthy lifestyle.
You are important. Your life counts, and you can make a difference in this world. If you ever need to talk about this or anything else, feel free to get in touch with us. We’re here for you.
