Muscle dysmorphia (also called Reverse anorexia or Bigorexia)

Muscle dysmorphia (also called Reverse anorexia or Bigorexia) is a form of body dysmorphic disorder that affects males and females. Sufferers develop a pathological preoccupation with their muscularity,  believing themselves to be small and weak, no matter how large their muscles. Like anorexics, they may also see themselves as fat and develop a range of eating rituals. One method of treatment is cognitive behavior therapy (CBT). See article Clinical features of muscle dysmorphia among males with body dysmorphic disorder
