Having a positive body image is a surefire way to ensure you stay on the road to a life of health and happiness. But for some, never feeling good enough is cause for concern. And while one of the most well-known body image issues is anorexia, bigorexia is also on the rise, and something to look out for. Zilvinas Nacas is a 37-year-old man with an enviable physique boasting ripped biceps, a chiseled chest and a toned waist. He works out twice a day and sticks to a strict diet. At 6ft 4in and weighing 112kg, he has quite the stature. Yet, despite the way he looks, his dysmorphia causes him to view himself as puny. Nacas is constantly criticizing himself, believing he is "disgusting" and "not muscular enough." this man's bigorexia rules his everyday life "My wife realized I was developing bigorexia as I was constantly going on about my physique, being picky with food and always at the gym. I would pose non-stop in front of the mirror and always asked people how I looked – to hear from them that I have muscles," he admits. this man's bigorexia rules his everyday life Nacas situation arose after becoming infatuated with the toned and sculpted men in fitness magazines. In order to achieve similar results, he picked up an intense workout regimen that now has him at the gym twice a day.
