Muscle Dysmorphia: "My Brother Kills Himself In Gym, He's Under Huge Pressure To Get Ripped Body"

Dr Illona Duffy offers her expert advice weekly on The Saturday Social.

This week, we had this email in from a listener who is concerned about her brother:

Hi Doctor!
 
Could you please give me some advice for my brother. He is 27 and has struggled with body issues for years. Simply put he's been trying to get 'big' and 'ripped' for the past ten years. I think he's been trying to live up to expectation these days that all lads need to have bulging biceps and a six pack! I feel sorry for him because he kills himself in the gym but I just feel he'll never be big because his body type doesn't allow for it. Can you make a slim build bigger? Have you any advice for guys who are putting huge pressure on themselves to 'get ripped'? ANON
Dr Illona gave her professional advice for our listener.
She also tackled an email from Maura who is concerned about 'viral overload':
