my mates and some of my university lecturers believe that bodybuilders like me and you are mentally unstable, and feel that we keep this strict regime because that is the only control we have on our lives. i cant understand this line of thinking.

i have to disagree and these jibes have upset me, i feel that it not only gives you control over your body, but you can command respect off others with presence, it is because they are jelous? what are your thoughts?
