Do fitness models get off steroids?

Going to disagree here with Darren Beattie and shed some light on the fitness modeling industry.

What a lot of people don't know is that the majority of "professional fitness models" use steroids.  While they might not appear to be as freakish as the bodybuilders you see on magazine covers, there are elements of their physique that are otherwise unachievable without, at minimum, a low dose of some sort of steroid.  Many, for example, will run a low dose of Tren.  Not really enough to achieve any sort of freakish status, but just enough to keep the skin tight and their abs on 10.

Do fitness models cycle off?  Yes.  But the truth is that in order to be on the cover of a magazine, you have to have abs that you simply can't get being "all natural."  It's just a different look.  Those bulging muscles underneath a paper-thin layer of skin doesn't just come from a clean diet.  And no matter how much we are told to believe that it does, behind the scenes those same models preaching health and wellness are sticking themselves with low doses of steroids-or, in some cases, moderate or high doses.

It sucks because nobody wants to actually admit it.  My sources here are friends that actually are professional fitness models, and what they've shared with me along their own personal journeys.  If you are active in the bodybuilding world, it doesn't take long to realize that just about everyone is taking something-even if they say they aren't.

The irony here is that, I actually have never taken steroids, and yet people have accused me of the same.  It's frustrating that even above I say "anyone who says they are all natural, isn't," meanwhile I say that I am, honestly, all natural.

Why do most of people in the world eat three meals a day, not two, not four, but three?

Probably because we are brought up to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. People need to eat food because that is what our fuel is to keep us alive. Not all societies eat like the western world; however food is eaten and very few eat like wolves or wild animals

How do fitness models cut body fat?

Cutting weight is different from losing weight. Losing weight is a long slow process. You can effectively lose 1-2 pounds of body weight a week, with hard work and good nutrition. Cutting weight is different, it can be fairly quick, but it is very stressful and completely temporary. I

Who has the worst Marvel/DC superhero fanbase and why?

I would have to say Marvel fanbase.Let's be honest. Marvel fans are kinda arrogant because the MCU is on fire. They make great movies. All their movies have gotten at least 60 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.The issue is that they think they're true Marvel Fans. They're not.If you asked them
