‘The Male Body Image Experiment’ documents my efforts to change the way I perceive myself. The culmination of my fears is the reason why this blog exists: the agony of aging, the fear of failure, and the lust for a lean physique.

You only get 10 years to be in your twenties, and I refuse to waste the rest of those years with a body I’m ashamed of. As a modern man, it is simply not good enough for me to have an education and career if I cannot be proud of my own temple.

I am a male of 5’8″ and at the beginning of this blog I weighed 161 pounds. This blog was created on the 30th January 2017.

This blog, by nature of its content, could be distressing to those who have had or still have issues with their body image. Please exercise reasonable judgement when accessing the content on this blog, and leave if necessary.
