Finally, the life of a steroid-user is not as glamorous as it seems. Steroids are expensive and illegal. They can do jail time if caught, and there are a lot of ancillary drugs and supplements that must also be taken to minimize the damage to their organs or to keep certain hormones in normal ranges (ex: Nolvadex). Their bloodwork (hematocrit, cholesterol profile, etc.) and blood pressure is often atrocious. They battle with sleep apnea and fluctuating moods and sex-drives, and many have trouble performing simple daily task such as wiping their butts or washing their backs. Last, their caloric intake is much higher (and expensive), and it becomes a chore to meet calorie and protein requirements day in and day out. The grass is not always greener on the other side.
Just like the myth ‘women live longer than men’ (demonstrably false, men have longer healthier lives than women… They simply have a much higher rate of ‘death by misadventure’, which dramatically skews the ratio as you reach geriatric ages.) “You are what you eat” us dramatically misunderstood. Eating fat doesn’t make you fat, sugar does. Eating cholesterol doesn’t affect your blood cholesterol, again, blame sugar, both complex (starch, carb) and simple sugars (sugar, HFCS) do terrible things to the human body.
