Extreme 9 week challenge

Recommended Posts

Old 2000 article but new to me

Young bodybuilder Katsumi Kitamura died of either/ or:

- obsessive use of steroids

- due to dehydration and body ion imbalance brought on by his extreme diet

His before and after body

His diet

The diet is nothing but egg whites and pureed frozen chicken, 24/7 for 9 weeks.

WOW :shock:

He died of heart failure due to severe dehydration and body ion imbalance from his extreme diet. This condition lead to his heart to stop beating. When he was dead, they found that he was 5'8", 240lbs with 5% body fat.

Sure, and that is why it can become this dangerous. Vanity can drive people to extremes. Look at people who do too much plastic surgery. Yikes!

Read this book ages ago, its about the bbing culture in america (california) in the 80s and 90s and the typical psyche of pro builders and gym culture. bit of an eye opener - says builders are outcasts, narcissitic, OCD etc etc

Android, This did the rounds on the internet.... this body builder was a med student... I believe nearly graduated.

He had some VERY different ideas on diet.

What killed him was he was f@#g around with Insulin and HGH.

He has gone glyco several times, blacked out and been rushed to ER during his workouts...

Insulin :evil:
