    Re: Roid gut

    there are theories on this... some say it is the GH, some say insulin, other say it is too much food

    i would say it is probably a little of everything but a big part is eating too much dry food for a long period of time and too much meal frequency .. does a number on digestion

    And one thing you see these days very often on stage is many guys have very poor midsection control or they just simply don't care.

    This. So-called GH gut isn't, as was thought (and still is by some) a permanent thing either. One of the worst examples used, RX's very own Dave Palumbo, no longer has such a gut.

    Re: Roid gut

    The 'roid' gut is a combination of a lot of things. It's a topic that is always under discussion in the bodybuilding community.

    Steroids/AAS actually have very little to do with it. Excessive amounts of insulin are what is causing the distended abdomens. You have the most insulin receptors on your stomach and overdoing exogenous insulin will promote fat storage as visceral fat in the stomach region. This is fat storage UNDERNEATH the abdominal muscles. Even though the competitor will have a 6 pack, he still has a large amount of fat under neath the abdominals causing the pot belly type look.

    HGH, when abused, will promote the growth of the internal organs which will further distend the belly. Excessive amounts of HGH also promote insulin resistance which increase abdominal fat stores.

    Lastly, a lot of the distention is simply due to the sheer amount of food needed to be eaten to support the amount of muscle competitors have. Couple that with diuretics the last couple of days before a show (which really constipate most people), and not regularly using fibre/digestive health supplements and you will have a big pot belly from fecal matter stored up in the intestines.

    I am a big advocate of digestive enzymes, psyllium husk and probiotics. As bodybuilders, we are constantly overloading our digestive systems and those three supplements will go a long way in promoting optimal digestive health.

    Take a high quality probiotic first thing every morning with a glass of lemon water before breakfast. Look for a probiotic supplement that is stored in the fridge. Remember that probiotics are a live bacteria and a product stored at room temperature will have a greatly reduced potency. A good probiotic supplement shouldn't be cheap.

    Supplement with digestive enzymes with 2-3 meals per day. In particular look for the digestive enzymes proteases and peptidases, as these enzymes split proteins into small peptides and individual amino acids.

    Psyllium husk is the highest natural food source of soluble fibre you can obtain. The majority of the fibre you intake from your daily diet is insoluble fibre. The key benefit of soluble fibre is that soluble fibre absorbs water in your stomach and creates a gel. It gives your intestines a sort of 'internal scrubbing' as it passes through. It will help keep you regular and the faster you can remove toxins from your body, the less likely they are to be re-absorbed.
