Pree-Teens Look to Steroids as "Magic Pill" for Fashionable Figures
Healthy fitness guru joins doctors, educators, coaches, event organizers, and others in urging young people to do things the old-fashioned way…with diet and exercise
In an alarming trend that has continued to grow since the early 1990's, government and university studies show that as many as 5% of high school girls and 7% percent of middle-school girls admit that they've tried anabolic steroids at least once. While some analyses attribute the increase to girls' rising participation in sports, it is also clear that "plenty of girls and boys are using steroids to look toned and muscular without having to work out or watch what they eat," reports healthy fitness "guru" Anthony Ellis.
"Our society is hooked on the 'magic pill' concept and these young people are getting hooked on steroids," says Ellis. Children as young as nine covet the sexy bodies of their fit-and-trim celebrity, rock star, and athletic idols, "but they don't want to do the work," he explains.
Ellis notes that most young girls are completely unaware that steroid use will cause physical changes like an increase in facial hair, a deepening of the voice, severe acne, and smaller breasts, as well as psychological changes including paranoia, hallucinations and angry outbursts known as 'Roid Rage.
"Girls are risking their lives taking illegal steroids to make themselves feminine and they end up more masculine than ever," says Ellis. "They're experimenting with the same testosterone pills, shots and creams that professional baseball players who are three times their size and twice their age are using. The risks are terrifying and the results aren't much better."
Seeing is Believing
Ellis, a self-proclaimed "average guy who was fed up with being a skinny, 135 pound weakling," transformed his own life with all-natural, muscle gaining techniques especially designed for people who have trouble with weight gain. "I gained 32 pounds of muscle in 12 weeks, I reduced my body fat from 10% to 7%, and I did it naturally," he says. "And I want to help people, achieve the same results without putting their lives at risk."
Ellis notes that there are more than 70,000 healthy fitness fans in 100 countries worldwide that have changed their bodies and their lives with his program.
The Better Way
Ellis' manual Gaining Mass! is a complete, step-by-step training and nutritional program for hardgainers. Based in nature not chemistry, Gaining Mass! is written for beginners, but contains cutting-edge information that will benefit even the most experienced fitness follower. At the core of the program are sane, rational, total-health-oriented ideas on how to structure a diet to keep fat gain to an absolute minimum, what nutritional supplements actually work for gaining mass, and even the best time to eat for increased muscle gain and minimize fat gain.
Ellis also offers a detailed section on losing fat. "I've learned some incredible fat loss techniques that can supercharge a person's metabolism and increase the body's fat burning ability." The comprehensive look at fat loss is complete with pre-set diets, and ways to "drop excess fat and reveal your 6-pack that's hiding underneath…and all without harmful chemicals or illegal drugs," says Ellis.
"It's not all about eating," Ellis is quick to point out. That's the reason Gaining Mass! also addresses the best way to train and which exercises to avoid when training to gain mass, and how to structure a training routine to reduce gym time and increase results. "It can all be done naturally," Ellis says emphatically. "You just need to know what to do."
