Horse Steroids & ADD Are Keeping Hollywood Super Thin !

  1. [​IMG]
    Hollywood’s pseudo elite are following the dangerously thin trend by popping an animal steroid outlawed by the FDA for use in feed and show animals. Clenbuterol works like the banned substance ephedrine by raising the body’s resting metabolic rate and burning fat. It’s not illegal for human consumption and is easily obtained online. European meat contaminated with Clenbuterol made over a hundred people sick enough to need hospitalization for symptoms including increased heart rate, tremors, headache, nausea, fever, and chills. If that’s what some tainted meat does to people imagine how injesting the real thing ****s up your body:

    Legal only for use in horses - [Clenbuterol] was developed as an equine asthma treatment - its use in professional sport is banned in Europe and the U.S.

    But possession and purchase for private use isn’t illegal and ‘clen’, as it’s known, is frighteningly easy to buy over the internet. It was first used by bodybuilders who discovered it can burn fat while increasing muscle mass.
    “It’s a long-acting agent that increases the body’s temperature and heart rate, which helps burn fat, even when the user is not exercising,” says John McVeigh, an expert in substance use.

    The reason behind its ability to build muscle, though, isn’t fully understood. “It’s not been tested on humans - this is an animal vaccine,” says Harrison Pope, a Harvard psychiatrist who has been researching bodybuilding drugs since the Eighties.

    “Most of the data available is veterinary, and it reveals a lot of bad reactions in rats. After taking the drug, their hearts started to stiffen. So it seems safe to predict that clenbuterol in high doses when taken by humans increases the risk of strokes and heart arrhythmia
    But despite the dizziness and palpitations, the ladies who don’t lunch are getting it from their trainers, who sell it as a ’safe’ alternative to steroids. “In looks-obsessed LA, the appeal of this drug to women is obvious,” says Professor Charles Yesalis, head of sports science at Pensylvannia State University.

    “It’s short-sighted, but they see it as a quick fix to get the lean, toned physique popularised by actresses and models.” Brooke Hailey, of LA’s New Directions Eating Disorder Center, agrees. “I see more and more patients with bundles of disordered behaviours: overexercising, over-zealous exclusion of certain foods, the use of anti-anxiety medicines to curb the appetite - it’s the culture and it’s very, very accepted.” Adderall is a drug that’s finding its way into the cocktail mix of cocaine, smoking, dieting and purging that many actresses rely on to curb their hunger.
    [​IMG]Years ago I took ephedrine for a day and I couldn’t stand how hot and jittery it made me feel. If this stuff is stronger the effect must be intolerable.
    Remember when Nicole Richie fainted while shopping at Kitson and adamently refused something to eat? Richie’s stylist, the pencil-thin Rachel Zoe, denies supplying her clients with diet pills or drugs, saying she’s “too much of a control freak” to take them. There are rumors around Hollywood to the contrary, but if she is telling the truth at the very least she sets a bad example with her own emaciated figure.

    [​IMG]The article goes to cite use of the ADD drug Adderall as another quick-fix way to stop eating and get that coveted skeletal look. Women just go to their doctor and claim to have trouble focusing in order to score a prescription.

    I lost 20 pounds in two months by eating right and exercising. It was a matter of finding the right formula to use for eating right and working out. My goal was to get to a size six, though, not look like a skeleton. This is an attainable goal if you set your mind to it. Six years ago I got fit quickly on Body for Life, and this year I lost my stubborn baby weight on Best Shape of your Life. (Body for Life is a great program, but you have to work out every day. For Best Shape of your Life you only workout 2-3 times a week. With each you eat small meals six times a day, and both programs feature workouts that take less than 45 minutes.)

    Pills and supplements are quick fix catch-22s that can cause long-term life-threatening health problems. Unless you’re willing to sell your precious health to the devil, the only way to lose weight is through a sensible diet and exercise program and there are plenty out there that work.

    There’s more at work than simple weight loss with these poor women, though. Victoria Beckham recently said that she thinks she looks terrible naked. Body dysmorphic disorder is a serious mental problem in which someone has a distorted perception of their body and obsesses about it to the point of doing themselves harm. If her tiny body will never satisfy Victoria, she’ll never lose enough weight to be happy with herself.
  2. I would think they would be scared to put such powerful chemicals into their bodies. Side effects could be so dangerous. Of course, I'm the kind of person who reads all the fine print on the Advil bottle.

    "coveted skeletal look"--what's wrong with society???:confused1:
  3. A lot, and this is only the tip of the iceberg..
  4. OMG...that is messed up. I had a friend who took a clenbuterol to loose weight.
  5. Yikes!!!!
  6. WOW1 and i have this and took it for a few days too!! **** i didnt realise how bad it was
  7. Wow, but does it really work?

  8. God only knows.

    These people think that beauty can be measured by a dress size, apparently. :shrugs:

    It's funny how the world rates slightly curvier stars, like Scarlett Johanssen, as being far more attractive than them and yet so many celebs still want to look like cancer victims. :confused1:
  9. The pressures to be thin are too high. Even normal people get sucked in from time to time... I tried hoodia once to see if that would help, but my boyfriend seemed really disgusted when he found out and he's way more imporant to me than being thin.
  10. The thought of it sounds more deadly... They're just slowly killing themselves away.
  11. Sounds like Ephedrine, and has the same side effects. I used to take ephedrine all the time, I worked at a health food store, and with bodybuilders and was always around alot of people who took it. It was too much for me and gave me headaches, so I opted for a diet pill that I found acceptable. It contained ephedrine, but not as potent. It definately worked, but I also worked out alot. (had tons of energy). I think Ephedrine has since been banned in Canada...but everywhere else still sells it. In conclusion, I stopped taking it due to heart palpitations. I figured it wasn't worth messing with my heart. People have died from taking it.
  12. I couldn't handle ephedrine. I get heart palpitations from Claritin D! I almost considered clenbuterol since I'm dying to shape up more and I seem to have hit a plateau, but after researching the bodybuilding forums, found non-stimulant fat-burners. I'll be trying out Lipoderm Ultra, a shaping lotion, and Sesathin from Avant Labs. Both are liked by the bodybuilding community who are crazy about reducing fat. And neither is supposed to give heart palpitations or dizziness. The sesathin is supposed to be really good for the liver, heart and kidneys as well as an anti-inflammatory, like a super fish oil. I'll post when I've tried it to let you all know how it went.
  13. I always seem to be the health crazy lady, but this stuff is AWFUL for you and CAN kill you. Your heart will slowly deteriorate and it can lead to heart attacks at young ages- happens ALL the time. I am far from advocating any of this- and really just hate to see what people do and take to try to fit a mold that they think they need to be..

  14. Just curious, what happened? Did she lose weight? and what side effects did she have? On one of the bodybuilding sites, one competitive builder stated that while he was fine on Clen, afterwards he had the shakes so bad he was in the hospital for 7 days! That really scared me.
  15. That is just terrible. I am so glad I'm not obsessed with my weight! I could not imagine taking horse medicine to be thin.
