    I think it would be interesting to hear about a bodybuilders prespective on having a good physique vs. the general public

    e.g. most people who work out say that obesity can be fixed through hard work while those who dont say metabolism and genetics

    The only psychology I know of is the hardgainer mentality:

    "I already eat enough food; I should gain weight right?"

    "Gyms are scary and intimidating places."

    I've had about as much PsycINFO as I can handle. Had to write a paper relating judgment and decision making heuristics to public policy, and the week before, one on psychological problems involved with sentencing juvenile sex offenders. Sports and exercise sounds way more fun.
