 What muscle dysmorphia is + its various risk factors
 Similarities between the driving forces of muscle dysmorphia + anorexia nervosa
 The issues with moralising health + the problems with #fitspo
 The current limitations of the research in male body image
 Signs + symptoms to look out for, especially if you're worried about a friend or family member
