There’s no doubt that LeanBeefPatty has achieved some great success from flexing her muscles on YouTube. And that kind of success always draws attention from people who immediately say it’s all down to steroids.
While PED use is widespread in the bodybuilding and fitness industry, I find that making such claims without any substantial research is unfair to the girl.
That’s why I’ve spent the last few days going through her YouTube and social media accounts to see if there’s any truth to the claims that her physique isn’t natural.
Here’s what I found.
Is LeanBeefPatty Natty?
There’s no conclusive evidence to suggest that LeanBeefPatty has taken steroids. She even revealed in a recent YouTube video that she hasn’t taken steroids and she doesn’t see any reason to.
She claims that PEDs aren’t necessary to achieve a physique like hers, and she only goes to the gym because she enjoys it, and she likes sharing her progress.
LeanBeefPatty has admitted to taking Gorilla Mind pre workout, cortisol suppressors, rauwolscine and EAAs, but none of these invalidate her natty status.
If you don’t believe LeanBeefPatty, then there are a few features of her physique which imply that she is indeed natural.
Let’s take a look at these in more detail.
Reasons Why LeanBeefPatty Looks Natty
1. Lack of HGH Gut
Many steroid users include human growth hormone (HGH) as part of their steroid cycle. One of the side effects of this is that organs can swell up, and that pushes out the so-called HGH gut.
Looking at many different photos of LeanBeefPatty over the years, there’s no evidence that she suffers from HGH gut which suggests that she doesn’t take steroids.
2. Lack of Facial Hair
One of the most common problems women experience with PEDs is that they start growing facial hair, like a man.
Looking through LeanBeefPatty’s Instagram, it’s clear to see that she doesn’t have any facial hair.
That being said, you could argue that if she did, she’d simply shave it off.
3. Normal Voice Tone
Another common problem female steroid users encounter is a deep, masculine voice.
In fact, some female steroid users have to go through surgery to increase the pitch of their voice.
Having listened to many of LeanBeefPatty’s YouTube videos, it’s clear that she has a normal, feminine voice tone and that she doesn’t experience this side effect.
This suggests that she’s natural and hasn’t taken anabolic steroids.
4. Proportional Shoulders
Oversized shoulders are another common sign of PED use. This is because the deltoids and traps in the upper back have a large number of androgen receptors.
As a result, you often see steroid users with shoulders which are out-of-proportion, and LeanBeefPatty’s shoulders seem to be proportional to the rest of her body.
5. Minimal Vascularity
Most bodybuilders – male and female – desire those popping veins. They’re a good indicator of how much muscle and little fat you have.
But certain types of steroids will produce those vascular veins even if you’re not working out.
Looking at LeanBeefPatty’s Instagram profile, you can see that she only has veins popping out her biceps and forearms, suggesting that she’s natty.
6. Reasonable Body Fat Levels
One of the easiest ways to catch out a fake natty is to see how their body fat levels change when they bulk.
No matter how gifted your genetics are and how much you train, bulking up whilst maintaining a sub 12% body fat as a female if nearly impossible.
The fact that LeanBeefPatty appears to be around 15% body fat after a bulk suggests that she doesn’t use steroids.
She would be much leaner if she did.
Is It Possible To Bulk Up Like LeanBeefPatty Naturally?
I and LeanBeefPatty both believe that it’s possible to naturally achieve a physique like hers.
While it’ll take a lot of time, dedication, and patience, it’s surely achievable.
It’s clear that LeanBeefPatty has good genetics and trains consistently, so with the help of natural supplements (which she’s admitted taking), there’s no reason why she couldn’t have achieved her physique without steroid use.
- LeanBeefPatty has revealed that she’s never taken steroids.
- Looking at all the available evidence, I believe that she’s telling the truth and is natty.
- Despite her claims, LeanBeefPatty hasn’t posted any drug test results, so there’s no definitive way to prove her claim.
That’s all for LeanBeefPatty, but does Joey Swoll take steroids? Or is Andrew Tate natty?
