Eating disorders are all around us. For the female and weight-class athlete, those competing in aesthetic sports, there's tremendous societal pressure surrounding how an athlete should physically look.
We often forget that there is an emotional component to nutrition and exercise. We must continue to address the athlete beyond that of sport. They are human and most of the time at greatest risk of developing chronic injury and disease states; especially, upon athletic retirement.
It's inevitable for competitive athletic participation to come to an end and the learned behaviors relating to nutrition and exercise upon that of athletic participation are significant factors that must be addressed to assist the athlete in developing a healthy relationship with food, exercise and a newfound love for themself beyond that of sport.
Check out this video from youtube - starring a US Volleyball star - addressing mental health and eating disorder in sport.
It is my job to help the athlete achieve a sustainable and enjoyable nutrition and exercise regimen that promotes #AChampionForLIFE.
