IS THIS YOU? 

  • I’m confused about the right proportions of carbs, fats, and proteins to eat before, during, and after practice and games

  • I am in a sport that makes me feel self-conscious about my body 

  • My coach told me I’d be faster if I lost weight

  • All of the diet advice I’ve seen for athletes is conflicting and overwhelming. Should I go plant-based? Keto? Fasting? Shakes? HELP!

From sport to unhealthy obsession - Athletes and Eating Disorders 

Ballet Class

Certain sports place an emphasis on physique and this often leads to discussions about dieting amongst teammates and sometimes even coaches. Depending on personality type, this can be taken to an extreme. 

 

Diet culture and sports is a harmful mix. The very personality traits that contribute to a person being an outstanding athlete (perfectionism, attention to detail, drive), also place them at higher risk for taking diets to an extreme and possibly even developing an eating disorder. 

 

Studies show that eating disorders are more prevalent in athletes than the general population. Certain sports place more emphasis on physique and may even require weigh-ins, again drawing attention to appearance rather than performance. Some athletes restrict their food and then find themselves binging after events, creating a vicious and unhealthy cycle.
