I am doing my senior project on eating disorders and how they can be caused by competitive sports. I was just wondering if people could post thoughts, opinions, and concerns about the topic. Whether or not you think it's okay for athletes to lose weight? If you have ever gotten pressure from coaches or teammates to lose weight? If you have ever had an eating disorder that was caused by competitive sports. Anything that relates to this topic that can give me more insight on this issue. Thank you
It's definitely not the safest route, and not advisable. If you're looking foe a healthier alternative, I would try using Vita Coco instead of sports and energy drinks. It's low calorie, tasty, and is more effective than those sports drinks. I lost weight by replacing it as my drink of choice for work outs, and became healthier for it.
