Female Athlete Triad

Spoiler warning: this article is written by a nutritionist who’s focused on helping people achieve a very specific lean body type. This is not me advocating a focus on that body type, and some of the language in this article may be offensive or triggering to some people who are working to decrease their focus on achieving a certain figure. Why am I posting it, then? Because I know far too many women (and men!) who think that they’re “being healthy” by restricting and over-exercising, and this is a really good explanation of why that’s profoundly not true.

Just ask your bones.
