Eating Disorder Dynamics

When evaluating an athlete for disordered eating or the female athlete triad, remember that the pathology is not always centered in the athlete. We had a coach who was telling athletes, "Every pound you gain will add 30 seconds to a minute to your time." Disordered eating, amenorrhea, and stress fractures were the result for at least one athlete. The coach was part of the pathology: When that stress was removed, the athlete gained weight, started menstruating, healed her fractures, and began setting personal bests.
