To an athlete, an injury or illness, change in coach or retirement from sport may feel like a traumatic event. As a result of this stressful time, the incidence of disordered eating or eating disorder behaviors has the potential to increase.
Maintaining eating disorder recovery during this stressful time can be difficult, however, it is definitely possible!
"I tried the recovery thing, but it didn't work." In recovery from an eating disorder, it's easy to believe that a single slip up means it's all over.
Our diet-obsessed culture has hijacked protein and put it on a pedestal as a nutrient that will promote weight loss and help us eat less of those “bad” carbs and fats. The result has been fad diets that are high in protein.

But we know, in addition to the “typical demands” of this time of year, struggling with an eating disorder makes it a million times more complicated.
What if there is a way to turn negativity into posiyivity?
