Abstract

In an attempt to improve athletic performance, some female athletes develop patterns of disordered eating. The spectrum of disordered eating ranges from mild to severe, with the severe form resulting in anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa. Disordered eating can result in decreased athletic performance, increased morbidity, and occasional mortality.
