RED-S + Amenorrhea


I had the honor of talking with Degreed Sports Nutritionist Kyla Chanelle, on the dangers of dipping into energy deficit. She works 1:1 with athletes workout and fuel smarter to avoid or heal from RED-S and consequently for many women, get their period back.

This conversation was fascinating to me as I have incurred quite the energy deficit myself after 11 years of eating disorders and abusing exercise to maintain a small body weight.

Signs of RED-S are;

-stress fractures

-amenorrhea

-insomnia

-long recovery time from workouts

-Gastrointestinal problems

-cold all the time

-sluggish metabolism

 Hey Babe, 

I WISH I had a "big sister" during my ED Recovery-- Some one who has had many of the same thoughts, feelings,+ fears as I, Someone would would support me in what I needed to do next to achieve full recovery. 

Recovery is HARD + there are so many aspects of it that I was not prepared for which is why I now coach women through this process. If you are struggling then reach out, I'm here to help :)
