This comprehensive, up-to-date book presents the latest research and applied practice to address all of the key issues relating to sport and eating disorders. The book begins by looking at the underlying factors behind the development of disordered eating. It goes on to consider evaluation, diagnosis and treatment across a wide range of sports and assesses the various types of treatment available and the practicalities of implementing treatment programmes. A whole chapter is devoted to the role of the internet, both as a source of information and possible treatment, for athletes with these disorders. The final chapter provides four practical examples and case studies of disordered eating in high-risk sports.

They suggest to coaches how to recognize and deal with such conditions. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Over the past fifteen years, there has been a great increase in the knowledge of eating disorders in sport and effective means of treatment. In this book, the authors draw on their extensive clinical experience to discuss how to identify, manage, treat, and prevent eating disorders in sport participants. They begin by examining the clinical conditions related to eating problems, including descriptions of specific disorders and a review of the relevant literature. Special attention is given to the specific gender and sport-related factors that can negatively influence the eating habits of athletes. The second half of the book discusses identification of participants with disordered eating by reviewing symptoms and how they manifest in sport; management issues for sport personnel, coaches, athletic trainers, and healthcare professionals; treatment; and medical considerations, such as the use of psychotropic medications. A list of useful resources is included in an appendix, as well as a glossary of important terms.

"It had been hours since I ran at track practice that winter, but I hadn't bothered to shower, let alone change clothes. No, I didn't have time for that, because I had found the answer to my prayers. This has to be it. Eat all the fruit you want. Never get fat. Raw. Food. Diet." Rachael Steil clocked in as an All-American collegiate runner; she became a girl clawing for a comeback on a 30-bananas-a-day diet. This year-long struggle with raw food ended when she realized she had to find her self-respect beyond her identity as a successful runner on a perfect diet. Running in Silence opens the door on the secret world of eating disorders. It provides vital insights for those who don't suffer from this disease and an honest and harrowing personal story for those who do. Steil challenges the stigma of eating disorders, looks past appearance, and dives into the heart of obsession.

Existing research on women athletes' risk for eating disorders supports both athletes at greater risk and athletes at lower risk than the general population. This meta-analysis pooled the descriptive statistics from research that utilized the Eating Attitudes Test (EAT) and the Eating Disorder Inventory (EDI) on women athletes to synthesize the existing research. Twenty studies with available sample size, means and standard deviations were included. Weighted means for women athletes were computed and compared to control means and to eating disordered patients means by independent t-tests. Athletes were grouped by Competition Level (recreational, college, elite) and the sports' emphasis on leanness, termed Body Emphasis (yes, no, mixed), and subjected to ANOVAs. Athletes scored higher than controls on the EAT and on EDI subscales Maturity Fears and Interpersonal Distrust. Athletes scored lower than controls on the EDI subscales Body Dissatisfaction and Ineffectiveness. Athletes scored lower then eating disordered patients on the EAT and all EDI subscales. ANOVAs resulted in an interaction effect where athletes in lean emphasis sports scored higher than athletes in non-lean emphasis sports at the recreational competition level, but this was reversed at the elite competition level for EDI subscales Ineffectiveness, Interpersonal Distrust, Maturity Fears, and Interoceptive Awareness. Although women athletes score higher than controls on some measures of eating disorders they are not at greater risk because their scores remain within the normal range and are similar or lower than controls on drive for thinness, bulimia and body dissatisfaction, correlates central to eating disorders. Women athletes also do not approach the pathology seen in eating disordered patients. Some athlete groups may be more at risk than others, such as athletes participating in sports emphasizing leanness at low competition levels, but the influence from moderator variables is complex and many other variables, age, coaches influence, etc., may confound the relationship in unascertained ways.
