Eating disorders are affecting the general population at increasing rates. While the data on prevalence widely varies, researcher have found a positive correlation between dieting behaviors and focus on weight with incidence of disordered eating (DE) and eating disorders (EDs). However, the data available does not take into account those living with undiagnosed EDs. Furthermore, multiple studies have shown that athletes are uniquely vulnerable to the development of EDs and prevalence is even higher amongst this population compared to non-athletes. Sports dietitians hold a critical opportunity, and responsibility, to provide supportive care to their athletes that promotes health and performance while minimizing potential for harm, including providing evidence- based recommendations that reduce potential for development of DE and EDs.
