Me too

Women's Health Australia - - HEALTH -

Puma WH Next Fit­ness Star Laura Basta shares her own ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing too lean.

“Re­cently, I got my pe­riod for the first time in three years, just by not be­ing as lean as I was. I’m think­ing the weight I’m at now is ideal for my body.

A sim­i­lar thing hap­pened to a friend I train with. Her doc­tor told her she’d been too lean for too long, and if she kept go­ing the way she was, she wouldn’t be able to have chil­dren. She had med­i­cal treat­ment and added more fat to her diet, and she fi­nally got her pe­riod.

We were both ex­cited – which might seem bizarre, but it’s such a good thing! My body is back to nor­mal.”
