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.”
