Influence of Binge Eating among Kids, Adults and Athletes Brattleboro VT

Body Fat Restrictions: “Making weight”, “reducing body fat percentages” or creating a more sculpted body image are only some of the pressure points routinely applied to male and female athletes by coaches and judges every day.
