Nutrient Deficiencies

Women who are athletes may be more susceptible to certain nutrient deficiencies (such as iron, calcium, and vitamin D) than men, according to new research.

This may be because female athletes are more likely to be restrictive with their eating, which can lead to greater risk for deficiencies.

If you’re not sure you’re on the right track, it can help to talk with a dietitian who specializes in sports performance. Or, when it comes to your diet, focus on getting more nutrients rather than fewer calories.
