Great article! I totally agree with the calorie concept--and, yeah, RED-S is everywhere, not just the pros. I think a lot of athletes become over-focused on weight loss/maintenance so that it's hard for them grasp that they need to "feed the beast."

Thank you!

It's certainly nice to see a lot more awareness recently, but sadly most people tend to learn more about this topic and make changes only when they absolutely have to... I do think the culture around caloric intake, weight loss and energy availability is changing though!
