This question is mainly for the women who train to get their bodies ready for competition, acheiving super-low body fat to better display hard earned muscles.
I have found myself at the way-low end of the bodyfat range - havn't had a period since March, libido is shot (still!) and my hair has been falling out in handfulls.
I have made some pretty amazing changes over the past few weeks
(see http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...threadid=62296 - "Disordered eating/training recovery journal ").
I was wondering how you deal psychologically with gaining bodyfat post-contest? It is so counter-intuitive, and there is NO information out there on how to do this in a healthy way. It is even socially unacceptable for a woman to want to gain bodyfat - evin if it is critical to her health (and marital happiness!) It seems that most of us got hereto re-claim control of our bodies to combat an eating disorder, where our lives revolved around bodyfat going down, how do you reverse this train of thought?
