I've run cross country for the past 5 years and I've had an eating problem for the past 6 years. I read an article that said that a lot of cross country girls have eating disorders because cross country runners are "suppose" to be thin and that these eating disorders combined with running 50 to 60 miles per week can cause osteoporosis to form in the teenage years and therefore cause injuries such as stress fractures. I've had a stress fracture in my leg for the past 4 years and it hasn't healed so I'm thinking that maybe it's caused by osteoporosis. Has anyone experienced this? Anyone know how or if I can reverse the effects of osteoporosis? I wish I would have realized that I was causing this much damage to myself at an earlier point, but I just admitted for the first time to myself and to my boyfriend that I have an eating disorder and that I am anorexic. It's a little late to realize it now. Advice?
