They discuss REDS, or Relative Energy Deficiency Syndrome, which is the result of insufficient caloric intake associated with excessive energy expenditure. 

Consequences of this low-energy condition can have many physical and psychological impacts that affect performance. The BJI women’s sports health program is on the leading edge of identifying and treating REDs with a holistic approach.
