What to consider when approaching weight loss as an athlete

The body doesn’t like to change weight rapidly; it takes time to increase or reduce body weight healthily and for long term results. Extreme dietary attempts for fast weight loss and changes to body composition can be harmful and increase the risk of illness or injury, especially with a high training load.
