More videos.

RED-S activist and former professional runner Tina Muir has cultivated a phenomenal set of videos on her YouTube channel, Running for Real. Here she enlists the help of medical professionals to answer specific RED-S related questions, ranging from identification of RED-S to disordered eating to recovering from RED-S while training. Her videos nicely complement the videos on Out of the RED-S!


New podcast episode.

Dr. Erin Fredrickson, a family medicine resident physician and accomplished runner, goes deep in this new episode of Out of the RED-S. Are you trying to get out of the RED-S, but don't know where to start? Erin gives real life advice on how to take the first extraordinarily difficult steps to get out of the RED-S.

Tips from a male triathlete on overcoming RED-S.

In this opinion piece, male triathlete Matt Bach describes dwindling energy and performance decrements. These were finally diagnosed as manifestations of RED-S. Read this to learn how he took steps to regain adequate energy availability, including prioritizing rest by introducing regular off-seasons. Other important steps he took to help direct him toward health included finding a doctor familiar with RED-S, sleeping more, increasing his caloric intake, lifting, and abstaining from any supplemental hormones (e.g., birth control in women and testosterone in men).
