it all Started quite harmless – as a Hobby, “passion,” as Baer says. The Sensitivity to trained three times a week, resulting in four-, later five – and six but soon. “I needed more and more, I love the feeling, to go beyond my limits and finally, the Bodybuilding were competitions an optimum goal, to prove something to myself,” she says. In addition, the topic of nutrition has become increasingly important. The consequences of this: “My self-esteem began more and more to the Bodybuilding Lifestyle. At once I could not decide rationally, but subordinated everything to the Sport and the food. I was temporarily controlled as foreign.”

she took in a matter of days 20 pounds

A vicious circle that brought her body quickly to the limit of its capacity. Bear gave the Job 100 per cent, then in the Training, even 120 percent. “I also paid attention to the smallest Detail meticulously to the diet, made several diets.” You got banned very much, to finally get the necessary to build muscles and to maintain the lowest possible fat percentage. “The aim was to get the best possible sporty Version out of me.” But the Hunger and constant Overtraining eventually led to sleep disturbances. And something the Athlete has made to create more and more: she suffered – particularly at night – eating attacks, as she calls it.

“You have to think of it, that one completely loses control, you’re high, can’t stop eating.” You’ve crammed into these moments then everything is purely what you just had in the house, chocolate, biscuits, ice Cream and Pizza and often all together. In this way, you have tried to conceal their dissatisfaction. Sometimes they have not eaten for days easy, and trying all at the same time, to compensate for excessive sports units. The result: The Sensitivity increased so after the competitions within the space of a few days 20 pounds – and later. A big stress for the body.

Today, it is your significantly better, Samira bear, but it is still in outpatient therapy. The Sport she wanted in spite of what had happened, not to give up. “Is and remains my passion,” she says. You haven’t but obtained a different, healthier relationship to the Whole, to be so strict. “I learned to be myself again appreciate, you can again make your own and sensible decisions. And I began, with my body to accept and feel it.”

Say: your Knowledge, along with the Experienced of the Fitness Community. “But I have to take it slow, to be able to all continue to keep an eye on, and my workload only with time continuously increase.” The Whole have had more drastic consequences than first thought, says the muscular woman. “But: Never give up.
