How Can You Tell When an Athlete Is Too Thin?
Thornton, James S.
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v18 n12 p124-26,129-30,133 Dec 1990

The physician must determine when leanness is reason for clinical concern. Athletes who do not eat enough to sustain training must either reduce the exercise load or increase nutritional intake.
