Topatlete Louise Carton testifies about eating disorder: Shame, angry at myself and five year periods
More sport Topatlete Louise Carton has many years with an eating disorder striven. “If I came at the start of a match, I was afraid that the others consider me too thick would that everyone would see it, if I have a half a kilo was added. That idea and that fear names all my life”, says the 25-year old West-Flemish athlete in a blog post.

Louise Carton was five years ago, Belgian beloftekampioene in the cross-country. In 2015, crowning them European champion in the U23, then they are also three times the Belgian title at the damesprofs wegkaapte. Then she went still with a few minor placings at the european CHAMPIONSHIPS of the five kilometres to go. The past few months was the Ostend in sukkelstraatje, in a blog post she says now why.

“You have not heard much in recent months and there are several reasons for that,” says Caron. “To get the whole story to tell would I a book to write, but there is one aspect that I discussed. Three weeks ago I got to hear that I have a stress fracture have at the height of my sacrum (sacrum). My first reaction was: ‘why is that there anyway?" That is a very strong bot, I have very gradually built up after my last injury and am just eight weeks out. At the same time I thought also: you really know you secretly know how that is.”

Too thick

“It all started when I was quite a few years ago in Leuven for the first time, a range body fat. That was actually good, but they told me that I was to be the summer to have a maximum of one kilo could lose to peak for an important race. That one sentence, for me, was apparently a trigger. I got the feeling that I was thick. Suddenly, I began to question what and how much I ate. I tried myself all kinds of things from, lost always weight, but always gain muscle so my body fat percentage remained the same.”

“that's When I enlisted the help of my nutritionist. Thanks to her advice I got a balanced diet that met the needs of an athlete. As a result, I muscle mass won, my weight had retained, and therefore my fat mass bright was decreased. So We had to adjust, but I noticed that I secretly was happy with that result. For me that was the new norm. I had to eat more, but I had such a horror to come that I was as good as any day on the scale went. (...) I thought constantly about what I was eating, how much, when. (...) My body was screaming so hard for power that I binge eating got. I ate just everything what I have in the cupboards could be found. Afterwards, I felt so guilty that I went to compensate a meal or store in the days after eating less. The binge eating and so also the compensations were, over the years, always but more extreme. I was ashamed of me so hard, that I never someone could talk about. (...) I was so frustrated, angry with myself, because I'm not out of the vicious circle affected.”
