Here are a few tips to help teen athletes stay on top of their physical condition:
*Keep track of your periods. It's easy to forget when you had your last menstration, you can do this by keeping a calendar in your gym bag and mark down when your period starts and stops and if the bleeding is particularly heavy or light. By doing this you will realize if you start missing periods, you'll know right away and you'll have accurate information to give to your doctor.
*Don't skip meals or snacks. Girls who are constantly on the go between school, practice, and competitions may be tempted to skip meals and snacks to save time. But eating now will improve performance later, so stock your locker or bag with quick and easy favorites such as bagels, string cheese, unsalted nuts and seeds, raw vegetables, granola bars, and fruit.
*Visit a dietitian or nutritionist who works with teen athletes. He or she can help you get your dietary game plan into gear and determine if you're getting enough key nutrients such as iron, calcium, and protein. And if you need supplements, a nutritionist can recommend the best choices.

*Do it for you. Pressure from teammates, parents, or coaches can turn a fun activity into a nightmare. If you're not enjoying your sport, make a change. Remember: It's your body and your life. You — not your coach or teammates — will have to live with any damage you do to your body now.
