I'd also like to add that I find it very stupid that the focus seems to be entirely on girls.
Evgeni Plushenko admitted to not eating more than an apple a day before Vancouver. If you look at the pics of him at Euros that season compared to the Olympics - at Euros he looked fit and healthy, in Vancouver he was a pale shadow. (Take a look at the way his costume fits at Euros, then doesn't fit at the Olys. Says it all.)
Max Aaron broke his back lifting weights to try and put on weight! (Admittedly, this is while he was playing hockey...)
Joshua Farris openly celebrated putting on weight on Twitter last summer.
Yagudin was another who said he was eating little before Salt Lake City.
I was watching a video interview with Jason Brown from when he was sixteen-almost-seventeen. He'd just grown three inches. The interviewer asked him how much he weighed now, and Jason answered "135". The interviewer expressed surprise, and when Jason asked, "Is that bad?" the interviewer replied, "You look like you're bigger than that, that's good!"
So it's not just the girls who are hit with it, it's the boys too, only they're often under pressure from BOTH directions - to gain weight (muscle) and lose.
Adam Ripppon is other... he looks so much slim than other season, he did it for Quads, it was necessary, he said
