SILVA, Luiz  e  GOMES, Rui. Eating disorders in sport: current status and future directions in the study of the psychological factors. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2012, vol.24, n.2, pp. 83-100. ISSN 0103-5665.

This paper focuses on two main goals. In first place, we present the current status on the research about eating disorders in sport contexts. In this case, we point out studies dedicated to the analysis of the incidence of eating disorders in sport and studies that observe the differences between athletes and different sports in the tendency for these problems. Second, we proposed new research directions on this subject, namely the need of analysing the psychological factors that are related with the development of eating disorders on athletes. This research approach has the advantage of helping the prevention of eating disorders on athletes through the promotion of psychological skills that protect athletes from the negative effects of sport practicing, where are included maladaptive eating behaviors.
