The purpose of the study was to provide descriptive
information on nutritional profiles and body weight (BW)
patterns of 6 competitive female body builders (x age = 27)
before, during and after a competition. Precompetition (-28
to -26 d); (-9 to -7 d), competition (-2 to 0 d) and post
competition (+1 to +3 d); (+26 to +28 d) 3-d diet and BW
records were recorded. Diet records were analyzed using the
Nutripractor 6000 nutrient analysis system. Two weeks
precompetition, percent body fat was estimated using skinfold
measurements. All subjects completed a 60-item fixed choice
and open-ended questionnaire concerning menstrual
characteristics, training and dietary practices. A subgroup
(n=2) agreed to collect daily urine samples for one month
prior and one month after competition. Samples were analyzed
for estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P4).
