Nina Silic: The Detriments of Crash Dieting

 



Cover girl Nina Silic spent years yo-yo dieting in a bid to look ‘thin’ as she pursued a dancing career followed by the focus of becoming a pro bikini model. At 25 years of age the damage she had done to her body through crash dieting and excess cardio caught up with her: she was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism and PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), and discovered her three-year hip pain was a prolonged case of tendonitis and bursitis.
