Hanna then talked about how she started “counting calories” after the two players transferred from Fresno State to Miami.
“Going to Miami, obviously Haley and I were trying to prepare, trying to be the best basketball we could be,” Hanna said. “Trying to fuel our bodies. If we do something, we’ll do it 100%. There’s no middle ground. So, it’s extreme, right? That’s how our minds work.”
“It started to get very toxic with, ‘We need to eat… a certain number of calories a day,'” Hanna added. “But we’re burning so many calories. We’re not getting enough.”
The twins hired a nutritionist in January to prioritize their health.

On May 19, the twins provided a video update detailing the way they ate while at Fresno State.
“It got extremely bad when we were in Fresno,” Haley said. “I remember, just going through the timeline with you guys, my mom had to communicate, she never told us this until later, but she had to communicate with our trainers there because she knew we were starving.”
Hanna revealed that she experienced hair loss while Haley opened up about her hormonal imbalance due to her poor diet.
The two turned to Kathryne “Kat” Padgett, a dietitian who helped the two athletes increase their calorie and carbohydrate intake.
“Their maintenance calories, the number of calories to maintain their body weight, were found to be 2,300 calories on average for their activity level as college athletes,” Padgett said in the video. “What they were actually eating was pretty amazing.

“Actually, they were eating about 1,300 calories per day, which is unrealistic. What’s even crazier is that they were only eating 30 grams of carbs per day.”
At the end of the video, the twins said they were “in a great place” as they shared their ride.
“We want to help people, we really want to help people,” Haley said. “So feel free to reach out. Don’t be afraid to talk to someone and admit it.”
The twins graduated from Miami in May and opted out of a fifth year of NCAA eligibility.
