Yo-Yo Dieting: Forgivable
2010-06-27 【font size: Large Medium Small】  【Close

  This is generally defined as gaining and losing 10 pounds at least five times in your life.

  Though there's no definite evidence that this is harmful, 'some studies have suggested it may be,' says Sharonne Hayes, MD, director of the Women's Heart Clinic at the Mayo Clinic. One University of Michigan study found that people with a history of yo-yo dieting had reduced blood flow to the heart; another study suggested it may also lead to decreased bone mass. The potential upshot: heart and bone problems after menopause.
  However, experts aren't sure whether the yo-yoing itself is the culprit or whether extreme diets lead to nutritional deficiencies that can affect long-term health. To break the cycle, set your sights on a realistic goal and try to maintain that weight. If you must diet, 'aim to lose only a pound or two a month and try not to gain 10 pounds over the winter,' says Hayes. Get yearly cholesterol and blood pressure checks to detect early signs of heart disease.
