“Yo-yo dieting” not tied to early death: study

“Our study shows that the act of weight cycling itself does not increase your risk of premature death,” Victoria Stevens of the American Cancer Society in Atlanta told Reuters Health. Her findings are published in the American Journal of Epidemiology. Still, experts don’t recommend yo-yo dieting, but rather slow-paced, sustained weight loss. “While weight cycling may not kill you any sooner, yo-yo dieting is still not good for a whole lot of other reasons,” Judy Caplan, a dietician in private practice in Virginia, told Reuters Health. “Yo-yo dieters are great at losing weight, but not at maintaining the weight loss, which can leave a person demoralized,” said Caplan, who is also a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and was not involved in the new research. Previous research has suggested that yo-yo dieting can slow metabolism and may actually contribute to more weight gain in the long run.
