Yo-Yo Dieting Increases the Risk of Death from Heart Disease
A new study, presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2016, finds that so-called yo-yo dieting (or weight cycling, when a person loses weight and regain it fast) may increase the death risk from heart disease among senior women with normal weight.
For their study, the scientists divided 158,063 postmenopausal women into four groups: stable weight, maintained weight loss, and weight cycling. They followed the participants for 11.4 years.
Having analyzed the received data, the researchers have come to the conclusion that women of normal weight who subsequently experienced the yo-yo effect were 3.5 time more likely to die from cardiac attack compared to those women whose weight was stable.
