No No, Yo-Yo! Study Finds Cyclical Dieting Leads To Higher Risk Of Death


A new study by Korean researchers reports yo-yo dieting can increase the risk of death. According to UPI, the study found while weight cycling did make people with obesity have a lower chance of developing diabetes, there was also downside to the practice. The loss of weight usually brings on a reduction of energy during exercise and during daily activities. The researchers say this, along with increased hunger, produces a "perfect metabolic storm" for dieters to regain weight. In fact, experts actually estimate that 80 percent of dieters regain their weight. What's more, a 2017 study also found that weight cycling among people with coronary heart disease can even lead to a higher risk of stroke, heart attack and mortality.

  • Postmenopausal Women With Excess Belly Fat At Higher Risk For Premature Death

    Having excess belly fat could be a life or death condition for women who've reached menopause. According to UPI, postmenopausal women with a body mass index between 18.5 and 24.9 inches with a high waist circumference are at risk. Women with a waist measurement of 88 cm (34.64 in.) have a higher risk of dying compared to those with normal BMI and no belly fat.
