Dangers of Yo-Yo Dieting

Ask a question
Losing weight quickly, then regaining it, and repeating this process several times is referred to as yo-yo dieting. The yoyo effect is dangerous for your health and can be psychologically demoralizing.

Effects of Yo-Yo Diets on Health

Regained weight is increasingly difficult to lose, as the body remembers the effects of deprivation caused by the succession of diets during the years and stores more in reserve in preparation for future diets. This can lead to the progressive development of obesity.

Yo-yo dieting can also lead to a shortened life expectancy, a decrease of "good” cholesterol, and depressive disorders related to successive failures.

This form of dieting prevents those who practice them from learning good eating habits.
