Dangers of Yo-Yo Dieting

It usually begins New Years Eve with the resolution to finally lose those 10 pounds. When the weight is lost, you relax and the weight comes back on. Then you make a new resolution to lose the weight again for the summer season. You lose it and then it comes back again. This trend is called yo-yo dieting and it’s more of a health risk than you might know. People who are on this trend are more likely to have issues such as: liver problems, loss of muscle, lower metabolism, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, cancer and shortened life span.

A healthy lifelong lifestyle is the ultimate way to go. Going back and forth on your weight is only going to lead to more issues. Start small and make the changes a habit!
