The effects of weight cycling on metabolism and health

, : The effects of weight cycling on metabolism and health. Journal of the Canadian Dietetic Associationer 52(2): 101-106

The phenomenon of rapid weight regain after repeated weight loss attempts is a concern to all health professionals and their weight control clients. There is some evidence that weight cycling may result in harmful physical and psychological effects. It has been suggested that weight cycling alters metabolic processes, affects fat distribution, increases the risk of hypertension and heart disease, and results in a higher body weight after each cycle. This paper focuses on the physiological consequences of repeated dieting in efforts to lose weight. Evidence, to date, remains limited and inconclusive, and further investigation into long-term health effects is necessary.
