3 Causes of The Body’s Yo-Yo Effect

Losing weight is often one of the most difficult things that an individual may do in life. Though dieting is not the only challenge that anyone may experience, learning the art of getting the weight off and keeping it off can be an ongoing frustration for many.

Having said that, this ongoing frustration can lead to a type of dieting that is normally referred to as Yo-Yo dieting. Because Yo-Yo dieting can easily destroy a healthy metabolism, it is important that everyone understands as much as they can about what it is, its causes and how to avoid this cyclic dieting altogether.

What is the Yo-Yo Effect?
According to Kelly D. Brown from Yale University, this type of dieting is currently known by the term weight cycling. Since this type of dieting simulates the movements of an up and down motion, professionals in this health and medical field refer to weight cycling as the Yo-Yo effect. Typically, when a person experiences this type of dieting, the weight loss may be in cycles that ranges from as low as 5 – 10 pounds to as much 40 or more pounds. For instance, the individual may lose 10 pounds in January, keep it off for a few months, and then gain it all back and more. Unfortunately, if this horrific cycle is not recognized and discontinued, this pattern can go on and on for many years. In some situations, the person may even give up completely on reaching their desired weight goal.

3 Causes of the Body’s Yo-Yo Effect

  • 1. Losing large amounts of weight: in a short period of time is one of the major causes of the yo-yo diet effect. In fact, in some cases, people can easily become professional dieters since they know how to lose significant amounts of weight in short periods of time. For instance, fasting is one of the best ways to drop the pounds swiftly without having to following a burdensome diet plan that is difficult for anyone people to follow. Also, when the weight has been lost by not eating at all, the stomach will shrink and the reduction in calories is normally idea. On the other hand, the yo-yo dieting will also begin since this weight is also very easy to gain back.
  • 2. Changing Diet Programs: As mentioned above, some people become professional dieters without even realizing it. This is especially true since there are many different diets that really work, specific ally if they are followed closely as prescribed. For instance, the Atkins diet cuts out the carbs (sugar, ice cream, pastas) so it is a really great way to lose weight. Another great diet limits the amount of fat that can be eaten and it also will do a great job. Based on the individual, they may decide to try one or both from time to time. Unfortunately, this change in diet programs may also lead to cycle dieting and problems with the person’s metabolism.
  • 3. Not being able to keep the weight off: For some people, getting the weight off may not be a problem that they struggle with. On the other hand, the problems that they experience may be due to the fact that they cannot keep the weight off once lost. Therefore, not being able to keep the weight off with a healthy daily diet can be the cause of this type of cyclic dieting.

The Yo-Yo diet effect can be caused by a number of different things. Not being able to keep the weight off, changing diet programs frequently and losing large amounts of weight too quickly are at 3 of the top causes of yo-yo dieting.
