New research shows that women whose weight fluctuates within a short period of time are less likely to be healthy.
The study was presented in a poster format at an American Heart Association conference in Texas that focused on the epidemiology of heart disease.
Among the participants in the study who self-reported having lost and regained over 10 pounds within a year, 82 per cent were less likely to have an optimal body mass index.
Full details of the researchers methodology and findings were not available.
