Yo yo #dieting associated with increased accumulation of fat, especially around the middle

Recent findings confirmed that a history of weight cycling appears related to body weight excess and abdominal fat accumulation (which is linked to increase risk of diabetes and heart disease). These findings support the importance of designing adequate weight loss programs to achieve long-term weight maintenance and to prevent undesirable and unhealthy weight accumulation.
