Just Say No to Yo-Yo Dieting

With bathing suit season just around the corner, it is becoming more and more tempting to avoid the warnings and turn to quick weight loss, yo-yo dieting as a last ditch attempt to lose the extra weight before summer.

The problem is yo-yo,  fad diets that promise quick results can create short-term weight loss, followed by long-term weight gain.  In other words, you could be trading a few slimmer days for months or years of added weight.  So, before you choose a fad diet to “quickly” take off  those pesky pounds, ask yourself  one question. Is the goal to lose  weight and get reacquainted with a healthier, slimmer you, or do you really want to “fake it” for a day or two?  If the ultimate goal is to lose weight,  please don’t do something that can cause you to gain more than you bargained for.
