Home / Health / Yo-Yo Dieting Not Harmful???
I was glancing through a prominent women's magazine this morning and had to laugh out loud. I've increasingly seen the "News Flash" or "Breaking News" articles that either say something's going to harm you (when it hasn't ever been a threat) or something's suddenly good for you (when in the past, it was a no-no). I'm confused!

Yo-Yo Dieting Not Harmful???

I was glancing through a prominent women’s magazine this morning and had to laugh out loud.  I’ve increasingly seen the “News Flash” or “Breaking News” articles that either say something’s going to harm you (when it hasn’t ever been a threat) or something’s suddenly good for you (when in the past, it was a no-no).  I’m confused!

I understand technology enables scientists to discover new tests and studies on past issues, but, come on people, this is ridiculous!  The most recent tidbit of breaking news for we women is that yo-yo dieting no longer is a health hazard- really???  I have (in Paris Hilton’s trendy word) a “HUGE” problem with that.  Not only does yo-yo dieting ruin your metabolism, it has worse psychological side-effects that could take years to undo.  What are these people thinking to even say such a thing to vulnerable women who are desperate to lose weight.

The other thing that really pissed me off was the fact that they didn’t even have an article about their claim.  It was just there -in a bright yellow, magazine bubble – for everyone to read (and believe with no proof) that it’s true.  God help the media if they think that we are that stupid!  Well, I’m not going to fall for it; you better not either.  Go with the facts, ladies.  Don’t believe everything you read; do the research yourself.   And do what’s right for you -what works and is healthy.  We’ll do an article on the pitfalls of yo-yo dieting.  Be well.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone
