Curves starts new plan
Weighting for results: When we take extra kilograms off, it would be nice to
assume that they won't creep back again!
The term ''yo-yo dieting'', (also
known as ''weight cycling'') was
coined by Kelly D Brownell at Yale
University, in reference to the
cyclical up-down motion of a yo-yo.
In this process, the dieter is
initially successful in the pursuit of
weight loss but is unsuccessful in
maintaining the loss long-term and
begins to gain the weight back.
The dieter then seeks to lose the
regained weight, and the cycle
Some research links weight
cycling with certain health risks.
To avoid potential risks, most
experts recommend that obese
adults adopt healthy eating and
regular physical activity habits to
achieve and maintain a healthier
weight for life.
Non-obese adults should try to
maintain their weight through
healthy eating and regular physical
A revolutionary weight loss
programme which aims to put an
end to ''yo-yo'' dieting for New
Zealand women, has been launched
by Curves Rangiora.
The programme, known as Curves
Complete, aims to promote long-
term weight loss by boosting body
metabolism, according to Pam
Saunders from Curves Rangiora.
''We want to end this pattern of
women losing weight and then
quickly gaining it back.
''Curves Complete is designed to
help women lose weight and keep it
off for the long term.''
The reasons for yo-yo dieting are
varied but often include embarking
upon a hypocaloric diet that was
initially too extreme.
At first the dieter may experience
elation at the thought of loss and
pride of their rejection of food.
Over time, however, the limits
imposed by such extreme diets
cause effects such as depression or
fatigue that make the diet
impossible to sustain. Ultimately, the
dieter reverts to their old eating
habits, now with the added
emotional effects of failing to lose
weight by restrictive diet.
Such an emotional state leads
many people to eating more than
they would have before dieting,
causing them to rapidly regain
In theory a person who repeatedly
loses and gains weight should not
have more trouble trying to reach
and maintain a healthy weight than
a person attempting to lose weight
for the first time.
Most studies show that weight
cycling does not affect one's
metabolic rate -- the rate at which
the body burns fuel (food) for
Based on these findings, weight
cycling should not affect the success
of future weight-loss efforts.
Metabolism does, however, slow
down as a person ages.
In addition, older people are often
less physically active than when they
Regardless of your age, making
regular physical activity as well as
healthy eating habits a part of your
life will aid weight loss and improve
''There are many diet plans
available which can help women
lose weight but it's often at the
expense of losing valuable muscle --
which slows down metabolism and
can contribute to a lifetime of yo-yo
dieting,'' Pam Saunders says.
This kind of diet is associated with
extreme food deprivation as a
substitute for good diet and exercise
techniques. As a result, the dieter
may experience loss of both muscle
and body fat during the initial
weight-loss phase (weight-bearing
exercise is required to maintain
muscle). After completing the diet,
the dieter is likely to experience the
body's starvation response, leading
to rapid weight gain of only fat.
This is a cycle that changes the
body's fat-to-muscle ratio, one of
the more important factors in
One study in rats showed those
made to yo-yo diet were more
efficient at gaining weight.
Pam said the Curves programme
takes a holistic approach, combining
a scientifically-proven 30-minute
workout circuit at Curves Rangiora
with one-on-one coaching and
personalised meal plans.
''Most people who are serious
about losing weight know that they
won't get the results they want by
just dieting. They also need to
exercise and they need
encouragement to stick to the plan.''
