Yo-Yo dieting; the acting of gaining and then losing weight can be dangerous. Every time you gain weight your heart has to pump harder and your lungs have to breathe faster. Your liver has to handle the extra fat stored there. But it is not only your body that suffers as this can also have a negative effect on your self-esteem. Give yourself a 3-5 pound range and work to stay in it.
