Yo-yo dieting: What it is and how it can wreck your body

You’d think a drastic nutrition plan would blast away fat; but research shows it’s setting you up for weight gain, disease, and failure.

DURING THE HOLIDAYS, you want to spare yourself the strictness of a typical healthy eating plan. You allow indulgences and missed workouts to pile up a bit more than you should. That extra five pounds you’ve gained? Eh, you chalk it up to bulking season. But come spring—or after the holiday gluttony ebbs—you put your body through the ringer: two-a-day workouts, juice cleanses, pantry sweeps. It’s too much.

Just an hour of yoga a day can lower your blood pressure

Not much for cardio? Try stretching out—it could have a huge payoff for your heart.

Thanks to the good folks at the Centers for Disease Control, we know that about 75 million Americans have—and 59 million more are on the verge of developing—high blood pressure, which can dramatically increase heart disease and stroke risk.

 

Those are some scary numbers.

Of course, if you think or have been told that you’re at risk, taking sensible steps like quitting smoking and exercising can help stave off high BP, also known as hypertension.

But if you’d like to be even more proactive, try yoga: A new study presented to the Cardiological Society of India shows that practicing hatha yoga an hour a day for a month can lower blood pressure even more than lifestyle changes.

In the study, the yogis, who did stretching poses and breathing exercises, had a huge drop in diastolic BP (pressure while your heart is resting) over 24 hours, from a high level (81) to a normal 76. A decrease that drastic could lower stroke risk by 15% and heart disease by 6%.
