    The Easiest Weight Loss Hack You Haven’t Tried Yet

    When it comes to losing weight, the top strategies will always be nutrition and physical activity, so it makes sense to focus on those two things the most. But, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re the only ways you can drop weight. One significant addition? Quality sleep.

    Weight fluctuation can be harmful to your health if you keep losing and gaining

    Weight fluctuation throughout the course of a day is normal. Weight fluctuation throughout the course of your life, though, can be harmful.

    We should strive to maintain a lifelong, consistent healthy weight. Fluctuation in large amounts throughout your life — that lose-gain-lose-gain cycle so many of us battle, the so-called “yo-yo dieting” — can tax the cardiovascular system, set the stage for diabetes, slow metabolism and make it increasingly difficult to lose weight. It also can permanently stretch skin out of shape.

    Weight fluctuation also increases chances of a heart attack.

    “For every one-and-a-half to two-pound change in weight fluctuation, the risk of any coronary or cardiovascular event was increased by 4% and the risk of death by 9%,” Dr. Sripal Bangalore, an interventional cardiologist at the NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City, told
