    After controlling for age and body mass index (BMI) at the beginning of the study in 1993, mild cyclers gained an average of 6.7 pounds more than non-cyclers, and severe cyclers gained approximately 10.3 lbs more than noncyclers between 1993 and 2001.

    Weight cyclers preferred to change their diet rather than to exercise to control their weight.

    Severe weight cyclers were 20 percent less likely than noncyclers to use frequent exercise as a weight control strategy.

    Weight Cyclers 80-150% More Likely to Binge Eat

    Mild weight cyclers were 80 percent more likely to engage in binge eating than noncyclers.
