Women who engage in binge eating gained 5 pounds more in next 8-12 years than women who did not according to a study from researchers Harvard Medical School.
This was independent of weight cycling, age, or body mass index (BMI).
The data was taken from 2476 young and middle-aged women in the Nurses’ Health Study II who provided information on intentional weight losses between 1989 and 1993 and then completed a questionnaire in 2000-2001 about recent intentional weight losses, weight control practices, and weight concerns.
