We may have to take that New Year's resolution about dieting and exercising a bit more seriously. But if you feel a bit bored when it comes to the moving part, scientists may be starting to understand why.
A new study revealed that yoyo-dieting, or the repeated cycle of weight loss and gain, may only lead to more substantial weight gain when the diet stop.

You would think that going on a "diet" would help trim your waistline, but when it comes to diet soda, it's actually found to be linked to greater belly fat in adults 65 years of age and older.
