London: Older women who want to slim down could be doing more harm than good if they don’t manage to stick to the diet, experts have warned.According to a new study, over-50s who managed to lose weight before piling it back on again increased their risk of heart disease.Researchers from Wake Forest University in North Carolina looked at risk-factors that contributed to type 2 diabetes and heart problems in post-menopausal women.They found that although bad cholesterol, blood pressure, triglycerides, and blood sugar all improved with weight loss, they returned to pre-diet levels and in some cases, to even higher levels, if the pounds were put back on.“In this group of women, weight loss and maintaining that loss offers the most health benefit, but therein lies the problem,” a newspaper quoted study leader Daniel Deavers as saying.
