    Slightly strange question but hey!

    I am just finishing a book on the mindset of dieting and want to be sure that I have terminology correct.

    Now in the Uk we obviously talk about Yo Yoing where people lose weight then regain and then lose again etc.

    I have done an entire chapter on it but not sure if in America it is calle Yo Yoing or whether it has a different name?

    Can anyone help?

    E-Mail is [email protected]

    Thanks

    Dont know about that one, i think the Americans just say weight fluctuation. but you can start a new trend

    They call it yoyoing aswell, though the 'posher' call it cycling (as we do)

    Just noticed this post late last night.I asked my sister who lives in Texas about terminology and she confirms that yo-yoing is in common usage there.She had never heard of cycling but then neither have I and I am a classic yo-yo dieter in the UK - so that means nothing.
