A new, large study from the University of Helsinki, analyzing young men and women who succeeded in managing their weight over ten years, found that trying to prevent weight gain by dieting and skipping meals actually accelerated getting fatter. The study found that eating regular and sufficient meals, refraining from dieting, and finding a more general sense of meaning in life were the key to long-term successful weight management.
