A new study finds that young healthy women who lose weight aren t likely improving their fitness.

Key Points
  • A new study finds that young, healthy women who lose weight aren’t likely improving their fitness.
  • Women who have a moderate weight may increase their risk for health conditions if they try to lose weight.
  • Being underweight can increase the risk of osteoporosis, fatigue, and extended recovery times.
New research finds reducing calorie intake may do more harm than good for younger women already at a moderate weight who are exercising to improve fitness.

“There is a common preoccupation among athletes in endurance sports that weight loss might improve their competitive performance; however, data on the topic has been mixed, based on small numbers and focused on men,” said Dr. J. Sawalla Guseh, co-senior study author, in a statement.

The study will be presented this week at the American Heart Association’s virtual Basic Cardiovascular Sciences 2020 Scientific Sessions, a global exchange of the most recent advances in basic cardiovascular science.

“I tend to agree with this,” Wendy Shafranski, owner and coach at Vero Strength + Conditioning in Vero Beach, Florida, and co-founder of Structure Training Systems, told Healthline.

“If someone is a healthy weight and performing well, then I would stick to what they are doing. Each individual is different, and aesthetics don’t always correlate with performance,” she said.
