Abstract

Introduction and Aims: Progression from healthy weight to overweight or obesity is associated with numerous health problems in young adult women. The aims were to track BMI over 16 years in women who had a healthy BMI in 1996 (when they were 18-23), to calculate rates of weight change associated with maintenance and/or change in BMI, and to examine the determinants of these changes.
