This bulletin focuses on potentially harmful methods for weight loss or weight maintenance, based on data from the 2008 Québec Population Health Survey. It first presents the extent of the use of these methods among people aged 15 and over. Then, this use is analyzed according to certain characteristics: sociodemographic (including sex), socioeconomic (including income), body weight (including weight status), and health and well-being (including perceived health status). The general conclusion provides some food for thought regarding the use of potentially harmful methods.
