- Recommendation ID
- Do post-operative lifestyle intervention programmes (exercise, behavioural or dietary) improve weight loss and weight-loss maintenance following bariatric surgery?
- Any explanatory notes
- Lifestyle interventions are targeted pre-operatively with formalised recommendations to prepare patients for surgery. In contrast, post-surgery there are no lifestyle intervention programmes to help patients adapt. Limited evidence suggests that exercise and behavioural input improve weight loss outcomes, but high quality research is needed to assess the impact of these interventions.
