Compared to traditional weight loss strategies, the compensatory decrease in energy expenditure in response to body weight loss is markedly attenuated after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery (RYGB). Because basal and postprandial levels of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) are increased after RYGB surgery, and because GLP-1 has been shown to increase energy… CONTINUE READING
