BACKGROUND Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) results in sustained weight loss and amelioration of comorbid conditions in patients with clinically severe obesity. The mechanism of weight loss after RYGB is not well defined. The objective of this study was to document the changes in measured resting energy expenditure (MREE) over time in patients with clinically severe obesity after RYGB. METHODS We prospectively studied MREE in 70 patients (11 male, 59 female; body mass index [BMI], 40 to 80 kg… CONTINUE READING
