The vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) currently accounts for almost 60% of all bariatric surgeries in the US. Unfortunately, more than 50% of patients experience some degree of weight recidivism. The biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD-DS) is a highly malabsorptive procedure with better long-term weight loss. It isn ’t clear if patients have greater vitamin deficiencies.

Conclusions: Bariatric surgery appears to be capable of partially reversing the obesity-related epigenome. The identification of potential epigenetic biomarkers predictive for the success of bariatric surgery may open new doors to personalized therapy for severe obesity.

(CNN) — It might seem counterintuitive, but generally speaking, skinny people don’t have faster metabolisms than people who weigh more. In fact, the bigger your body, the more calories you burn. Basal (or resting) metabolism refers to the total number of calories all the cells in the body need to stay alive and functioning. “Your resting metabolic rate is typically described as the total number of calories your body needs while at rest. This is made up of basic functions like supporting your vital organs, muscle and fat tissue and the energy that is required to break down food we eat,” said Martin B...

Losing weight is no easy task, and myths persist about how to do it—which end up making it even harder. To cut through the confusion, here are nine common misconceptions about weight loss and dieting, and what the science actually says. Myth #1: It’s impossible to lose weight It’s tough—just ask anyone who’s tried. But it’s not impossible.

Today, more than 10,000 Americans are part of the registry—with an average weight loss of 66 pounds, kept...

A study that followed up on 14 contestants from the weight loss reality show “The Biggest Loser” confirms what some previous participants have been saying for years: The massive weight loss depicted on the show can be almost impossible to maintain perfectly, and in fact it is frighteningly easy to re-gain all the weight they lost -- and then some.  That's not surprising on its own. After all, contestants dedicate themselves wholly to weight loss for about seven months in an artificial environment that is impossible to maintain after the show ends. What's more, the public scrutiny, as well as the financial ...
