Bottom Line: Percentage weight loss (%WL) outcomes were compared with a historical matched control group.The intervention group exhibited greater %WL in the 3-12-month postsurgery period compared to historical controls, 12.2 ± 7.5% versus 5.1 ± 5.4%, respectively (p = 0.027).Lifestyle intervention program following bariatric surgery is feasible and resulted in several beneficial outcomes.

ABSTRACT

Background: Lifestyle intervention programs after bariatric surgery have been suggested to maximise health outcomes. This pilot study aimed to investigate the feasibility and impact of an 8-week combined supervised exercise with nutritional-behavioral intervention following Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy.

Methods: Eight female patients (44 ± 8 years old, BMI = 38.5 ± 7.2 kg m(-2)) completed the program. Before and after intervention, anthropometric measures, six-minute walk test (6MWT), physical activity level, eating behavior, and quality of life (QoL) were assessed. Percentage weight loss (%WL) outcomes were compared with a historical matched control group.

Results: The program significantly improved functional capacity (mean increment in 6MWT was 127 ± 107 meters, p = 0.043), increased strenuous intensity exercise (44 ± 49 min/week, p = 0.043), increased consumption of fruits and vegetables (p = 0.034), reduced consumption of ready meals (p = 0.034), and improved "Change in Health" in QoL domain (p = 0.039). The intervention group exhibited greater %WL in the 3-12-month postsurgery period compared to historical controls, 12.2 ± 7.5% versus 5.1 ± 5.4%, respectively (p = 0.027).

Conclusions: Lifestyle intervention program following bariatric surgery is feasible and resulted in several beneficial outcomes. A large randomised control trial is now warranted.

Mentions: Percentage weight loss (%WL) data were calculated using the following formula: %WL = [(weight on day of surgery − weight at time-point after surgery)/weight on day of surgery] × 100. Initially, patients with poor weight loss response, defined by weight loss of less than 15% at 3-month follow-up, were identified and invited by telephone to participate but subsequently patients with greater weight loss were invited. Ten patients agreed to participate; the remaining ten were unable to participate due to work or childcare commitments. However, 2 patients were unable to complete the intervention due to time commitment and therefore only 8 patients were included in the analysis (Figure 1).
