Can anybody point me toward statistics or studies regarding recidivism in weight loss? Specifically I’m looking for a comparison of numbers between the diet, diet and exercise, and bariatric surgery patients.
I’d really like to see some studies that go 10 or 20 years from the initial loss.
I’m considering bariatric surgery, and would like to see what the likelihood of success is 20 years from now.
I’ve tried searching online, but really need some help in narrowing the field. There appears to be a whole lot of conflicting data, and a lot of it is too anecdotal to take seriously.
