Abstract

Background: Bariatric surgery candidates' physical activity (PA) level might contribute to the variability of weight loss and body composition changes following bariatric surgery. However, there is little research describing the PA of patients undergoing bariatric surgery to inform PA recommendations in preparation for, and following, surgery. We describe the PA assessment in the Longitudinal Assessment of Bariatric Surgery-2 study at 6 sites in the United States and report preoperative PA level. We also examined the relationships between objectively determined PA level and the patient's body mass index and self-reported purposeful exercise. Methods: The participants wore an accelerometer and completed a PA diary. Standardized measures of height and weight were obtained. Results: Of the 757 participants, 20% were sedentary (
