abstract

  • Patients present for bariatric surgery with a wide range of PA levels, with almost one half categorized as somewhat active or active. Body mass index was inversely related to the total amount and intensity of PA. Few patients reported a regular preoperative exercise regimen, suggesting most PA is accumulated from activities of daily living. Patients' report of daily minutes of walking or exercise might not be a reliable indication of their PA level.
