The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is pleased to announce the publication of the 2017  Nutrition Care in Bariatric Surgery Systematic Review on the Evidence Analysis Library© (EAL©).

The Bariatric Surgery systematic review is an update to the review published in 2009. For the 2017 review, the expert workgroup focused on four subtopic areas:

  • Post-Operative Medical Nutrition Therapy
  • Post-Operative Energy Needs
  • Post-Operative Energy Intake
  • Post-Operative Macronutrient Intake

Key Findings include

  • Undergoing bariatric surgery resulted in a clinically meaningful and statistically significant decrease in resting metabolic rate (RMR), as high as 26% at one year post-surgery, which was sustained at two years.
  • There was a clinically meaningful and statistically significant reduction in post-operative self-reported energy intake, which was as high as 72% in the first six months after surgery but only 28% to 38% at four and five years post-surgery.
  • No statistically significant relationship was found between post-operative macronutrient distribution and post-operative weight loss.
  • Patients receiving medical nutrition therapy (MNT) from a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) for two to six visits during the first year post-surgery had a significant excess weight loss ranging from 60% to 80% and significant reduction in body mass index (BMI) ranging from 5% to 31% at 12 months. However, research is limited regarding the effect of post-operative MNT on behavior change.

The EAL® is a synthesis of the best, most relevant nutrition research on important dietetic practice questions. Nearly 40 systematic reviews and 18 evidence-based guidelines are housed within an accessible, online, user?friendly website.

Over the past few months, there has been keen interest on the link between diabetes and the consumption of refined carbohydrates such as white rice. This has generated discussions and debate among members of the public and health professionals. Some have shared their views about the comparison between rice and sugary drinks, and the basis for focusing on rice, given that our Asian ancestors have been eating rice for centuries with no apparent ill effect.

This has provided us an opportunity to communicate to the public on the benefits of whole grains consumption and the wider importance of diet quality, especially, carbohydrate quality, as part of strategy to reduce diabetes risk.  It is also timely that we share with our colleagues in the scientific and clinical community, Health Promotion Board’s (HPB) and Singapore Nutrition & Dietetics Association’s thinking underlying the reasons for adopting a carbohydrate strategy as part of primary prevention in Singapore’s War on Diabetes.

Please see our "Publications" link for the whole statement.
