One of the most popular questions people ask about weight loss surgery is, “will I have to work out to lose the weight?” It’s a very simple question with a more complicated answer. No, you don’t “have” to work out to lose the weight, but you certainly should. The great thing about bariatric surgery is that if you follow the system, you should lose weight relatively fast. It is an amazing tool that can help you jump start your weight loss journey. For many people, they don’t have to work out to lose the weight. For others, they have to add it in as well. It really depends on the person in terms of weight loss numbers.
