Bariatric surgery is highly recommended treatment for patients with severe obesity (i.e. BMI>40 kg/m2 or BMI>35 kg/m2 with at least one obesity related comorbid somatic condition). Engagement in health promoting behaviors, including regular exercise and healthy eating behaviors are related to maintenance of weight loss and physical and mental wellbeing after surgery. Adherence to these treatment guidelines in regard to physical exercise and eating habits varies among patients after bariatric surgery. Psychological factors are found to influence psychosocial outcome, weight loss and adherence to treatment guidelines in patients that have undergone bariatric surgery
Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature.
Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method.
Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
