Weight loss maintenance after lifestyle changes (diet and exercise) is challenging and unfortunately the success rate is low. This topic has received major attention and yet the explanation behind the apparent inability to maintain lifestyle changes remains unresolved. Combining increased physical activity and changes of the diet composition are typically first line of treatment to achieve weight loss, but gastric bypass surgery is also used for weight loss. Different drugs are on the market that induces a weight loss.
The presentation will focus on mitochondrial adaptations after a weight loss induces by lifestyle changes or after gastric bypass surgery. We have conducted two clinical trials investigating weight loss after a lifestyle intervention or after gastric bypass surgery, with a focus on mitochondrial function in skeletal muscle and adipose tissue. Furthermore focus will also be on the effect of different weight loss medications and how these affects mitochondrial function.
