The surgical treatment of clinically severe obesity is becoming more popular. To date, little has been published concerning the mechanisms by which each of the commonly employed bariatric surgical procedures induces weight loss. This article reviews the physiology of weight loss induced by semistarvation and other proposed mechanisms of surgically induced weight loss.
