A common misconception of gastric bypass surgery is that it works by malabsorption of food calories. In fact, only 5-10% of the weight loss from gastric bypass surgery is the result of malabsorption. However, the surgery does effectively reduce appetite and intake by 1,418 calories per day. It is recommended that most dieters use safer, non-surgical methods of appetite control while controlling their weight.
