Abstract and Keywords

Bariatric surgery is the most effective treatment for severe obesity and its weight-related comorbidities. As the use of bariatric surgery has increased, concerns have arisen about problematic eating behaviors (EBs) and eating disorders (EDs) in this population. This chapter describes the current literature detailing EDs and problematic EBs and weight control practices (WCPs) in the post-bariatric-surgery population. It begins with a description of EDs in this population. Next, it describes problematic EBs, followed by a review of postoperative gastrointestinal problems that influence EBs. Third, it reviews the WCPs that can evolve. Finally, it describes models of “food addiction” as they apply to eating-related pathology in the post-bariatric-surgery population.
