Resting metabolism slows by 11 calories per day for every 2.2 pounds that is lost from weight loss surgery according to a 2009 paper by Eric Doucet and A. Schwartz from the University of Ottawa in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
This was less than the decrease of 15 calories per day seen with weight loss from a low-calorie diet.
This was based on a review of 90 studies involving a total of 2996 people.
