    Weight loss surgery causes an average weight loss of 18 percent of body weight compared to 11 percent with diet and drugs, 7 percent with diet alone, 7 percent with diet plus group health care education, and 6 percent with a modified fast.

    This according to study analyzing six years of data from an obesity program at a hospital in Madrid, Spain.

    There was no significant difference in weight loss between patients given health care education individually compared to those educated as a group.

    However, they did note that two-thirds of patients dropped out before completing their treatments. Weight loss was greatest in those who were the most overweight—12 percent with grade IV obesity, 8 percent with grade III obesity, and 7 percent with grade II or I obesity.
