Background Intragastric balloon (IGB) insertion leads to dietary restriction; however, its neurohormonal actions were also described. Resting metabolic rate (RMR) adjusted for body mass (RMR/mass) seems to increase after bariatric interventions, whereas it generally decreases after caloric restriction–based therapies. However, no studies have evaluated the changes in body composition and RMR over IGB treatment. Objective To evaluate the relationships between changes in body composition, RMR, RMR/mass, and RMR adjusted …
