We should be encouraging people to take more exercise and improve their
diet rather than spending as much as we do on bariatric surgery to tackle
obesity and cut diabetes risk, MPs have recommended. The Health Select
Committee also called in its latest report for more emphasis on the
benefits to health of physical activity in itself, rather than viewing it
simply as a means of controlling weight. The Committee said it was
inexplicable and unacceptable for the NHS to now be spending more money on
bariatric surgery than is spent on intensive lifestyle intervention
programmes that were long ago proven to cut rates of diabetes and obesity.

.

The Inquiry into the impact of physical activity and diet on health heard
that although diet, obesity and physical activity all have important
impacts on health, there has been for too long a view that the only
benefit of physical activity is in terms of tackling obesity. The report
concluded: A core message from this inquiry is the compelling evidence
that physical activity in its own right has huge health benefits totally
independent of a persons weight. The importance of this regardless of
weight, age, gender or other factors needs to be clearly communicated.

.

MPs insisted that interventions focused on encouraging individuals to
change their behaviour with regard to diet and physical activity must be
underpinned by broader, population-level measures because, although both
are important, the advantage of population-level interventions is that
they have an impact on far greater numbers than could ever benefit from
individual interventions.
