Challenging: It can be difficult to burn calories when you are recovering from knee surgery. You can probably get on a stationary bike after several weeks. Swim in a pool after several months. Walk for exercise after several months.

Diet and exercise: Losing weight after acl surgery is no different than losing weight any other time. Watch your calorie intake, eat healthy (lean proteins, lots of fruits and vegetables, avoid sugary and/or alcoholic drinks, avoid carbs), and of course exercise regularly and increase your overall activity level (i.e. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, park farther away, etc).
