Do any of you have a problem with overweight?I have had IBS for many years the D kind. With all that emptying out you would think that I would be seriously underweight but I am 50 lbs overweight. Much as I try, the weight does not come off. As you all know, most of us can not eat fresh fruit, salads, and most stuff that takes weight off. I do have an underactive thyroid for which I had surgery several years back and do take meds for it but that does not really explain the weight gain over the years. Most of my IBS problems seem to be related to foods that I am allergic to in addition to stress at times. I wonder if allergic reactions can cause weight gain (puffiness)? Just trying to find some excuse I guess. Doctors have no answer. I'm new to this site just having gotten on a few days ago and really am happy to have such a supportive group. You guys are great! Thanks.
