Terrain answer:

The first thing I would look at is how many calories you are consuming per day. Cronometer is a great way to track your calories to see if you are within a good general range. Can you give us an idea of what you are eating on an average day?


Another thing to look at, is are you eating any irritants which might be causing your digestive tract to stay in a malabsorbed state. Some things which might be causing that irritation are hot peppers, spices, onions, garlic, ginger, herbs, etc.
