Please help...Need Answers

I am trying to find a web site I can go to that will explain to me why PPIs cause weight gain. The scientific reason. Or is itas simple as we eat more because we "feel so much better". I don't know that I buy that answer

Is there a way to not gain weight on them...something else I can take to reverse the side effect.

I am doing weight watchers religiously and exercising....and scared to dealth that I will put weight stomach feels bloated....ahhhhhh....

I just want the truth and for an expert to explain the reason to me.

My Dr./Pharmacy says it's because people eat more because they feel better....this is so frustrating!

I've gained 18 pounds, it's because you feel better and all that time watching what you eat is now behind you and you eat, and you eat and you eat.
