i stopped taking probiotic (bifidus ) after i had asthma and high blood pressure and lost 15 lbs. Since then, i started losing 0.5 lbs - 1 lbs on daily basis even after eating huge meals. In 3 months i lost 30 lbs. Doctor told me i have severe pancreatic difficiency. Digestive enzyme caused irritation and never used it. i belive that longterm use of acciphex might have cause low stomach acid, pancreatic difficiency which promotes bacterial overgrowth in small intestine which got much worst when i took probiotic causing sever malabsorption problem and weight loss. This is what helped me gain some weight after 3 months.
I divided my 2 regular meals (lunch and dinner) into 12 meals. I eat 12 bowls of gravy(for easy digestion) after every one hour but that does not mean i eat 12 lunch. I eat what a normal person will eat in one day but i will just make 12 meals out of it by making it gravy(adding lot of water). I soak 1 cup of rice and 2 cups of mansoor dal ( bean family ) in water night before cooking. Then i will add some brocolli , turmeric powder and lots of water and make gravy out of it (gravy like mashed potato)in pressure cooker. The point is, the six bowl of gravy will contain same amount of nutrients in one normal lunch but just more water. And i eat one promogranate everyday which is best fruit i ever known. good luck.
