For the past few weeks I have been struggling with my appetite. I’m barely able to get 1,000 calories into me each day (I’m male, 33, 5’7″, 155lbs), and even when I do it feels like I’m eating non-stop.
During the same time, I have been experiencing gas, bloating, and digestion issues. I need to find a way to stabalize my weight and regain my appetite so I’m getting enough into me each day.
Has anyone else had this problem?

I had loss of appetite before the treatment and much more when I started it. It could have been a die-off, but I was also recently diagnosed with hiatus hernia and erosion caused by acid and food being pushed back up. Lemon water was probably not helping either. All of this could have been causing my nausea and discomfort.
Not sure what to tell you. When this hits me, I fast for half day to a day and just drink broth (home made out of: chicken legs – they have more fat, and veggies such as kale, cabbage, potato – you don’t eat it, carrot – also you don’t eat it, onion, garlic, zucchini etc.) and by the next day I get better and restore some of the appetite. I noticed too much fiber gets me so I reduce it for a while, eat more of the cooked veggies instead of raw and by day three I can eat normal again… until it gets me once again.

I have lost my appetite for a few months now, but they have changed for different reasons.
Before I knew I suffered from Candida, whatever I ate bothered me. So I still ate stuff that was “feeding” the Candida and actually making it worse. I would get heartburn and feel nauseated all the time after eating.
Now that I’ve been on the candida diet for two months, my symptoms have changed. I’m still bloated (partially from leaky gut) so that “fullness” feeling is sometimes still there which also makes me lose my appetite.
I think in due time, it will get better. Your gut has to heal before it can take on heavier foods. I know how frustrating it is because I used to be able to eat ANYTHING i wanted, and sometimes still be hungry! Also, I’m sure my stomach has “shrunk” because I have been eating so minimally. Instead of 3 meals a day, I break them apart in 6. Maybe try that. Don’t pressure yourself to eat a whole chicken breast if it makes you uncomfortable.
Also, look into the anti-inflammatory diet once you’ve done the candida diet for a while. I am transitioning into that diet right now. I found a link I’m sure there are some more informative ones Anti-Inflammatory Diet
