If you have been able to gain weight in the past, nutrient absorption may not be the issue. When working to gain muscle, you just need to be very careful about what you eat and how much. if you are gaining more than 2 lbs. a week, it probably is mostly fat. Also, you can add some interval training, which will help limit fat gain without cutting into muscle stores.

There are specific tests to see about ones nutrient absorption, aren't there? If one were to have a gluten problem would it be just the gluten not getting absorbed, or could one also have problems with other proteins or carbs too?

There are so many symptoms that often times it gets overlooked because it doesn't match the classic ones: weight loss, diarrhea, intestinal ones.

For me I had IBS (running to the potty many times a day, cramping), brain fog, fatigue, and terrible gas. It was amazing to me how cutting out dairy and wheat reduced my gas to almost nothing.


I had IBS for years too. It was mainly in the form of diarrhea and cramping. I learned to cut back the fats I ate, but later realized that a lot of my problem was mental or stress. I don't really struggle with the IBS anymore.
