One theory is that when the inflammation in the intestine goes down, diarrhea lessens, the macerated food travels through the intestine at a more normal rate, and one can absorb more of the by products from the food. Nutrients, fat, carbs, etc might be able to be more utilized.
You perhaps feel hungry because your body can actually handle the food better. Were you underweight when you began Humira? Perhaps your body is trying to catch up. I did not lose or gain weight in the short time I was on Humira. I did lose over 45 pounds when on Remicade. Of course, I am one of those weird types that lost weight on prednisone. Go figure...
