I have the same problem. My doctor says that it is because with my diarrhea, my body is not digesting any real calories, so it will continue to feel hungry until it feels nourished. Also, when I do eat, I have a bowel movement right away, and so much output that my food went right through me. It is like my food is there to push food instead of doing other things. I also been struggling with poor appetite on some days, but even without an appetite, my brain always wants food. So, that is probably what is happening. I still ironically could digest some nutrients, but nutrients do not have any calories, its the carbs and the fats that do, and the body also wants those too. Even though, people think it is great that I could do this and still be 97 lbs., but it is bad when I feel tired and sick all of the time. I even tried many powders and medications, but due to my total colectomy unusual side effect, I am unable to digest these things, and they do not work. I am going to see another G.I. this Friday. Well, good luck with everything.
