I believe the large BMs is whats keeping all my weight off as I evacuate twice as much as a normal person should in one sitting and even though it's mostly formed stool if it leaves your body too early it is not allowing the nutrients to be absorbed properly. It sounds like we are about
70% of the way towards remission and need some more tweaking of meds etc. Curious, why are you off all meds if you're still flarring?
I too have large amounts of movement most days - formed and then soft, but not D. It does amaze me in that I have lost my appetite again so there is very little food in me. For example, yesterday all I could handle was 1/2 of a turkey sandwitch and this a.m. I have gone 3 times so far - amazing.
