We can grow an aversion to eating (subconscious even) during flares, as pooping is so frequent, awful, and painful. Therefore the less you eat the less you poop out. As such we don't want to eat, loose appetite, only pick at food rather than inhale it. I'd wager that's what's going on, if I was a betting man.
