Re: Diagnosed: Fructose Malabsorption; some questions, including weight loss issues

Rapid weight loss is unlikely to be related to FM unless you removed a lot of foods containing lots of sugars and didn't replace those calories with other foods.

Did the weight loss begin before or after you were diagnosed with fructose malabsorption? However, since your weight loss seems to only occur when you are travelling but you gain weight when you are at home eating safely it doesn't sound like FM is the culprit. Since you track calories can you tell us how your caloric intake changes when you travel? You say don't think you should have lost as much weight as you have. Does this mean you were expecting to loss some weight when travelling? Have you talk to your GP about this weight loss?






Sorry for the late reply guys, but I was actually traveling for almost the entire last month. In reply to the question on weight loss, I have always had to work to put weight on and have always been skinny. In the last two years, this issue has become worse. Even with making concentrated efforts to at least maintain my weight, I ended up reaching a low weight of 150, which I haven't seen in over 10 years (I am a 30 year old, 6'2 male).

I track my calories daily, and have kept very detailed records. After reaching an all time low of 150 pounds, I was able to get myself back up to 170 with a lot of hard work and very focused eating on foods I felt were good for IBS/fructose malabsorption. Most of the calories came from items such as chicken, rice, white tortillas, french bread, potatoes, fish/seafood, chocolate soy milk, orange juice, baked ruffles, and guacamole/hummus. During this time, I also felt much better. Not anywhere near perfect, but much improved over the past two years, and I believe the dietary changes played a role.

Based on my calculations, and my experience over the years, I believe I need around 2,400 calories or so daily to maintain my weight. My Basal Metabolic Rate is 1900, and I throw a bit of a buffer in there for basic walking, etc. I maintain a desk job, and outside of exercising, my daily work lifestyle is not very active.

Since I just took a vacation, I wanted to make another post with how I did weight-wise and see if anyone cared to comment on anything. This post is already getting a little long, so I'll create another one with how I did on my most recent trip.

Thanks a lot
