Digestive issues that could be hurting your weight loss efforts

If your digestive tract is having trouble, problems with weight loss could easily ensue.

“Gastrointestinal and digestive issues can definitely have a large effect on the way we eat and how our bodies absorb and digest foods, causing us to gain or lose weight,” says Kenneth Brown, M.D., a board-certified gastroenterologist. “Most digestive problems tend to cause weight loss from poor absorption of food, but there are a few situations in which our intestinal health can contribute to weight gain.”

Review several digestive problems that could be interfering with Phentermine 37.5mg weight loss efforts:

Acid Reflux Disease

“Eating provides temporary relief because both the food you’re eating, and the saliva from actually chewing that food, neutralizes acid,” explains Brown. However, symptoms such as bloating and nausea return once the food is digested. Rather than continuing to eat because you want the pain to go away, discuss a healthy solution to your issue with your healthcare provider.


While constipation may make you feel “heavy,” it does not promote weight gain by itself. What it does do is make you feel sluggish, tired…and less likely to work out. Help yourself end constipation for good by drinking plenty of water and enjoying a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Red meat and white flour only stop you up more.


Ulcers cause many of the same symptoms as acid reflux disease, and frequently results in overeating. Again, speaking with your healthcare professional is strongly recommended to get your ulcers under control and sidestep the vicious pain/overeating cycle.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

The bloat and chronic inflammation associated with IBS is another path to overeating and weight gain. Going gluten-free or consuming more digestive enzymes is key in overcoming this health issue.
