unintended weightloss
Dear Dietdoc,
I m suffering from bad digestion and I'm severe underweight. When I start to take betaine HCl with meals my digestion greatly improves (as do many other symptons like improved nails, less inflammatory skindisease etc.) but I start to loose more weight. Everything that helps my digestion (lemon juice, chili peppers) seem to burn fat and make me loose weight. How can I take betaine HCl without loosing weight? Is it because I eat too little protein?
Thanks a lot, I'm desperate,
Lisa
