Hi and thank you for asking!
You are reporting that when you reach a certain weight you get diarrhea.
Usually there is no relations between weight and diarrhea. This is why to my opinion it is an coincidence.
Otherwise to give a proper opinion I need to know more of your medical reports like:
- how does it long diarrhea?
- Is it associated with blood,mucous ?
- Is your diarrhea associated with a certain food?
Hope it was helpful to you.

Hi back,
You are reporting to have these symptoms especially diarrhea after a heavy meal.
It is caused probably by large amount of sugar and fatty on a large amount of meal.
It is called osmotic diarrhea. In such cases the meal can't be absorbed totally by the gut , so it pass away as diarrhea.
If you want to increase weight you need to eat often and not large amount of meal.
Hope it was helpful to you.
