Hello Ibrahim,
It seems like you lack some digestive enzymes. You can try some liver tonic and keep an habit of drinking plenty of water everyday at least 3-4 liter per day. Do not try to have heavy food once in a blue moon. You must train your body by gradually increasing your diet. your ideal weight as per your height is 70.5-72.7kg. Never try to achieve this quickly. This has to be slow and steady process. Keep exercising and avoid any aerobics. Go for moderate weight bearing training. take protein diet from natural source and have plenty of water.

Wish you a good health soon.
