I am a 40-year-old woman who a year ago weighed 83 kilos. Since then, I have lost 15 kilos with exercise and a changed, more nutritious diet. I feel great. But I notice that since losing the excess weight, I feel less hungry than I used to, and if I eat a heavy meal, I feel stomach pains for an hour or so as if I underwent stomachrestricting surgery. Is this a normal thing that happens after losing a significant amount of weight? – B.P., Ra’anana
