I'm guessing this is some kind of mechanism to stabilize weight?
Should I still eat then even if I'm not hungry? Also, my stomach seems to be permanently distended. What's happening?

Don't eat if you aren't hungry, but be sure to stay hydrated and salt food to taste.
Make sure you are dialing in your micronutrients: Vitamin D and magnesium may require supplementation. Eat nutrient-dense foods like liver, eggs, red meat, dark leafy greens and seafood to make sure you get enough via diet. Hard cheese & butter, if you eat dairy.
Google FODMAPS. They may be the cause of your bloating.

Experiencing the same thing!
I'm 5'5 was 114lbs now over 2 weeks I'm at 125lbs. I haven't changed my eating habits (except for a little ice cream binge on my birthday), but I can't fit into my jeans!! I've upped my water intake and began working out more in the past week, but nothing is changing.
When I do eat my stomach rumbles and sometimes I have discomfort. For someone who loves to eat, this situation is a little discouraging. I would love some answers... and to not wear stretchy pants 24/7.

fructose. if you havnt done so already try cutting fruit and keep things like tomatoes and peppers to a minimum. distended stomach in my experience tends to indicate fermentation. yes, leafy greens are healthy but if we hadmeant to eat tyem raw in huge quantaties we would have been born with more stomachs :D sorry i need to get out more.
