This might be an odd question, but here goes:
Recently, I have gained about 10lbs. At first, I thought it might be eggs, as I had recently reintroduced them to my diet. A few weeks egg-free and no change.
My diet hasn't changed and I use fit day to track. I train often (I am a semi-professional athlete) and have been having digestive issues as well, but my main issue is this:
I seem to have chronic inflammation in my legs and lower back. The reason I don't think this is simply weight gain is that I am lean everywhere else. I am vascular in my lower legs and up my arms, I even have a coveted tummy vein.
Things I am going to try are limiting my bacon and coffee (as I heard they can be inflammatory) but has anyone else had anything similar, if so, what did you do? I am not opposed to natural remedies (curcumin etc).

I was going to suggest curcumin/tumeric. Also, try swapping coffee for green tea and def drop the bacon- high in O-6 and who knows what else dependin the kind you're buying. Eat some monounsaturates like avocado, almonds, etc. Those are good for almost everything!
