Thanks for your responses, everybody!
I have indeed been concerned about a Vitamin D issue, though I've drank a bit more whole milk on PB!
I hadn't considered that the switch to PB could flush potassium! Do you reckon that potassium would eventually build up to healthy levels again, without supplementation? (And that supplementing would accelerate the process?)

At any rate, I'll supplement Vitamin D, probably potassium and magnesium, and try to increase calories (via fat I presume?). And I'll keep you posted on the results!
(UPDATE 3 MONTHS LATER)
I didn't do it very scientifically; who knows what helped? But, these things maybe did:
*Vitamin D, 5000IU/day (now dialled back to 1000)
*Magnesium 450mg/day (at bed)
*Kept safe-starch carbs up. Maybe because I'm 5'11" and 164lbs, not a lot of fat to lose, I was STRUGGLING with the 50-80g/day zone. Now I'm hitting all kinds of white rice, sweet potatoes, 1 fruit/day, plantains, etc.
I hope this helps some other poor soul.
