I've had this problem for quite a while now. Its like no matter what i eat, or how much i eat, my lower abdomen sticks out quite like i'm 3 months pregnant or so. My BF is pretty low, its just the abdomen that sticks out and its kinda hard (below the belly button) . Any1 else has such problems? please help

I've have that as well, however I have had it my entire life. Its called having a distended stomach (for those who have it due to natural and non-dietary reasons). Ive been looking for ways to try and flatten it out to little success. Ive been doing stomach vaccums, but havent seen much results yet.

I get the feeling that that's basically quite normal and partially genetics, some guts stick out a bit more, some a bit less. Except when you come down to like 4-6% levels, then it's probably flat most of the time without flexing.

Could also be gluten intolerant. Try eating just veggies, fruit, eggs, fish, and meat, and nothing else for a week. Eat NO grains, breads, pasta, dairy, etc. Some people need to stop eating beans, also. See if it eases. If it does, you may have your answer. You will be healthier on this eating plan, also.

But there's no anatomical inborn justification for a distended stomach. In fact abdominal distension is always a symptoms of a condition not a genetical anatomical feature.

only time when i get lower stomach sticking out is ive been drinking too much water at a time. Usually after 1 hour+, i have to pee and then tat part of stomach gets back to normal
but my body is prolly saying it cant handle tat much water a time but i just started drinking proper amount of water so maybe gotta get used to it

I find this happens after I eat carbs, and not having enough fibre in the diet. Try eating more fibrous vegetables and use psyllium husks in your breakfast or oats and drink plenty of water.Angie....

POINTS TO REMEMBER - If you can't kill it, grow it, or pick it, you probably shouldn't be eating it!!!
