    Bloated lower abdomen

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

    Water bloating, lots of carbs, creatine bloat - all possible reasons.
    I get that, but then I go take a big crunch or a long piss.

    I find that mine bloats alot when I consume a abundance of artificial sweetner like if I drink too much diet pop. Try cutting down on that and see if that helps at all?

    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 too have struggled with this problem. I haven't found a solution but a good probiotic (I use Jarrow-Dophilus EPS), drinking plenty of water, and avoiding carbonated beverages, gum, etc. can help manage the bloat

    Same problem, not that pronounced on most days and especially earlier in the day (with less food in me) and I also have a very low BF; when I flex all of my 6 abdominals are very visible and rock hard to the touch, also when flexed my stomach is flat.

    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.

    The only reason to have a distented stomach if you rule out dietary reasons is lack of trasversus muscles and or lack of back muscles creating a bad gut sticking out posture.
    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.

    Ive read that can happen if you have bad posture too long while doing crunches, etc...or not breathing at the right times...

    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.

    Are you taking stimulants/caffeine? They can cause this over prolonged use.
