A week ago we had watched a documentary about stress," Stress Portrait of a Killer" it says stress can result to an ulcer, it also affects the way our body function that can lead to a heart attack. Stress also change the way we deposit fats in our body, and those fats were dangerous. So stress can really make our tummy bigger?

I do believe so, even if it is only from stress eatting; that will definitely expand your girth. Stress is a very unpredictable malady.

maybe the way that stress can make our tummy bigger is sometimes when we are stress we ate a lot and just sleep or rest.

I am confused why stress can make your tummy bigger. I don't believe on that statement. Maybe your tummy gets big if you eat too much everytime you are stress.

I don't know that. Thanks for sharing the information with me. I am working hard on my tummy size now. I do exercise every morning and evening now. I feel there is a small change due to my exercise. I am also walking a lot. I have told my driver not to come in the evening to pick me up. I am walking around 20 minutes on the way home.

Hi, they says doing sit-up would help to make tummy smaller. Try also not to eat too much carbohydrates, like rice. Carbihydrate is one of the factor to make tummy bigger.

I think it would be one of the factors that contribute to big tummy. A lot of other factors also make your tummy bigger, say lack of sports, drinking, eating too much...

I have heard that stress can aggravate the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome which in some people can cause the tummy to feel bloated. My doctor told me that IBS is definitely more serious when the patient is under stress. Of course emotional eating can make any of us gain weight and the tummy is the first place fat will deposit itself.
