I cannot get rid of this. I eat eggs in the morning, chicken afternoon and regular dinners. I dont' get this. I have the typical ectomorph body type of being thinner and a smaller bone structure, yet, I have this stupid bloated stomach that doesn't seem to go away regardless of what I eat. I'm staying away from dairy as much as possible thinking about would help.
Anyone have any suggestions?

I assume you've tried the fiber + digestive bacteria supplement route? could always give that a shot too.

what does that entail? Is that a sort of cleansing treatment?

I have the same problem. Bump for answers.

Make sure you are drinking enough water, def try some fiber + acidophilus. Take some lactase if you eat a lot of dairy products. Taking shots of all natural apple cider vinegar with "the mother" (you can get a bottle cheap at any local supp store) can help with digestion too. Its been used for something like the past 2 thousand years for health benefits. Anything with digestive enzymes would be great. Probably the best single supplement I can think of would be Gut Health by RPN. Its on NutraPlanet right now for like 12 bucks. Def check it out, a lot of good reviews from other people with bloating problems.

I have the same problem as well. I was thinking though at my height and thin build I have to keep working my chest, back and shoulders to compensate. When I started working out i weighed 160 with skinny arm and NO chest.

Try Gut Health by RPN you can get it at NutraPlanet. Its an excellent bacteria replacement for the intestines.

i think if you drink water at 120 oz. a day spread out EVENLY over the day, you'll be okay if not, try a digestive enzyme

Update: The Past week or so I have removed milk from my diet, and just use soy milk. The bloating has really gone down. I think the sugar found in dairy, lactose is the devil. Just something to think about fellas. Milk is for babies...well u know the rest

I don't handle lots of sodium well. Maybe that could be it.

This may or may not be helpful, but you could try something that is known to help improve visceral fat. Something like a cortasol blocker or Sesamin extract may be helpful.

eliminate dairy, take digestive enzymes and drink a lot of water.

Now are you talking bloated as in gassy or bloated as in its round and sticks out further than the rest of you, like a beer gut almost?
01-22-2009, 06:16 PM
Llike sticks out futher than the rest of me. I'm cut everywhere else except my stomach. I constantly have to suck it in.

Kinda. Just bloated. Fat? I'm not sure
01-22-2009, 07:19 PM
Well if its not bloated as in gassy I'm not sure any enzymes would do much.

I wonder if some people just have genes with either having a round stomach and others with a flat. I need to post some pctures. I'll do that

Make sure to eat high bacteria yogurt daily and if you are not going to bathroom regularly add mirilax. I wouldnt add a bunch of over priced digestive supps. If you dont think you are getting enought fiber add medimucil or other fiber drink and yogurt.

Stomach vaccum exercises are excellent for a protruding gut

Like suggested above, Gut Health by RPN is a great choice here. If you cannot afford it (even though a small bottle is only like $12), then you can go with NOW's Acidophilus.

Water, yogurt, and the vaccum exercise are all good. I would also take inventory of the types of carbs you eat. The starch in brown rice, when broken down in the digestive system, does not cause gas and is high in fiber. I removed all starches from my diet a few years ago and ate brown rice only and it did wonders for me. I gradually started adding more carbs back in and noticed some cause more bloating and gas.
Good luck, I hope you gut goes away.
