Very Fat Stomach
I have belly fat around my tummy and very fat thighs while my upper body is extremely thin..How to reduce fat from lower body?
Belly Bulge: Usually the lower belly bulges because below the belly button, there is less internal support for the abdominal wall. This makes the internal organ bulge slightly and is often more pronounced following pregnancy. It can be corrected with tightening of the fascia during abdominoplasty surgery. Weight loss can help as well as exercises such as crunches and leg lifts. ...Read more

Others might as well. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Stomach grumbling and feels hungry constantly. Also very bloated. Is this gas/constipation or ulcer?
Hard to say: Ulcers usually hurt, but not always. Bloating is unusual. You can try an OTC acid blocker for a few days and if it doesn't get better, be seen. Make sure you're not drinking alcohol, coffee, acidic stuff like soda, and eat bland foods that do not make you feel worse. Good luck! ...Read more

If you are symptomatic than recommend eating smaller amounts more often. Recommend increasing fiber in diet, increasing fluid intake & being more physically active. Without knowing what the condition is - don't know if scarring is a possibility. If ...Read more
Low fat foods : Low fat foods may help but not if they contain additional sugar.

Exercise plus good nutrition is important, particularly focus on a plant based diet like the mediterranean diet. Best wishes. ...Read more
Yes: Normally eating fewer calories than you burn is really what is needed most of all. I would recommend also cutting back on simple carbohydrates like white sugar and flour. Also decreasing alcohol intake helps. Make sure to exercise regularly as well. A good rule of thumb is 300 calories 5 x a day max. Also make sure you are in good health first before starting with your dr as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
