Calories: It's calories that count,not necessarily when you eat them, that causes weight gain. New weight accumulates in the abdominal area most often. Thus a light evening snack may not be a problem if your daily calorie intake is not excessive. ...Read more

Can gallbladder dysfunction cause big stomach?

Possibly: If you mean bloated with gas that is a possibility. Sometimes gallbladder dysfunction can lead to difficulty digesting fats which may leave you gassy and bloated. In fact, increased flatulence and belching are secondary symptoms of gallbladder disease. If it persists please check with your doctor. ...Read more

Lung restriction: Obesity might be the cause. Bending over causes your abdomen to push upward against your diaphragms, restricting their movement when you attempt to take a breath. ...Read more

What causes frequent urination and a big stomach after eating a small meal accompained by pains?

See Doc timely...: Peeing often & a big stomach after a small meal may be independent. Why are you peeing often? See Doc to check if you have UTI or are able to empty bladder and hold the urine. For small meal + big stomach + pain, you need to make sure you didn't swallow much air or food indigestion. So, go to see Doc to check these things out. Best luck... ...Read more

Calories add up...: The extra bowl of cereal or other sweet item will easily add 300 calories. One can try drinking a cup of water the moment the urge to eat cereal comes, and then go right outside and walk around the block. That should help prevent ingesting those extra calories (especially sugar and carb calories). ...Read more
