Weight Loss Makes My Belly Look Bigger

Recommended Posts

I've been on a diet recently to lose a few pounds, and I've done OK so far. I've lost some fat everywhere, and now it seems like my belly looks really big in comparison. It's still the "problem area" on my body, even though it's not all from extra fat.

I'm currently gluten, dairy, and soy free. I eat somewhat Paleo style- I have a serving of black beans or sweet potatoes first thing in the morning, and maybe one serving of fruit in a day. After that, I'm pretty much only eating meat and cooked vegetables. I don't eat much in terms of calories, but those vegetables are huge! Why is it that I look pregnant after a big meal, but I can never tell when anyone else has eaten a big meal? I really have no idea if I just digest REALLY slow, or if I'm intolerant to something else. I cook almost everything myself, so I don't think there's any hidden gluten.

I haven't really kept up with all the other things that people have problems with on this forum. I know that certain fruits and vegies can be an issue.


Gluten free since Feb 2006, Dairy and Soy free since 2009

Anemic off and on since 2003
