Bulging mid section
Wed, 06-05-2013 - 11:07am

I have posted this on another board but thought I would try here too to see if anyone has ideas. No matter what I do these days, my waistline seems to be expanding. I haven't really gained any weight yet all my weight seems to be redistributing in my mid section. What can I do?

Hmmm, no one has responded so apparently they don't know the answer either.  I have the same problem and can partially blame it on abdominal surgeries in the past couple years.  I think age has something to do with it.  Your weight seems to shift as you age.  I have also heard that calories from carbs tend to settle in the mid section.  Try cutting back on starchy carbs and increase your vegetable consumption.  

Good luck!
