According to healthline, it's important to note that a big stomach may not necessarily indicate a health problem. However, if you are concerned about your stomach size or have other symptoms, there are many potential causes of a big stomach, including:
Overeating: Consuming too many calories and not burning them off can lead to a build-up of excess fat around the stomach area.
Poor diet: Eating a diet high in processed foods, refined sugars, and unhealthy fats can contribute to weight gain and belly fat.
Lack of exercise: Physical activity helps burn calories and can help reduce belly fat.
Hormonal changes: Hormonal imbalances, such as those that occur during menopause, can lead to an increase in belly fat.
Stress: Elevated levels of the stress hormone cortisol can lead to an accumulation of belly fat.
Genetics: Some people may be genetically predisposed to store more fat in the abdominal area.
Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as Cushing's syndrome or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), can lead to abdominal weight gain.
Alcohol consumption: Drinking too much alcohol can contribute to weight gain and an increase in belly fat.
