Im guessing this is a symptom of smething, whether its CFS/Fibro, Candida, Lyme, PMS....I dont know. I am a fairly thin girl....not even very cury....yet i have this gut. Now..dont get me wrong..i eat alot of fat cuz i feel hypoglycemic without it...but..its more of a bloating and burning feeling in my stomach. It does get worse during PMS..but is always an issue regardless. This may also be from chronic elevated cortisol but what can i do to reduce the cortisol! I feel like an ethiopian! I dont mean that to be offending to ethiopians..but thats how i look.
