shrinking stomach???
hi diet doc, this may sound really stupid, and yes i have checked to see if its been asked before....... but i have a problem, i think my stomach has shrunk? is this even possible? because i dont eat much at all, just fruit and dinner, really. as soon as i eat anything, even like an apple, i am actually really full and quiet bloated. Is this because my stomach has shrunk or am i being totally illogical and stupid?

Dear Reader
It could be that you have shrunk your stomach by eating so little, however, these symptoms could also be due to a whole range of health problems (ulcers, IBS), so please have a medical checkup. I would also like to suggest that eating regular meals is a healthier option than eating only one meal a day.
Take care
