Even when at ideal weight, pot belly remains. Something besides fat?
Patient : From since I can remember, I've had a pot belly, even though I wasn't (and still aren't) an overweight kid. I started sucking in my stomach around 16 because I was embarrassed, and now it's second nature for me to keep it sucked in. I'm now 20 and 6'2", and even at a healthy 185 lbs I have this belly. I'm just wondering if this could be something else besides fat, because I exercise for an hour at least 4-5 days a week.
