Shrinking the stomach

Posted Jun 13 2009 12:20am
From all the reports I read, the stomach is a pretty important piece of the diabetes type2 puzzle. So I have been thinking about it for a while. Seems like I am always worried about shrinking it. There are two ideas of stomach in my mind -
The External Stomach
This is actually the belly as seen from outside. A large belly does not mean the organ is big internally, but that you have a lot of fat around your waist. This definitely needs to go down. Need to exercise and consume the fat off the body to get this to shrink.

The internal stomach
This is the actual organ. This can get big too. Changes shapes. It is almost like an elastic that can be trained. You see a lot about the various operations folks are doing these days to shrink it. Some put a band on it, some put staples. Lots of things. I have been using fasting to get this down. I notice that slowly reducing your food intake does the trick. You will be hungry for about two weeks, but it works. In the last two weeks, I have brought it down from eating a -
burger, salad and a yogurt to
just a burger.
I now feel full after the burger. It worked for me.

Only thing to remember is that expanding the stomach, external and internal is a lot lot more easier than shrinking it. Got to be on the lookout all the time or it sneaks back on you.
