i went from 110 to 190 lbs in a couple years, i didnt eat much before, and all the new fat seems to have gone to my stomach : ( im 5'3, 190lbs with a 49 inch waist, 44 in hips. its too jiggly to look pregnant, but it looks very weird, like a pillow shoved under my shirt or something. i dont know what to do about this, or maybe its not as big a deal as people say, ive been told its abnormal to have so much fat on stomach. i need help and advice ( im way to embarassed to go to my doctor, so thats out)![alt text][1]

never be embarassed to talk to your doctor! Theyve heard and seen all kinda things. Just go and get a full physical to rule out any serious issues. Then you can start a healthy paleo plan. :)

I agree. Please go to your doctor and schedule an abdominal ultrasound and a mammogram (breast cancer can also cause fluid buildup in the abdomen).

If I were you I would see a doctor it could be a cortisol issue, or it could be something more sinister like a gynecological tumor. I have seen people put on 70-80 pounds only to find out they had an ovarian tumor that was taking up space and producing estrogen causing them to store fat. Just see your doctor and rule out these possibilities.

Firstly, gaining over 70% of your body weight is disturbing. Unless you've greatly changed your dietary habits you should see a doctor. Checking your thyroid might be in order. But if you are certain diet is to blame then I recommend you go on a low carb (< 75 grams/day) Paleo diet. Although I've never been particularly heavy I am amazed at how lean my mid section has become after a few months of doing a low carb diet.

people store fat in different area, you just happen to store it in the abdominal section, the weight gain is easy to explain, caloric surplus...you dont need a doctor to figure that out lol :P,

Yep, abdominal fat, more typical for males but perfectly possible for females as well.

Basic advice: eat less move more.

Less basic advice: go paleo/primal through a program or just on your own. That will require some amount of willpower, as well as figuring out what works for personally you.

No one can fix your body for you -- it's your responsibility.
