    Do People With Pot Bellies That Just Hang Over The Trousers Eats A Lot Of Food?

    People with large stomachs may be guilty of overeating; but, they are pobably more guilty of eating the wrong types of food.  Food today - fast food and processed food - is loaded with empty calories, artificial sweeteners, bad fats and other things that have no right to be in a healthy body.  Couple this with a lack of exercise and you have chronic obesity.

    I feel I should say that some people are the victims of medical conditions that cause them to be unable to lose weight causing them to be overweight.

    People with pot bellies may consume too many calories and not exercise enough but they also might have to buy bigger pants.

    could be.

    Either eating too much, or just too much of the wrong stuff. The calories can add up REALLY quickly when you start eating junk food - even a small amount.

    Alcohol can also be a major factor.

    In most cases yes, however sometimes there may be a medical reason why they are that size. So you should not judge a book by it's cover...

    Alcohol could play a huge part in their heavy weight. People who drink heavily often eat very unhealthy foods at the same time. To make matters worse, your body turns off its fat metabolism while it's processing alcohol. So, if you're drinking heavily and eating fatty foods, your body can't burn the fat. It just stores it until the alcohol is out of the body.

    This is not necessarily the case as this kind of condition generally results from excess toxins, pollutants and or contaminants contained in what has been consumed, and in some way the additional answer to your question is yes but only due to the fact that where an individual regularly consumes copious amounts of food that is not burnt off, the consumption is as a result of there being very little or no nutrition at all contained in the fods eaten and so because our bodies only demands nutrition or the nutrients contained in the foods we eat, what we'll end up doing is continually eating if the food we've previously eaten is classified as being dead, i.e., contains very little or no nutrition what so ever.

    Not necessarily. As other hubbers mentioned alcohol can play a big part together with the wrong types of food. Lastly, eating at inappropriate times (just before bed).
