Is it true that beer makes your stomach distended?

There are many people who say that the consumption of beer can make the stomach becomes distended, especially if the drink were male and aged. But is beer really make someone's stomach becomes bloated? Apparently not all beer drinkers had a distended stomach, because these conditions are also influenced by other factors including lifestyle and how often the person's physical activity.

One factor that can make a person has a distended belly is a result of calorie intake too much, thus changing the size of the waist. Calories into the body can come from drinks beer, sweet drinks or large portions of food that can increase the fat in the abdomen.

Because when people drink beer, then the liver or liver will replace the alcohol into fat," said Michael Jensen, MD, endocrinologists and obesity researcher at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, as quoted from WebMD, Friday (07/16/2010).

Because of that beer can also be blamed because of the calories in alcohol is very easy to excess. A beer can has 150 calories and if someone is more often in a sitting position, it will be very easy for those calories to accumulate in the stomach. Besides calories from food consumed along with beer also contribute to the accumulation of fat in the abdomen.

When someone consuming more calories than a release, then the excess calories will be stored as fat. For the storage of fat is influenced by age, gender and hormones. Because more women store fat on the arms, thighs, buttocks and abdomen, whereas for men more store in the abdomen.

Which accumulates in the abdominal fat is associated with various health problems, ranging from type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure to cardiovascular disease. Because of excessive beer consumption not only affects the nerves in his brain, but the calories contained in it can make a person has a distended abdomen.
