    i've seen this a few times where the dude has abs, but the belly is still round and distended, is this a form of visceral fat forming on the underside of the abdominal muscles :dunno: or is it simply the stomach sac being so large that it actually pushes the belly out :dunno: or is it something else entirely?

    i couldn't find the example i was looking for of a dude with fully ripped abs but his belly simply looked pushed out, so i found a pic of a woman who doesn't look all that fat yet exhibits distension in the abdominal region

    the translation of the french caption:

    so this is saying that she has very little subcutaneous fat, so something else must be pushing her belly out to that extent
