Do stomachs shrink?

I'm talking about actual stomach size,,not the ab area,I watch a lot of 600 lb life and when he does the gastric sleeve he'll often comment that it's a huge stomach when he's cutting it out,sorry if it's a dumb question or been asked already but the search button only revealed posts about outer stomach shrinking-thanks :)

    I sure feel like today my stomach shrank lol. I'm sure that's not really the case but I got takeout from a Mediterranean place that I really, really wanted to eat and I could only eat a quarter of it. My stomach is so full right now, I can't even breathe. But yeah, before I started to eat, I was feeling ravenous and three bites into it, I started feeling full.

    That happens to me too when I'm super hungry! Wonder what causes it?

    could be satiation from certain macros? could be other things, some underlying conditions can cause that too. if you have a lot of bloating and feel very full from small amounts of food its best to see a dr about it., if it isnt gas then its nor a normal thing especially if its painful

    As an adult, your stomach pretty much stays the same size no matter what (unless you have surgery). It’s your appetite that changes. Smaller appetite = feel full quicker.

    I love WebMD!
