Stomach getting bigger despite exercise. Can you help?

Hi, I workout 3-4 sometimes 5 days a week, really depends, but my workouts are of weight lifting, one day arms and cardio, another legs and cardio, and another day circuts and cardio, and on other days when available some light 30 min jogging. But I have noticed my stomach is getting way bigger, and I am getting very uncomfortable about it and I am not sure why. I dont eat that bad all the time, and I try to eat few snacks so I dont have to have a huge meal and that way I can keep my metabolism running. there are some days were I eat a little more due to times of classes, so missing meals, and then workout times. Is there any way you can help me and tell me why my stomach is getting much bigger even though I am working out and doing ab workouts as well?

Hi,

Noted your history well and understood the concerns.
First of all we have to know the cause of bulging abdomen whether excessive fat deposition within the abdomen or flabby abdominal muscles or extra fat in the abdomen wall or combination of any.
The exact findings can guide you to get the problems solves.
or example if you have loose muscles of abdomen wall you will have to increase work ups for the abdominal wall muscles under the guidance of a trainer.
And fat reduction with the helps of proper exercises and diet control.
No alcohol at all.
Reduce the sugars and fats in diet and beverages.
Watch out for the BMI and act accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
