“My Stomach Shrunk.”

I have heard some people who are in the process of dieting and who are losing weight say: “My stomach shrunk.”

Over at Dr. Grandma’s, I read the article Honey, I shrunk My Stomach! by Joyce Bunderson.

At the website of LIVESTRONG.COM, there are a couple articles you might wish to read; they are:
HOW TO SHRINK MY STOMACH
DOES YOUR STOMACH SHRINK WHEN YOU LOSE WEIGHT?

You can also read the eHow™ article:
Does Your Stomach Shrink When You Lose Weight?

Now, are you ready for what follows, the source of which I cite in my very last embedded link of this Roland’s Ramblings blog entry?

Myth or Fact: If you cut down on your food intake, you’ll eventually shrink your stomach so you won’t be as hungry.
Answer: Myth. Once you are an adult, your stomach pretty much remains the same size — unless you have surgery to intentionally make it smaller. Eating less won’t shrink your stomach, but it can help to reset your “appetite thermostat” so you won’t feel as hungry, and it may be easier to stick with your eating plan.
