Hello, there is something wrong with me. If I dont eat for like 14 hours (sleeping) when I look into the mirror, my stomach is flat, but if I eat something, like 3 pices of pizza, my stomach gets big, and it looks like im an old man with a gut, please help!

Bloating is a common problem for many of us. You may want to try eating smaller meals, taking some digestive enzyme pills with every meal(talk to your doctor), and getting your liver and gall bladder checked. Some people have a slower gut transit time of food. Some doctor prescribe drugs like Reglan to speed up that. Also, some HIV medications can also cause bloating, so talk to your doctor about this.
