Loosing pot-bellys

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I am sure I have read somewhere through my online educationals that smokers tend to store fat around their middle.

Despite my gym sessions and diet I could never flatten my belly so I was interested to see this.

I told my husband about it and he couldn't believe it - and now I can't find it again.....has anyone else read this and if so where have I seen it?

I found this link

If you look at the part marked"Body Shape" it explains it.

I too thought I had seen something.http://old.ash.org.uk/html/factsheets/html/fact10.html



Thanks for that Hope wasn't what I'd seen but the same info.

Sorry it's taken me so long to reply :o



well i defy that theory cos i have huge hips and a tiny waist and tummy. i dont believe for a second its got anything to do with being a smoker/ex smoker. its to do with your body type.


Shame - I was looking forward to a flat tummy:D
