What is the meaning of THE “POT BELLY” or “OMENTUM”?

The “pot belly”, commonly perceived as a protruding stomach, is mostly a result of fat accumulated within the abdominal cavity (known as “omentum” – the membrane in the abdominal cavity that connects and supports internal organs, which is composed of many folds that pass between or around the various organs), and not due to a protruding stomach. A reduction in weight, and particularly your body fat, will significantly help in the fight with “the battle of the bulge”.
