      Hey - you're sitting on that sore!

        That's a quad belly? Your stomach is flatter than most walking people.

          I eat once during the day and bowl of cereal at bed time and mine is huge! I blame Lyrica for that. What's your secret?

            Beer clears things right on through, eh, Adi? That is not a quad gut or even a para belly.

              goodness...that's weak. My belly o quadness puts that to shame! Mine's terribly huge.
              Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.

                    Adi, you must have quite a lot of abdominal spasticity to maintain a 6-pack like that!

                        i had a real bad gut up until 1 month ago. now that im on crutches it's disappeared overnight.


                        the more you stand, the more it goes away. if you have a standing frame, it'll help LOADS. trust.

                            Most "quad belly" is not from obesity or being overweight. It is because the paralyzed abdominal muscles overstretch due to the weight of the internal organs. Once the muscle overstretches, unless you have either voluntary control of the muscle or significant spasm, there is no way to strengthen the muscle again. Prevention is the best plan. Use of an abdominal binder will help to prevent the overstretching, and can help somewhat once the stretching has occured to try to get back that slim figure again.
