Shrink Stomach By Eating Less? Information About Reducing Stomach Size

If I Eat Less, Will My Stomach Eventually Shrink?

The stomach is a muscular organ – about the size of your hand – that stretches when full and returns to normal when empty. This stretching of the stomach is only temporary.

The only way to reduce the size of your stomach permanently is to undergo gastrointestinal weight loss surgery.
