I have been troubled by this since last summer
Does sitting down immediately after a snack make your stomach bigger? What about after a big meal? Both?

Hi!
Yes, eating a big meal can cause bloating and distension, especially if you have eaten something that causes gas formation (foods with preservatives, fuzzy drinks, cabbage, radish etc). On the other hand, an umbilical (belly button) or para-umbilical (side of belly button) hernia could also be the cause and needs to be ruled out. If you have an inflammatory bowel disorder like IBS, Crohn's, celiac etc, then this too can cause bloating after  a small meal. Take care!
