Eating fast and swallowing wind can cause bloating. Another cause of a distended stomach is abdominal fat around the organs. If it is fat, your waist measurement will be constant if you measure it morning and evening. Bloating would cause a difference in waist measurement. A way to determine whether your stomach muscles have strength is to do sit ups and see how many you can do in a minute - see http://www.topendsports.com/testing/tests/home-situp.htm
