    A lot of men ...

    Hi

    A lot of men have a beer belly.
    A lot of men have beer bellies.


    Should I use plural or is it not necessary?

    I would go with the singular belly, unless some men you know have more than one belly, which, of course, depends on how much beer they drink.

    You'll get away with either of them.
