Pronunciation: Epee-lip-id-sed-ih-ment

Sentence: Jason's penchant for pounding beers and caffeinated drinks throughout the day belied his half attempted efforts to lose weight. Unfortunately for him, his rationalizations of his EZ-Chair Ab Workout and 12 ounce arm curls were not enough to overcome the epilipidsediment from settling around his belly.

Etymology: Epi (put on) + lipid (fat) + sediment (a play on sedentary, to stay in one place/ mendacious, to lie)
