Pyknic is an adjective denoting a stocky physique with a rounded body and head, thickset trunk, and a tendency to be fat.

Thanks to this blogling for bringing me this word.

Perhaps being pyknic is caused by going on too many picnics -
Picnic - an excursion or outing in which the participants carry food with them.
