The digestive/regular motion points are important ones; when the stomach is full there is more pressure on the chest area because the lungs cannot expand as far downwards as they should be able to and so breathing is restricted, add a belt and you get even further restrictions on the breathing. The fullness of the stomach can also cause food to be forced back up into the throat and for GERD/acid reflux to take place; using a belt under those circumstances could add to the problem, since even squatting and movements that place added pressure on the abdominal area can cause the reflux to occur even without the addition of more tension in the form of a belt.


I read way too much stuff
