I am probably not one to give advice about primal, but I did note one thing in your dissertation... You speak of the small area of bulge from your navel and down a bit, and your refer to it a 'bloated' I am perplexed as when I think of bloating I think of a fullness feeling that comes on...or use to come on from time to time while eating poorly, and was up high, just below rib cage. The feeling always subsided after time. Does the are have a seperate feeling of pressure like air or somethign wrong with your intestines? Or perhaps is it just that last roll of fat that needs time to dissolve? I do know we lose fat fron different areas at different rates so maybe? Hope someone else can give ypu more help. I also have an HH and use to have severe Refulx from being a crazy drunk for 20 years....been dry for 10 now and my oesophagus smiles.
