Eating quickly

Wolfing down food gives air a chance to get into your stomach, resulting in bloating and/or excessive burping. If you have trouble slowing down when you eat you can try several 'mindful eating' techniques, these include: allowing half an hour for each meal, sitting down to eat, putting less food on your fork and pausing to enjoy the smells, tastes and textures of each bite.
