Had problems with flatulence? Tips: 1) Eat SLOWLY and chew your food thoroughly - the faster you eat the more oxygen you swallow. 2) Don't drink through a straw for the same reason. 3) Avoid greasy foods. 4) Take SIPS of a non-carbonated beverage between bites of food. 5) Avoid carbonated drinks. 6) Don't overeat and force your stomach into overdrive.
