You can swallow less air if you take your time. Make meals a relaxing experience; eating when you're worried or rushing increases the amount of air you swallow.

By avoiding carbonated beer or drinks.

They emit carbon dioxide gas, which causes your stomach to fill up with gas.

Avoid chewing gum and hard candies.

Chewing gum or sucking hard candy causes you to swallow more frequently than usual. Air is a part of what you're swallowing.

Examine your dentures.

When you eat and drink, ill-fitting dentures can cause you to swallow too much air.

Take a walk.

After you've eaten, go for a short walk.

Get a heartburn treatment.

Over-the-counter antacids or other medicines may be helpful for mild heartburn on occasion. GERD may necessitate the use of prescription medications or other treatments.

Remove specific foods from your diet.

Beans, peas, lentils, cabbage, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, whole grain foods, mushrooms, certain fruits, and beer and other carbonated beverages are all common gas-producing foods. To test if your gas improves, try removing one food at a time.

Pay attention to the labels.

If dairy products cause you discomfort, you may suffer from lactose intolerance. Pay attention to what you eat and try lactose-free or low-lactose options. Increased gas can also be caused by certain indigestible carbohydrates present in sugar free meals.

Reduce your intake of greasy meals.

Fat slows digestion, allowing food to ferment longer.

Reduce your intake of high-fiber foods for the time being.

Although fiber has numerous advantages, many high fiber foods also cause a lot of gas. Slowly reintroduce fiber into your diet after a gap.
