Hi. : Hi. Here are some possible causes for gas. Swallowing air when you eat, eating food that has too high protein or fat content, or eating foods that tend to create gas (beans, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, soft cheese, prunes and apples) avoid eating large meals, as well as high fat foods. Eat slowly and chew thoroughly. With this said, there can be medical conditions that lead to flatus (passing gas). You need to be medically evaluated, especially if you have light colored bowel movements or abdominal pain.
