Selection: Selectively remove one item from your diet which you think may be causing this. Avoid it for 1 week. If no change, switch to removing another item, etc. If no luck, see your MD for options. Common foods are broccoli and beans, but people have different reactions to many foods. Good Luck.

Start with foods: To start investigating the source of your flatulence I would first start trying to determine which types of food make it worse. It's like you will find some trends. Secondly, I would reduce carbonated beverages. The gas you swallow has to come out somewhere!

Not sure: Monitor your diet and if it is excessive, or you have other symptoms, like heatburn, nausea, abdominal pain, see sa doctor and get checked.

The most common: cause for Intestinal gas is AIR SWALLOWING!!! This happens when you eat too quickly.....there are some foods (eg Beans and other legumes) which may produce gas upon digestion so DIET is also important! Hope this helps! Dr Z
