My boyfriend has really bad gas but he eats really fast and loves spicy foods, could those be the cause or are some prone to having a lot of gas?

In brief: Good clues!

Gulping food can also swallow lots if air that has to go somewhere! other gassy culprits: spicy foods, garlic, onions, "the magical fruit" beans, certain veggies (cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli), artificial sugars (nutrasweet, splenda, sorbitol), caffeine, dairy.
Increased fiber-although healthy-can make some of us gassy too.
