    While eating a meal, take your time to eat your meal; for if you rush to finish your food, you will then inhale excess air which will cause you to bloat and this adds to the air already in your body which will mix with your acids and cause you to burp.
    Take notice of when you see people stuff their mouth with food, how they tend to burp or belch excessively during their meal, for they are allowing too much air into the body to mix with their acids.
