Is Burping after Meals a Problem?
I'm just wondering if I'm abnormal or not.
I burp after meals all the time. I think I belch more after a fatty meal, but I'm not entirely certain about that. Today I drank half a cup of coffee, black, and felt the need to burp quite a lot. XD This isn't painful at all, to the contrary it honestly feels sort of good. Is that weird? Should I worry about this? There's no stomach upset or pain. Is anyone else like this? Thanks!
It's usually swallowed air or gas, no real significance. Inhaling while you sip, or drinking carbonated/fermented things will do it.
Hmm, maybe I'm eating too fast. In fact, that's rather likely. I'll try to slow it down a bit.

Since going Primal I thought eating as much animal fat as I could was a good thing.
It's more to help with eating to satiety instead of past it. When you eat very quickly, you can eat more food than you actually want/need. When you eat slowly, it's easier to recognize your body's satiety signaling and you can eat to appetite without blasting right through it.
I'm not sure where you heard that. The point isn't to eat as much as you possibly can, whether that's animal fat or otherwise. The point is to eat enough food to satisfy hunger and nourish your body with the nutrients it needs.
