Gas/Belching from eating just fatty meats.

I occasionally get bloated and gassy from eating fatty foods, especially pot roast and slow cooked meats. It's confusing why this may happen because from what I could research, gas production is usually associated with consumption of carbohydrates. I've had times where I definitely could not stop belching and had terrible heartburn, from only eating slow cooked meats. What gives? I did not necessarily eat too much, nor laid down too soon after eating, nor ate too fast. Pot roast, pulled pork, etc...always give me gas. I can understand heartburn, if my stomach isn't digesting the meat well, but why the gas production? Does anyone know the science here?

One thing I might add is that I can get heartburn not only from slow cooked meats. I get it once a week or two, from fatty foods, eating too much, lying down too soon, etc... all the common reasons. I don't have any serious diet restrictions, and issues except for heartburn. I normally do not burp or belch much.

Thanks. I'll look into that, and bile salts too.

I'll look into it. I also might try bile salts and see if they make any difference.

Another possible thing, you may have a sluggish digestion and lack stomach acid which is needed to digest well proteins & fats. Do you feel like the food sits in your stomach after eating these fatty meats?

If you only have problems digesting fatty meats that have been cooked for hours in the crockpot, consider preparing them in another way! And/or use spices that help digestion like ginger, black pepper & cayenne, cumin, etc. to see if it makes any difference.

Many possible things, gallstones or gallbladder are among them.

I'm not a doctor, so you should probably check with your doc.
