The feeling that you get after eating that your stomach is swollen is called belly bloating. Excessive gas production and problems in the digestive tract movement are the main causes of this. To relieve bloating, avoid eating a lot in a single meal, do not drink aerated drinks, take digestive enzymes supplements, and limit alcohol consumption.
