How to stop your stomach from growling in class We've all been there - sitting in the middle of class when, suddenly, your stomach makes growling noises. It's normally not just one growl, not two, but several noises. It's embarrassing to say the least... Why do stomachs growl? Stomachs growl when you have an empty stomach. The actual noises are caused by the air being squeezed around in your digestive system. Your muscles contract as if they're digesting food, when, in fact, there isn't any food to digest. This is caused by hunger / appetite. How do I stop my stomach from growling? The key to keeping your stomach from growling is eating. It's easy to eat a small snack during passing periods, while walking to your next class. I suggest eating anything of good content - by this, I don't mean a packet of chips or a granola bar. Fruits work great, as they fill your stomach with fruit juices and other nutrients. Breakfast VERY is important to the start of your day as well, without a good breakfast, your stomach will growl furiously! My stomach is growling during class! WHAT DO I DO!? Get your water bottle/juice bottle out and drink up. This'll fill up your stomach and give your digestive system something to digest besides air. With the liquid in your stomach, the air won't make [as many] sounds as it would make if it were alone in there. If your stomach persists, don't act on it. If anything, laugh at yourself, or just ignore it. Remember that this happens to EVERYBODY at one time or another. Sources: [x] [x] Anything to add? Any constructive criticism? Please post it here!
