    Do fat people pass more wind than skinny people?

    I am asking this question because a few days ago I must have eaten my supper earlier than usual. As a result, I woke in the morning feeling extremely hungry. So I decided to make massive breakfast before shooting out of the house. This consisted of 4 eggs, 4 sausages and 1 beef burger not in a bun.

    A few minutes after finishing eating this I found myself breaking wind every so often. It was crazy as I found myself in this uncontrollable situation.

    I only weigh 9 stones and half and would not normally consume so much food under normal circumstances.

    But this whole experience leads me to wonder whether fat people whom I presume eat more calories on regular occasions than a normal person break more wind.

    I do apologise for this rather odd question. But I want to find out what people think.

    It's got nothing to do with calories, it's what you eat.
