Ever since going raw and eating more fruit, I tend to burp more often.

Yes depending on the foods. Salads and hard fruits like apples do it for me.

no I burp less.
If apples and hard foods make you burp then chances are you aren't chewing them enough. Take smaller bites and chew more thoroughly :o)

I wonder if your gall bladder is cleansing some congestion. I took a blow to the ribs today in the liver area and I've been belching from it. I bumped it again later and instantly burped. Weird. Cucumber and apples yesterday.

Melons are the worst for me. I always assumed that it was cause by me opening my mouth too far to get those big chunks and swallowing too much air.

Actually, as far as i know, belching has to do with swallowing air as you eat or drink, and little to do with the kinds of food you are eating. I also know that carbonated drinks make you burp, but in those instances, you are actually expelling carbon dioxide from the drinks themselves.
You may be swallowing more air than usual if you are drinking or eating things too fast and not chewing each morsel properly. Most of us cannot really tell when we are swallowing air, either because we are doing it unconsciously, or because we swallow some air along with food.

He certainly could be swallowing air by not chewing thoroughly or adding enough saliva all the voids between larger food particles would be filled with either air or saliva hurried eating can cause the intake of air.
As well though, Even with good chewing and saliva production, digestion creates and releases gasses. It is one of these gasses that signal the lower esphogeal sphincter to close tightly and keep stomach contents from rising up the esophagus. Incomplete digestion for various resons can cAuse gas to be expelled as well as acid and contents to be regurgitated. Reflux. Taking a teaspoon of apple cider in a little water helps to signal the valve to close more tightly and may stop the burping by aiding the digestion in the stomach. Low acid production, not enough saliva combined with the food, incomplete chewing can all contribute to problems with reflux or gas and burping. Fermented foods help too. Since he's taking a fruit meal,'better chewing, more saliva, HCL (hydrochloric acid) supplements, or something acidic (acv/lemon juice) may help. Biting the tip of your tongue for a fee seconds will help create more saliva. Longer time chewing as mentioned will aid digestion and signal a tighter valve closure as well.
