Herbert, The way the anatomy of the stomach is that as you eat or drink your stomach will expand.  It started out small with accordion type structure called rugae, that allows expansion so that your stomach does not burst. There is no way to change this because nothing is wrong with your stomach. Maybe you should google the anatomy of the stomach and see what it is supposed to do. Hope this helps you with your questions. Take good care,
Love Goes There, Mag's Jeaneau
