Avoid Gluttony

Modesty is the crown (hallmark) of the common people. Keep this crown on your head if invited to a feast or if you are presented with food or drink. Do not be gluttonous devouring food as if you have not eaten for a long time, or as if you have not seen such excellent food before. Do not sample every dish on the table. People, even generous hosts disapprove of greedy eaters. Be reasonable and moderate in enjoying the generosity of your hosts.

{A man burped whilst in the company of the Prophet (saw), so the Prophet (saw) said: Keep your burping away from us! Verily, the ones who fill their stomachs the most in the Dunya (this world) will suffer the most from hunger on the Day of Judgement. (Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah, Al-Hakim)}
