  • Avocado intolerance

    Anybody else get ill effects from eating avocado?

    I usually avoid it as it gives me a wicked stomachache for HOURS, but I thought 'Hey maybe I can handle them now,' and had a half with my bacon and eggs on Sunday.

    Nope. Bad stomach all day. I've never heard of a reaction to avocado, hence my question; does anyone else suffer from this?

    I get that reaction with too much fat in one meal. Maybe try a 1/4 by itself?

      My husband does. If he has one bite he's got a stomach ache and bad gas all day.

        Sorry to hear that! You're not alone though - my mother-in-law can't handle avocado either.

          ME TOO! I can't eat avocado either for some reason. My stomach just does not like it and I feel really sick after eating it.

              I get this too....even just a tiny bit in some sushi will set me off. Terrible stomach cramps for hours. Very frustrating since I love them and know how healthy they are, just can't eat them. I will be watching this thread with interest!

                Meh, I just think they taste disgusting. Guacamole gives me an upset stomach, and avocado right out of the peel is just... mush. Blech.

                  I don't get stomach problems, but I do break out if I eat avocado. If you're eating one exotic food too frequently, you develop a sensitivity to it and an overproduction of antibodies. Don't get caught up in the health promotion. It doesn't matter how much nutrition it contains if your body is giving you symptoms like stomach aches, nauseousness, or skin irritation. Listen to your body and don't ignore the signals.

                      Oh, man! Avocado sends me into a brutal spell...severe nausea, dizziness, stomach cramps - it literally knocks me out. I have tried on three separate occasions and the exact same effects happened each time. I have given up on avocado :-)

                        Avocado gives me TERRIBLE pain in my lower right abdomen, and loose stools. in Traditional Chinese Medicine I think its considered a highly "damp" food.

                        Anyhoo I think they are overrated by CW standards - just because they are a plant based non-scary form of "healthy" fats.

                          It's lots of fiber in an avocado. I can have some, but I have to make sure I don't overdo it along with other fruits. Any sudden changes in fiber and I get abdominal pain.

                              Yes, avocado is high in polyols which many people are intolerant of. I haven't eaten any lately but it tears me up, along with apples, stone fruit and most fruits high in fructose.
