    Avocado intolerance

    Primal Fuel
    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.
