Me too. Absolutely love cherries... but always get bloated and gassy afterwards. No idea why.
I think it is because they're full of fiber, like plums.
funny thats the myth i grew up with about fruit that always made me afraid to eat "too much", it might have to do with something else, i do not get this reaction i just ate over 5 pounds of cherries, btw, loose stool and actual diarhea are way different things diarrhea is a bacterial thing that can dehydrate and kill you sure we are born to eat fruit but maybe you are recovering from eating other stuff still.
So I just put this to the test today and eat 2kg of cherries that I bought last Wednesday and yes **** hit the fan... now to find somebody with a scientific explanation :) else its just coincidence.
I eat a lot of cherries but I've never gotten diarrhea. The only thing that gives me the runs are prunes. It's all the fiber! Helps to stay hydrated. That's why plums give you less gas than prunes! :)
Yes -- have totally experienced that, but eat them anyway. There seems to be a tipping point. I can eat maybe 4 cups, but that 5th one....
