30 Bananas a Day!

Does anyone else experiences stomach pain after eating such fruits as grapes, watermelon or pears? I get this intense, cramp like pain in my stomach usually in the morning, just a few minutes after finishing breakfast. It ususally last for 10-15 minutes, then it's gone. I experienced the same pain, too when I wasn't on a raw vegan diet and I had watermelon for breakfast.

Yesterday the pain even striked during dinner (eating grapes). I have never had stomach problems, heart burn, stomach acid or anything similar.


Any thoughts?

For me it's the same after a monomeal of grapes (no matter whether with seeds or seedless, or whether organic or not) or pears. Afterwards my stomach hurts, I feel a bit dizzy, and I want to sit down and wait - shortly after that the pain vanishes. Unfortunately, I also don't know the reason for that.
I don't experience lack of energy just some very intense pain after a mono meal (sometimes large amount, sometimes just a smaller one)
Me as well. Mines only with grapes...I think....I don't like pears so I can't tell you for sure. Watermelon I'm good with but grapes....wow man pain. I just pretty just will not eat more than a hand full at any given time. No idea why. sorry.
Mmmm no not that I recall with watermelon. It's pretty much just grapes. I can't think of the name...I think it the crazy sour concord???? They are so good but I just can't have them. Oh I just had a thought... Do you think it could be an issue digesting the skin of the grape?
I don't really feel tired. It just hurts (for a short time) and as long als it hurts I don't feel like exercising (because of the pain).
I experience the same thing with watermelon and grapes.  Both with and without seeds.  Not tired, just stomach pain for about 10 minutes.  So annoying!  I haven't tried mono meals with pears yet.
Wow! I just had my first experience of this this morning! The pain was intense and draining, had to sit for 10 minutes or so, before I dared to move. Then, as if nothing happened, back to normal. My meal was 2 very ripe Bartlett pears blended shortly, nothing added, and I drank it in about 5 minutes. In the next 5 minutes the pain started.

Never before ... and I select organic whenever there is a choice. These pears were from Argentina, and organic. Now I wonder if there were some chemicals added onto the pears to make the long trip to North America.

I don't eat apples for this reason. But I have noticed stomach pain when eating pears, and bananas on rare occasions.

Watermelon brought about the same feeling this afternoon. :(

"and bananas on rare occasions." For me it's the case, if I eat bananas too fast (what often happens when I drink a smoothie). Now I try to eat my banana-meal slowly in the period of an hour. 

:) Yes, it really helps to eat whole bananas.

"don't try and stretch it out over an unusually long period of time either" - Ok, I don't do that. I just start to eat (bananas) 1 h before I have to leave the house and not only 15 Minutes before. ;)

This always happens to be when I eat more than a few bites of watermelon or grapes, though never with any other foods.


I've discovered that drinking a little kombucha (which isn't 811 I don't think)before prevents or greatly minimizes the pain, so I wonder if it could be stomach acid-related.



Yep, I get serious issues when I eat grapes. I tend to eat green grapes, but I have had the same problem with red. I can not afford organic fruit in this country, unfortunately; out of the question. I always try to eat the grapes on an empty stomach (NO combining). The pain is quite odd; intense, nausea, sometimes sweating, and whoever I am around tells me I look awful. It usually subsides after I've gone to the bathroom. I have occasionally had it after eating other foods too.


I am trying to make more and more of my meals mono because I am having frequent digestive issues (I even did a banana island, and while the issues subsided they were still present). Sometimes everything is fine but most times I still have digestive complaints, made more apparent by exercise. I am hoping these things will pass after enough time of simple, mono or well combined meals and enough water (I am sipping now instead of gulping). 


I have been lfrv for about a month and a half, and gourmet raw before that for about another month and a half. I will try the greens suggestion (though I usually put greens in my morning smoothie...necessary to speed up the breakfast process... and sometimes even this upsets my stomach). I very much hope I don't have to supplement with chromium (sublingual b12 has already demanded my spare change)... though I wouldn't be surprised. The produce available in the Czech Republic has been grown in god-knows-what, and sprayed with I-don't-want-to-know for sure.
