Hello, I think I may have issues digesting bell pepper. Sorry about the following TMI...
No matter how ripe it is, it can be as green as grass or as red as a baboon's tushy, or it can be raw or cooked, after I eat bell pepper, I get bell pepper burps, and when I go number 2, it smells like bell pepper and has little chunks of bell pepper skin in it...and burns a bit. Is this a sign that I should probably not consume this fruit? Or is it natural that your poo will smell like the fruit you eat with chunks of it in it? It just seems so much more...intense than anything else I eat.
I also have issues with cooked tomato- the last few times I ate salsa from a jar, or marinara sauce from a jar, I threw up. I'm just wondering if there is any connection, that maybe I need to avoid the nightshades. (However, raw tomato gives me no issues as of yet, but I don't like the flavor of ones found in regular grocery stores). I also have no issues with cooked potatoes, but I've been avoiding them lately to improve my energy.
I can't digest raw bell peppers neither, but cooked are fine as well as other nightshades. But I can't eat cayenne powder neither.
I just avoid them. Maybe reincorporating them gradually could be a solution because I miss the taste.
Some of us are allergic to some plant foods. For me, it is pineapple. May be just avoid it.
It is also possible that your body is signally you to go more high raw. Many of us who tried to transition or eat high raw like RT4 have found that as time goes on, the body prefers raw foods and reacts badly to cooked foods. Hence you react better to raw tomatoes.
Another possible reason you reacted badly is that the pepper family, both sweet and hot, are high oxalate foods and you might be oxalate acid sensitive:
i thought it was normal that pieces of bell pepper are in your nr 2.. unless maybe when you're a constipated meat eater with a condensed turd..
If i eat corn the corn comes out looking just like it went in.. is that not normal?
