Are there any foods that if you eat, you're immediately rushing to the bathroom?

On occassion, after eating a salad or drinking a cup of coffee even, I'm immediately rushing to the restroom and get the runs. How about you? What foods go right through you like that?

A salad or a cup of coffee, Juls? What are you eating the rest of the time if these make you rush to the bathroom? LOL I can't think of anything, in normal circumstances. Thank goodness!

I know...pretty lame topic, but I was curious if other people experienced the same thing with a salad & coffee. I'm more of a tea drinker and eat a balanced meal most of the times. Just strange how certain foods....trigger a specific result. Onions are getting me lately too. You're lucky to not have any foods cause a reaction for you.

Yup, guess I must be. The only time I can remember being sick unexpectedly after food was when I was a child and had eaten a salad that included beetroot and tomato. For some time afterwards I was convinced I could never eat these two items together, but it was just nonsense. I must have had a reaction to something else altogether!

I have a problem with Taco Bell's Grilled Stufft Burritos. Gets me every time. I think it's the outrageously high sodium content that does it. In fact, extremely high sodium foods are almost gauranteed to do it to me.

I'll have to watch more closely to exactly what I've eaten and see if the sodium content is what might be doing it for me also.

Coffee, especially cappicino or too much soda! The caffiene overdose will do it every time. Fast food also makes me feel crappy : )

Salad does that too me, it gives me a really bad stomach. The annoying thing is I really like it & it's good for me.

I have that same problem usually after I eat at McDonalds. So when I know we are going there to eat, I don't make any other plans. We have to come right home.

I agree with the other poster, since having my gallbladder out - anytime I eat fatty foods that do not have a substantial amount of fiber with it, will cause me to have the hershy squirts. My husband has also had his gallbladder removed, so if we are both eating poorly there can be real trouble in the house!

i'm not really having a problem such as yours 'coz i can eat anything & just feel alright the whole day round. i normally go for a comfort room every morning as a habit also or may in a pressured situation or i'm tense that i may look for a CR at any time of the day. when it comes to foods what i just have noticed then is a day after eating blue marlin fish you gonna have this kind of oils coming out with our waste too but it's not gonna bother a lot.

Its not the food that makes me rush to the bathroom, but some situations. If I panic or I have to take a sudden important decision, I feel the need. All types of food basically agree with me.
