What Kind of Stomach Do You Have?

Some people can eat whatever they want — spicy dishes, fried foods, dairy products, and beans — and their stomachs are like rocks. They hardly ever get upset tummies. Then there are people with sensitive digestive systems, and anything they eat can cause tummy troubles. What about you?

Gluten and lactose intolerant... it's terrible. I blame my parents for feeding me rubbish as I grew up. Hardly any veggies at all.

I have Crohn's, but I have a stomach of steel oddly enough. Ever since I had a small piece of my colon removed, I've been able to eat ANYTHING. High fiber, spicy, fried, coffee, meat, you name it, I can tolerate it. I'm very lucky!

I have food allergies that range in reaction from anaphylaxis to bloating+tummy discomfort. I am fine as long as I stay away from those foods.

I'm the 3rd... Although I have had my colon removed.... but you'd think that would HELP with digestion: SURE DOESN'T!

Ummm, no. I have ulcerative colitis. It's not really involved with my 'stomach' but all other gut areas are out of whack. I can eat what I want (I guess) but I have to prepare for a world war the next morning. Or an hour later...

If I eat certain foods I can get gas (with cramps & all), I also belch (not sure if I spelled that right, I suck at spelling) alot. But my whole family has stomache problems. Me & my dad are the worst. I didn't have them until after i had my gull bladder removed.

good stomach, but last i knew my mother couldn't eat a plain bagged salad without having issues. I am vegetarian, so I stay away from all types of meat, and the smell of pork or beef coming off the grill normally induces me to hold down the vomit and run from the kitchen, yuk! :)

Pretty tough stomach, but processed foods give me pretty painful gas cramps, and, weirdly enough, so do raw broccoli and raw cauliflower.

I can hom on just about anything, unless it has MSG in it or it's undercooked meat. Instant coffee makes me quite ill as well, once you go bean instant just feels like your drinking acid.

Very sensitive! Dairy, fried foods and wheat usually upset my IBS on a regular basis!

Ridiculously sensitive, but no idea what causes it - seemingly everything?!

Stomach of steel. I'm pretty happy about that since I love ALL foods.

i'm lactose intolerant and fried foods make my tummy a little rumbly. it's a shame really because i do love mozzarella sticks.
I can pretty much tolerate anything.

Thanks to a healthy population of good flora in my gut, I can tolerate almost anything without a lot of problems. I can't eat a lot of fat gall bladder doesn't like it much. I think I've avoided greasy food for so long that my body naturally makes less lipase.

Almost anything fried upsets my stomach. I guess it makes it easier for me to avoid those generally unhealthy foods.
