Gastro-colic reflex: Not an uncommon phenomenon, but consider: are your symptoms related to all foods or only some foods? Is the volume or temperature of food a factor? Do your symptoms occur with every meal or only later in the day? Do you have associated symptoms of nausea, vomiting (with or without blood), biliary colic, tenderness, stool urgency with meals, blood or melena in stool? Any stress recently?
