No: most common cause is hemorrhoids. If you are exercising, you have more leeway to eat what you like.

Not per se: The foods you described do not cause bleeding in the intestine. If you have noticed blood in your stool, it is imperative that you consult your doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form.
