I love mangoes and lately I enjoy eating a whole mango every day or so but about a minute after eating a mango I get stomach cramps?

Moderation: Mangoes are the best fruit. You may try to limit your intake to small portions, rather than eating a whole mango in one sitting. You may be able to gradually increase the amount you could eat at one time.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
