I am nearly five weeks and have eaten three containers of guacamole since Sunday. Is that unhealthy?
Lowers cholesterol: I haven't seen studies specifically on guacamole, but it's mostly avocado. Avocado (& the other ingredients in guacamole), like all fruits & veggies, has no cholesterol, but it is rich in fats, primarily monounsaturated fats. Several studies have shown avocado significantly lowers total cholesterol levels & more specifically lowers "bad" ldl, while, according to some studies, raising "good" hdl. ...Read more
Ate spicy chips and guacamole. about an hour later i feel bloating, pain in upper abdominal area, pain when i move, kinda nausious. any suggestions?
Dyspepsia: ... Can commonly occur after eating greasy, fatty foods. If this is the first time this has happened to you, I would suggest trying liquid antacids, such as Mylanta or Tums, (calcium carbonate) to start.

I can eat guacamole just fine, but for some reason, when i try to eat avocado on its own, i have an intolerance. It bothers my stomach. Why is this?
Not quite sure but it could be if the guacamole is made with sour cream, that that is helping the stomach tolerate it?
Had a 3rd bowel movement today that was green and looked almost like guacamole. Could it just be that food moved too quickly through my body?
Why when I eat guacamole do I feel like I have a cast iron skillet in my stomach? The pain is unbelievable and pushes out my back. Help.
Why eat it then?: Food intolerances are amazingly common & very individualized. In one series, 10% of patients were intolerant of water! if you had celiac disease, we'd tell you to avoid gluten; if lactose intolerant we'd ask you to restrict milk products, so if intolerant of guacamole, then don't keep suffering--just don't eat it. Or, try eating guacamoles each with one ingredient missing to find your problem food. ...Read more
Horrible upset stomach after too much guacamole. Excessive belching and flatulence for almost one day?
Began vomiting after eating guacamole at a family gathering. 1 other person also became ill. Day 2 I have developed bad diarrhea. Can i take questran (cholestyramine)?
No- see your doc...: Food poisoning / GI infections from food typically results in a defense mechanism in your body of evacuation ( you are literally trying to get the "stuff" out of your body). Cholestyramine essentially slows the progession of feces through your system; if there is infection, you are extending its presence. This medication is not recommended until you are sure you don't have an infection. ...Read more
Flagy/cipro about 1 month ago for divertic. Diarrhea, no pain, ++mucous, today light green stools, look like guacamole. C-diff? do I need antibiotics
Cdiff: Hello and welcome to HealthTap, I would suggest waiting for 2-3 days; if your symptoms fails to improve; let us know, will text you for C.Diff first. It is a little unlikely since Metronidazole/ flagel is the 1st line treatment for Cdiff and you were already taking it with Cipro (ciprofloxacin) when you had the diverticulitis. I hope it helps. Thank you ...Read more

Am i dying ?
I don't know: I don't know, john. Technically, every person who is alive will die someday, yes. But unless you have been diagnosed with some untreatable illness, then no, you are not actively dying.
