In brief: Build up tolerance

Fruit is rich in fiber, and fiber can cause you to have bloating.
This is more common with suddenly increasing the amount of fiber in your diet (like fruit). As for the diarrhea, fiber also reduces the time it takes food to travel through the gut. To help: drink more water, exercise more, and eat fruit (or other fibrous foods) more often.
