Garlic hurts my belly!

Please please oh PLEASE someone tell me I'm not the only one who is sensitive to the effects of garlic? I just don't understand it, I don't cook with that much and still, it bothers my sensitive belly! It bugs me so much since so many recipes have garlic as a main seasoning!

I can't be the only one! Right?!

My partner went through a period of garlic intolerance after a dish of pork and garlic cooked in milk. It was several years before he could eat garlic easily again.

Have you always had this problem? Does it make a difference how you cook it or how much you use in your recipes?

Yes!....I can tolerate only so much garlic.....if something is too, too, garlicky it upsets my stomach terribly. I get cramps and "the runs"....so now, I know how much to use in my own cooking, and, if eating out and it tastes too strong, I don't eat it.

Miss Kitty..

Are you talking about both raw and cooked garlic? Is this something new?

Maybe an antacid afterwards would make it possible to enjoy garlic without tummy problmes.

I know! Everyone I know loves garlic! I'm the only one out of my giant group of friends that can't tolerate it!

Such a bummer as I love to cook with it. Makes me sad.

UncleB, It's usually either, cooked or raw. Such a bummer. I usually do have to eat some sort of antacid after, which I normally don't have to eat for anything.
