I did the same thing in the summer and got belly ache too! It passed within a day!. There was vinegar on the beetroot (I'm British) which I think in the large quantity irritated my stomach!. Drink lots of water because you will need it with all the fibre from the beetroot and the salt from the dressing and maybe on the beetroot too!. In the UK beetroot doesn't come in cans, it is in jars soaked in vinegar and seasoning, so am not familiar with having it from a can!. I agree though, beetroot rules! I get a mad craving for it every few months, indulge and then don't touch it for ages!. [email protected]@Com
You probably irritated your tummy a bit!. I bet it was tasty, though!. Just take it easy in the future!. :-)
Too much of ANYTHING (especially stuff high in acid, sugar, fat, or fiber) can cause upset stomachs!. [email protected]@Com
That's just a lot of anything to eat at one sitting!. You will definitely feel the effects of the fiber : ) I can do the same thing with spinach, though, so I'm not judging!.[email protected]@Com
They are a very fiberous root vegetable with a LOT of fiber!. You ate too much and will probably have a lot of gas, diarrhea and your stool may be colored!.[email protected]@Com
Beets are also high in sugar!. Eating too much at once can be tough on your sugar/insulin levels!. Careful !.
I wouldn't worry !. Half you tried raw beetroot grated in a salad!?[email protected]@Com
