Bananas make me feel sick

I really like bananas but every single time I eat one that is past the hard, yellow stage I get nauseated and bloated. It's a horrible feeling and then I can taste that banana over and over again. Am I a freak or does this happen to anyone else here?

I like bananas too, but I prefer them really ripe. Maybe you're not leaving them long enough past the hard yellow stage? I eat mine when they've gone black. The only problem I have is that sometimes they make me cough but I haven't been able to find out why.

If I eat them once they start to ripen they make me sick. There is some kind of gas that bananas give off as they ripen and I think that is the cause of it. If I eat them before they start to get brown, they don't bother me much, but once they start to get spotted, I cannot eat them.

I have heard of this before with other people that end up getting a really upset stomach after eating them. It does not happen to me but it seems like it happens more in adults than kids. Anyone know what it is called?

I like them best when they're green! I think they're meant to be better for you when they've got the black spots on but I hate the texture of them then.

I've heard that bananas can cause intestinal upset. It's one of the foods I was advised to stay away from when I was having GI issues. It can do a number on you!
