It sounds like the symptoms referred to as "melon
belly'.

I've experienced melon belly a lot during the last 3
years (living 811rv) and I have experimented a lot
to find out what causes it. I usually get it from
melons and mangoes.

For me it has nothing to do with hydration as I have
been very well hydrated and still get it, nothing to
do with food combining as I eat melon alone, I've
tried with no overt fats in the diet and also tried
eating very slow. I still get it.

Here's my latest theory, and it seems to be correct
so far! I have had several instances of NOT getting
the symptoms, and it always happens when I find
really good quality, tree ripened fruit! Here in
thailand I get it from all mangoes except when I
find some exceptionally golden looking ones, really
well developed and full of taste! Sometimes I get
mangoes that are pale, they might still be super
sweet, but lack subtle tastes. I find the same with
melons, when I get the really huge, well developed,
sweet watermelons I dont get the symptoms. But it's
so difficult to find, it's like 1 out of a 100
almost.

So I think it might have something to do with how
long the fruit was left on the tree to develop
before picking. Maybe some toxins in fruit when
picked too early? who knows...and I'm not saying
this is the answer, just my personal observations
over time!
