Where did this "taco bell gives you the shits" meme come from?
I've eaten there several times and never had any problems. And I don't even eat fast food that much so its probably more likely to fuck my stomach up than people who eat FF on a regular basis
Maybe the people who say this should stop order XL nacho belle grande crunchwrap burrito supreme taco double decker chalupa shit
I ate Taco Bell once in my entire life. It was pretty good, but I shit my pants on the ride home. The stomach cramps preceding the shit explosion were so bad I almost drove off the road.
I had a nearly identical experience with Indian food. So I just don't fuck with the Bell or spicy food anymore.
I bet it's genetic, like lactose tolerance.
Taco Bell gives me heartburn, but I still eat it pretty regularly.
>Also wondering about the origin of spicy food "giving people the shits"
Do you eat spicy food? My shit turns liquid if I eat a bunch of habaneros or a bhut jolokia.
Not from stuff like cayenne or jalapenos though.
A food that disrupts the GI system while only in the stomach can trigger a series of signals to try to clear the system immediately. Obviously it takes many hours for something to be fully digested and shit out, but eating something disrupting can cause diarrhea very quickly of whatever else is in the large intestine. Fucking idiot
I dont know how often I see idiots spouting off about how the food takes a day to digest and it cant give you diarrhea and its "fron bing drinkin all weeken, not ur meal you ate 10 minutes before you shat your pants in the most undignified manner possible"
google the gastrocolic reflex, it's basically an increase in the urge to shit in response to your stomach stretching from a meal, and it is further increased from a meal that upsets the stomach, usually from either something spicy, or with a lot of bacteria
I can eat taco bell, white castle, wendys, checkers with no problem. Popeyes has fucked me up, but if I eat a Whopper from BK the entire contents of my intestines comes flying out 35 minutes later. I eat FF 1-2 times a month, so maybe my tolerance is low.
No idea, I can eat an ungodly amount of Taco Bell in one sitting with no problems.
For some reason, Haagen Dazs ice cream from their shops fucks my stomach up beyond all reason, but not their ice cream you can buy at the supermarket.
Where did this "everything is a meme" meme come from anyway?
I'm guessing this has to do with people never drinking enough water and not being acclimated to spicy foods. Spicy & salty food is probably contributing to the dehydration, making diarrhea more likely.
When people didn't want to come up with actual thoughts of way something was bad and be open to counter criticism. So you just call something meme to discount it and you don't need to come under fire for your opinions no matter how ill informed they are.
I can eat any other greasy fast food place, or any other Mexican food (authentic or otherwise) and feel just fine.
If I have anything from Taco Bell then I'm guaranteed to spend the night making trips to the shitter.
It could be. I had a catastrophic bowel purging one time from some jambalaya in New Orleans. I don't think it was food poisoning because my brother also ate it and he was fine.. I dunno, maybe I was allergic, or something, but I had the worst god damn cramps in my life, just like 30 minutes after eating it. Ran into a random bar and rushed to the toilet and nearly called an ambulance shitting my God damn bowels out. I had cold sweats and shivers it was so bad. The jambalaya passed through me in 30 fucking minutes flat. I know because there were bits of undigested rice, and the whole shit looked like puked up jambalaya.
My theory is that it just sounded funny, and the food looks more poop-like than most other foods, and so it caught on as a funny meme, before "meme" caught on as a funny meme.
Beans cause gassiness for some people, and spiciness can cause intestinal inflammation and poor digestion to a small portion of people, so it's possible it causes diarrhea more than most foods, but if that's true to even a limited extent, the lore is still greatly exaggerated.
I wonder about the regular diets of the people who have problems with fast food. Once, for about five months I was eating as healthy as I knew how; all lean meats, fish, veggies, nuts, etc. with no dairy or bread products. Then one day someone brought KFC to my house, and just two original recipe breasts had me running to the bathroom with vile, greasy, aching shits for the rest of the day. I speculate it's like ingesting poison once you've detoxed from everyday exposure, but if you eat that kind of garbage frequently you don't feel a thing.
I'm snow white and I love hot food. The best "study" about spicy food I saw said that those with masochistic tendencies prefer the hotter foods.
I get the shits from spicy food all the time, taco bell not at all but it tends to happen when i go to chipotle or eating pho with sri racha
[spoiler]as a mexican it used to be not a big deal but my family just HAD to have gallbladder stones run in the family. Now my ass feels like a levy every time 20 minutes after eating anything spicy or fatty[/spoiler]
i think the niggers working in this joint gave me food poisoning. i shat myself silly the next day and felt like throwing up. my friend was fine tho.
I've never ever had taco bell. I guess that the meme comes from the following :
stoned people eat a lot of food
Taco Bell's food contains a lot of legumes
Is also loaded with sauces and shit
is pretty low quality stuff
I figured it was like dogs for a lot of people. Such as you really shouldn't suddenly switch your dog's diet, or the chances of them having digestive issues(aka volcano shitting everywhere) is very high.
A sudden increase of greasy/spicy foods(or too much) could easily case a disturbance in your weak tummies.
