Olive oil causing tummy problems

Has anyone experienced extreme bloating and gas in the stomach when consuming olive oil? I have been eating it for a week and my tummy doesn't like it all...am I the only one?

    Are you cooking with it or consuming it straight?

    My son is allergic to olives. Could you have a food allergy, sensitivity or intolerance? Also the gallbladder can cause issues when consuming fats. Maybe avoid it until you can check with your doctor.

    I'm pouring over a tablespoon over each dish I meal prep for breakfast and dinner...I didn't cook with it because I thought it would be hard to consume the entire serving so I poured it over my food instead..do you think that's why it's causing the bloat and gas?

    Maybe eliminate it for a day or so and see how you feel.

    What is in your meals? I'd say it's potentially other ingredients that are causing issues

    It's very possible that your stomach just doesn't like that much oil at a time. Maybe try skipping for a few days, then trying again, to be sure it's the oil. Then skip a few more days, and start with a smaller amount for a while. You can always ease up to more if you want to, and your stomach handles it.

    Have you changed other parts of your diet as well or have you just added the oil? Changes in diet of any kind can cause upset stomachs.

    I believe the serving size is one teaspoon instead of a tablespoon. I pour a teaspoon over a warm plate of food to get healthy servings of oil. Sometimes I use canola instead

    The serving size is one tablespoon

    I just added it to my diet last week...didn't feel like this until then so that's how I know it's the oil

    This is what I may have to do. I just didnt knw if this is common or not..I never would have thought oil would have this effect
