Default raw vegetables can cause stomach cramps?

Six months in to my new eating regime, I've finally figured out a problem I've been having: too many raw vegetables cause stomach ache. Someone told me that as you get older you may not produce enough stomach acid to digest loads of raw vegetables; that we should lightly cook them or spread them out throughout the day and east gentler stuff in between. A test is to sip cranberry juice (it's acidic) after eating a load and see if that settles your stomach.

Heard of this?
