You could have some bad bacteria in your guts that are feeding on the fibre, or maybe just not enough good bacteria to digest it well. Have you been eating those vegetables consistently for a long time? It can take the gut flora some time to adapt to new sources of chow. Cooking them thoroughly might help, since it reduces the toxins. Limiting portions is another thing to try; some people have a “threshold”, which is probably related to the state of their flora. Gas and bloating would be other signs that it’s the fibre.
