Each pineapple contains only a small amount of bromelain, so you'd have to eat large quantities (we're talking several pineapples) for this to possibly work. Eating several pineapples will likely have the same effect as a spoonful of castor oil, so if you end up eating six or seven, be prepared for the probability of an upset stomach.
