I've been vegan on and off for the last 4 years. I was having gall bladder attacks so they took it out. But I still get the same pains now after I consume fat. So I need to get away from fat completely, but does anyone else experience this or has anyone heard of this? I've told 3 doctors about it and they didn't seem concerned. I've started the Mcdougall plan because it's all I can do without feeling pain. Maybe that's a good thing.
Hi there...I had my gallbladder removed thirty years ago when I was 24 years old. I cannot comfortably consume any type of fat. Over the years some of my relatives have had their gallbladders removed and they were fine, they could eat anything.
My doctor told me years ago that some people will have to restrict their diet forever and others can eat whatever they want. Here's a list of what I've eliminated from my diet...meat, dairy, oil, sugar, coffee, citrus, and wheat. I've been on McDougall's way of eating, mostly MWL, since January 19th of this year and feel fantastic. I can even eat small amounts of tomatoes now, they used to really bother me a lot.
I see my food restrictions as a blessing, my body wants whole, fresh foods, and I'm better off for it. I've done pretty much every type of way of eating you can find, this is the only one that works perfectly for me every time.
