Low fats and exercise
Che23nb posted:
I recently had my gallbladder removed and seem to have problems when I eat fat (diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, and vomiting) . I know this can be normal and I try to eat low fat. But I have recently returned to biking with my husband and have had the same body reaction as if I had eaten lots of fat. I'm wondering if by increasing exercise and burning fat, my body is having to process both that fat and the small amount of fat I eat and it's too much for my liver?
If so, how can I eat a VERY low fat diet and still be healthy AND still be able to bike as much as I want without a negative reaction?

One in five patients who have gallbladder removed will have digestion and diarrhea problems. Research this on the web. Some foods are more helpful than others I think.

Food choices we make in our life have an important effect on our health. Your primary goal should be to limit your total daily fat intake. Figure out what fat items you are consuming daily and find out its replacements.
