It’s been so long since my gallbladder was removed—ten or eleven years ago—it didn’t occur to me until reading introductions last night that it’s supposed to be an issue. For the first few years I did have trouble with milk, fried foods, and raw vegetables. I also developed IBS issues that went from one extreme to another. It was a pretty miserable time for me, overall. Now I wonder how much the CW (conventional wisdom) of my doctors who told me to eat moar whole–grain fiber prolonged my recovery.
For the past five years, at least, I’ve been a dedicated consumer of fat from, at first, the standpoint of going back to university and consuming all the calories I could get without paying any attention to food quality to my current lifestyle of conscious, clean eating. Despite dropping almost all grain consumption and my precious psyllium tablets, my digestion is better than ever. As with anything that anyone says regarding health, your mileage may vary.
