My Recommendations: A no-cholesterol, low-fat diet (including all vegetable fats too), for preventing gallbladder disease and gallstones. If you develop pain see your doctor. If the attack subsides and your situation is not a surgical emergency, then eat a very low-fat diet to avoid further attacks. Do not allow an operation to remove gallstones that do not cause symptoms.
Ironically, the overweight person who determines to improve his or her health by losing weight can end up with gallstones as a result of dieting. Within about sixteen weeks of beginning a low-calorie diet, 10 percent of dieters develop gallstones. . .
