I highly suggest buying a scale... I bought one pretty cheap at Target... it makes measuring a whole lot easier, and over time you'll get good at eyeballing how many grams are in a serving.

Rapid weight loss can definitely cause gallstones - your body dumps cholesterol into the bile and stones form in the gallbladder. I can tell you that I formed stones losing weight on a high fat paleo diet, to the point that I had to remove my gb.... (more)

Is the solution as straightforward as losing the weight? I would guess the problems are related to what you're eating and not your weight. Have you tried any kind of elimination diet? I saw Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride speak very... (more)

In all of the peoples that had a gall bladder removed because they "had-to",did the educated "official" ever suggest taking 5000mg-8000mg of L-Ornithine,which is about a dollar and rapidly opens the duct!?

I so wish I knew this back in 2000 when I had mine removed. Was the worst mistake I've made health wise. Wish I could go back and sue the doctor.
