Alana in Canada Posted December 24, 2013 Share Posted December 24, 2013 Hi! I did a whole 60 last year--in October and November. I followed a fairly low carb regimen until May when I was told I had tiny gall stones and would need to have surgery to remove my gall bladder. At that time, I declined. It had been a relief to get the diagnosis, however. From about the third week of the whole60 and about every four or five weeks after that--like clockwork!--I would suffer horribly. The last attack--in May had me bedridden for five solid days of pain. I lost 10 pounds that week. I had LOVED the fat I'd eaten while on the whole30 (and subsequently). --But, because of the gallstones, I stopped eating it--and started filling up on pasta, rice, legumes and potatoes, again. I gained all the weight I'd lost too. (40 pounds in all, from October to May, not counting that last 10. I'm a big girl--I could stand to lose more.) ANYWAY--thanks for sticking with me-- I want to start a whole30 in January but I am scared to death I may bring on another gall stone attack. As well, I'm afraid that if I do a low-fat version of the whole30, I will feel hungry. That will significantly sabotage my success. What would you advise?
