sezza85 Posted April 14, 2012 Share Posted April 14, 2012 Hi All! Not so much a medical condition as such I know, but I was wondering if anyone else with has had their Gallbladder removed has had any problems with their Whole30? I did my first Whole30 throughout February and it was fantastic - i'm so glad I stumbled across it. I relaxed slightly for about 3 weeks and am now back on board, say at least 95% compliant - couldnt fight the sugar demons over easter, had a bad day on the scales and took it out on chocolate! I found after my whole30 aside from the obvious benefits of loosing a few extra kilos, I have so much more energy and recover so much better from my workouts. I'm definately in for the long haul! The downside however, is I find i'm suffering in the digestion department.. I initially thought it may be due to not drinking enough water or getting enough fibre, but my veggie/fruit intake is relatively high. I get constipated for days, and feel heavy and full, its an awful feeling.. The only way to solve it is to depend on laxatives, but this is not a viable long term solution. It only occured to me recently that my lack of gallbladder may be effecting this, as I dont have the ability to break down fats and proteins as easily.. Im about to start taking digestive enzymes plus a magnesium supplement.. Has anyone else suffered similar symptoms? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
