  • Going primal without gall bladder????

    Should this be a problem?

    Depends. I am gallbaldderless thanks to stupid pregnancy hormones. I've never had digestive problems afterward though no matter what type of diet I am eating. Depends on your body's sensitivity. Doesn't hurt to try!

        I had my gall bladder out while "low carbing" (Atkins very similar to Primal). Never had an issues except right before the last attack and a few months afterward where my trigger foods (any processed pork, nuts) bothered me for a bit. Was able to go back to my normal high fat, low carb eating. and eat my trigger foods again and still can, no issues.

          I have no gall bladder and never even considered it an issue to going primal, and nearly 3 months in I feel some much better than before. I had problems with never being full and lethagy after having Gall bladder removed and that's totally solved being primal too

            I was gassy and bloated as all hell for months after having my gallbladder removed, and still eating mostly primal.

            I bought digestive enzymes and took them with every meal. It made a huge difference. Eventually, I stopped using them.

            Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.
