              A shocking 750,000 gall bladders are removed every year, just in the United States of America. Few of the patients of this procedure, if any, are given proper instructions on what to do afterwards. They are typically told to go home and continue life as normal, and to consider cu...tting back on their fat intake. The doctor who removed my gall bladder told me I didn't have to make any adjustments to my diet. Was he ever wrong! Well, I didn't have to make changes to my diet, but I wouldn't like the results either: vitamin deficiencies, chronic and urgent diarrhea, gas, bloating... The fact of the matter is that you will have to make some adjustments, because without your gall bladder, no matter how healthy you think you eat, you are not getting the proper digestion and nutrition you need. I am not a doctor, but you do not need to be one to understand this stuff. The good news is that the nutritional deficiencies and bowel-related unpleasantness are easy to counteract through diet, affordable over-the-counter nutritional supplements, and/or non-drug prescription dietary additives, which makes the lack of doctor-patient information/support all the more shocking and frustrating. This book is an attempt to fill the informational void-- what works, what doesn't, the chemistry behind it all (broken down in layman's terms) and how to properly compensate for your new underachieving digestive system. This book will help supply you with proper knowledge based on real science and experience from real people who have gone through it, experienced the reality of the nutritional side effects, and have triumphed over them. It is written primarily for you who have had your gall bladder removed. It may also be helpful to you who suffer from gallstones or generally uncooperative gall bladders, and are considering surgery or other treatments.
