Nutrition & Dietetics

Limiting fat and insoluble fiber in your diet after gall bladder removal should offset diarrhea. High fat foods include anything fried, with butter or oils, nuts, seeds, avocadoes and whole milk dairy products.

Examples of these foods include oatmeal, apples without skins, bananas and more.
