The gall bladder: The Fat Sack - The most misinterpreted ingredient/organ/macro nutrient?

  • The Gall bladder stores Bile.

  • Frequent and prolonged intake of fatty foods, would result in excessive concentration and hardening of bile juice resulting in the formation of gallbladder stones.

  • A low fat diet increases the formation of stones.

  • If you don’t have one then you have nowhere to store bile.

  • Bile is the only pure substance in the body.

  • Bile is considered responsible for a person’s ability to make decisions.

  • People with gall bladder issues can be highly irritable.

The bitter truth:

Fat is everywhere, it is talked about debated about, cried about, worried about, and desired about. The crème de la crème of the macro-nutrients. Fat is the reason why vegetarians /vegans are always hungry or grazing on oats cakes all day trying desperately to get satisfied when really they should just have bacon butty and be done with it! Fat is the macro - nutrient that stops you thinking about food, satiating your hunger hormones allowing you to get on with your day without the constant obsessive thoughts about what to eat next. Being on a diet of sorts is sort of protocol these days. Sucking up the emotional outbursts, the erratic behaviour and the indecisive natures that become par for the course in the search of the body beautiful, when fat is rudely made obsolete.

Often seen as an organ you can live without. Organs take up valuable estate in your body, they earn their wage by performing certain tasks, and breaking down fat is a big job in my book. Take one organ out and pressure resides elsewhere in the body. Yes, the bile duct can be attached to the small intestines but that doesn’t make it an effective and efficient plumbing system. Imagine a plumber taping the water pipe to the sink with gaffer tape and crossing your fingers it will all be OK. If you don’t make time to be well then you will have to take time later to be sick. Learn what your body does before you have to learn how to live without it.
