I gained 100 pounds in 3 years and my gallbladder was removed as the solution, but the symptoms are the same and I'm still gaining weight although I don't eat the amount of food to justify. I am currently seeing a nutritionist (since April) who says do NOT eat any above-ground vegetables and sustain a diet of 40% carbs, 30% protein, & 30% fat. Nothing has changed except that I have gained 12 more pounds since following her guidelines. All sources online say to eat fermented foods, but she says no. Anyone out there with any advice?

  • First stop nutritionist She cannot diagnose medical condition.2 find new Primary Dr.(appears to me the one you have seems clueless and is ignoring some symptoms.Really would like to know more about the problems you have going on at present time.How many times does this happen say in a month? Are any foods that was the same for each episode.How was the food prepared?Try keeping food activity/symptom lists you may pinpoint the problems.get tested for "gastroparesis".It caused symptoms you listed
