    Hi

    Not something I've had, however, as soon as I'm told I can't have something I then find I want it. So when diagnosed I was told I had to stick to very low fat foods and then always wanted Chinese or curry or a burger.

    Also it might just be that your body has been used to a certain amount of fat and is almost having withdrawal at that being taken away, if so I'd imagine it would only be for a short time.

    Hopefully someone else may have more infomation for you.

    Yes but what really helps, it's drinking more water, eat some fruit / salad every 2 or 3hrs. In between a healthy dinner, good luck and I hope this helps a little.

      Thankyou but eat plenty fruit and veg and drink plenty water.

      Have had replies from people experiencing same.  Carbs seem to be the thing. Your input always welcome.

    I noticed this kind of unending hungry feeling months before things got bad enought to diagnose a gallstone. I had no idea what was going on. I still didn't know until reading on this site that other people had the same thing. I guess everyone's food and stomach issues are different. I personally cannot tolerate eating the "healthy" foods like fruits and vegetables. Makes me terribly sick the next day. I eat carbs. And though I like sweet too, the salty snacks seem to lessen the nausea and the hunger.

      ThankGod someone else has noticed.  I think it's carbs too.  Thought it was my PCOS.  I dont know why this is happening,the craving that is but carbs definitely soothe GB.

      I don't know the "why" of it either. I haven't found anything that addresses that issue. But it must have to do with the bile that is supposed to help in digestion. If things aren't working correctly maybe the triggers that tell us either we are full or that we need to eat are all mixed up. One thing for me though, is that 30 yrs ago when I had an ulcer I couldn't eat green salads, or fresh vegetables or fresh fruit. I remembered all that with this gallbladder problem. So, I don't feel as bad if I eat mild things. Potatoes, white rice, eggs, bananas, yogurt, white bread, etc. All the things that are easily broken down.
