Bile is used in the digestive process to break up and help digest the saturated fat.
The gallbladder has muscular walls that contract and squeezes out the bile when saturated fat is present.
A low-fat high-carb diet contains little saturated fat. This means that the gallbladder cannot do its job to contract its muscle walls to secrete bile into the digestive system. When the gallbladder is not used, the bile that is stored continues to concentrate and eventually crystalizes to form stones.
Diets that increase the risk of getting gallstones are:
• low-fat diets
• whole grains
• carbs, starch, sugar
Evidence of this can be found here: https://gut.bmj.com/content/54/6/823
Evidence shows that low carb high fat & keto diets do not cause gallstones.
Other risks of getting gallstones include
• Women over 40 with high estrogen levels.
• People with high insulin levels.
If you haven't eaten saturated fat for a long time, it is advisable to introduce it gradually to allow the gallbladder to get back into shape.
