Weight Loss With Less Risk of Gallstones

You can take several measures to decrease the risk of developing gallstones during weight loss.

1. Lose Weight Gradually

Losing weight gradually, instead of losing a large amount of weight quickly, lowers your risk. Experts recommend losing 1 to 2 pounds per week.

2. Aim For Modest Weight Loss Goal

You can also decrease the risk of gallstones associated with weight cycling by aiming for a modest weight loss that you can maintain. Even a loss of 10 percent of body weight over a period of 6 months or more can improve the health of an adult who is overweight or obese.

3. Make Better Food Choices

Your food choices can also affect your gallstone risk. Experts recommend including some fat in your diet to stimulate gallbladder contracting and emptying. However, no more than 30 percent of your total calories should come from fat.

Studies have also shown that diets high in fiber and calcium may reduce the risk of gallstone development.

A diet comprising of high fiber such as found in a vegetarian diet has been shown to offer a protective factor against gallstone formation.

4. Take Regular Physical Exercise

Finally, regular physical activity is related to a lower risk for gallstones. According to research, increased intake of both soluble and insoluble fiber, which includes vegetables, nuts, pectin has been found to decrease the formation of deoxycholic, which increases the solubility of cholesterol, by promoting its excretion through faeces.
