So I suddenly found myself without a gallbladder. It was a messy surgery, the damn thing was badly infected, so it'll take a few weeks to recover. But now I wonder how lack of the gallbladder and strict low fat diet affected others.
It may actually be a change for the better. I was never a big fan of fatty foods anyway and I was able to lose a nice chunk of fat this Summer by watching my diet. However, I really had hard time giving up pastries and chocolate chip cookies. Now they'll be pretty much absent from my diet. Now, I will need to watch my diet, whether I like it or not. So perhaps I could turn this into an advantage?
I still plan to do some long tours in 2013, maybe even TransAm, but I'm not going to travel internationally so all my cycling will be done in USA and maybe Canada.
Does anyone have a story to share? Tips? Anecdotes?
I'm not even sure yet if Clifbars are OK
