The gallbladder diet (starvation)

Rapid weight loss programs, diet pills, working out at the gym, and Richard Simmons all have NOTHING on the weight loss program I'm currently forced to be on. The I can't eat a damn thing because my gallbladder hurts like hell diet is making me drop some serious pounds! All of my pants are now loose (except the ones I tucked far back into the closet that I wore before Sarah came along...you know, just in case I ever lost the 35 pounds). If I don't wear a belt, they'll fall off. I'm so hungry I'm like a madman if I smell food. Today we went into a Chick-fil-a and I wanted some greasy nuggets SO BAD, but of course I got the chargrilled SALAD with fat free dressing, and it still made me hurt. So then we go to a health foods store and I find some tablets that are supposed to break up gallstones. I buy them, come home, and take two. Now I'm basically in agony that is masked by two percocets. Had I not had those, I'd probably be right back in the ER, which is completely ironic because I have to be there at 6:45 AM anyway to work 11 hours. My life sucks! I have no health insurance and I cannot have surgery on this damn gallbladder that is giving me fits. The only plus to this that I can see is that I am finally losing some weight. Starvation, however, is not how I would have chosen to do it. I'm drinking Shaklee Cinch shakes which are good, don't hurt, and have lots of vitamins, BUT it's not enough. I'm still hungry because there is very little else I can eat. And you'd think for the thousands I'm going to wind up paying for last week's ER visit, the doc could have at least given me a diet cheat sheet. Foods to avoid? I am awake and hurting and wanted to tell the world how utterly miserable I am.
Don't let this happen to you. Don't eat anything with cholesterol, because that is the foundation of gallstones.

Heather-
When i had my tonsils out and couldn't eat a thing the only thing that tasted good and gave me plenty of nutrients was Ensure. I know it's an old man's food, but it totally worked and gave me energy. drink the vanilla shake flavor and drink it really really cold! hope you feel better soon!
