I bought duck fat and warmed up my veggies in it, after 3 hours I had very bad wind from it. I want to add it to my diet to keep my weight up.
I feel that I need good digestive enzymes to digest it as I always had problems with digesting fat.
Can you recommend some brands please?

Do you have problems with coconut oil, butter/ghee, chicken skin etc? Duck fat is almost entirely saturated like those kinds. Are you sure the veggies don’t have anything to do with it? Maybe some antifungals or probiotics you took?
If it is the fat, then it might be lack of bile that’s the problem. If you’ve been on a vegetarian or low-fat diet for a long time, your body won’t be up to the task of digesting large amounts at once. You need to start small and gradually increase to allow it to start producing enough bile.
As for brands, organic or free-range is always preferably with animal products, but otherwise I don’t think it matters.May 27, 2012 at 5:43 am #83168
Yes, I always react to butter/ghee, chicken skin and fatty food. I had this problem from my childhood, I always had nausea and colics from fried and fatty food. I did lots of test and the doctors say that I have very sluggish gall bladder. I have been on low fat diet for long time.
I tried coconut oil 3 times and I felt so bad, my digestion was completely bad a week after the trial. Now I don’t even try It anymore. I hope in the futurebi will be able to have a bit of it.
Should I take ox bile with fatty food? And some digestive enzymes?

I’m not an expert on this stuff, but I doubt enzymes would substitute for bile, which is what you’re lacking if your gallbladder is weak, although perhaps your pancreas would produce less lipase after so long on a low-fat diet too. If you’ve never attempted to build up your fat intake, then it seems like a good idea to try. I think it takes around 4g to stimulate bile production, so you could start with a very small amount and increase in 1-2g increments over time.
If ox bile acts as a substitute then I guess that would be useful, but if it doesn’t encourage your gallbladder to function, it’s not going to be a long-term solution. Maybe you can find more info on Google about boosting your bile production. I think your body will respond given the chance, but there could be other factors involved.May 27, 2012 at 9:59 pm #83215

Thanks guys. I have found that artichoke and dandelion increase bile production. I will try to supplement them in my diet.May 28, 2012 at 5:21 am #83237

I didn’t know that. Careful with the artichoke though, since it has an incredibly high inulin content. It’s important to regularly eat inulin, but it may give you bloating if you eat too much without adjusting your gut flora to onions and leeks and other foods containing inulin in smaller amounts.
