Hi there,

Eat smaller, more frequent meals to ensure a better mix with available bile. Take small amounts of lean protein, such as poultry, fish and nonfat dairy, at every meal, along with vegetables, fruit and whole grains.
Avoid high-fat foods, fried and greasy foods, and fatty sauces and gravies. Opt for nonfat or low-fat foods. Read labels and look for foods with 3 grams of fat or less a serving.
Slowly increase the fiber in your diet over a period of weeks. This can help normalize bowel movements by reducing incidents of diarrhea or constipation. However, it can also make gas and cramping worse.
