Was gaining about 2 lbs a week and then had gallbladder surgery, still gaining weight. All blood work is normal.

Weight loss is not the goal of a cholecystectomy (gall bladder surgery). To achieve adequate weight loss, one must limit their caloric intake and exercise regularly. People generally require about 2000 calories per day; with extra calories will increasing a person’s weight. For your reference, one pound of body fat is approximately 3500 calories so eating 500 extra calories a day would make you gain 1 lb per week. We generally recommend people who are motivated to lose weight to aim for 1 – 2 hours of aerobic exercise per day.

  3. I have been sick for quite some time with stomach problems and lung problems.
