Today we’re going to talk about fasting and gallstones. Gallstones are created from having a super concentrated amount of cholesterol with low amounts of bile. Bile breaks down cholesterol. If you don’t have enough bile, then you could have a formation of cholesterol that can crystalize into stones. 

During a study involving 9 healthy women, researchers extracted bile from the women at different times while they were fasting. They were looking at the saturation index—the more saturated, the higher the risk of a gallstone. 

They found significantly greater saturation at 15 hours of fasting compared to 10 hours. But, at 20 hours of fasting, it reverted. 

There were also a few more important points mentioned in this study:

1. It looked like the gallbladder stopped concentrating at a certain point when the person is fasting. 

2. There might be some emptying of the gallbladder during a fast, replaced with a less concentrated amount of bile. 

In this study, the diet that the women were on included about 95g of carbs. But, with the keto diet, it may be best to stay around 20-50g of carbs, which could potentially make a difference.
