Hi all,
   I know some of you know quite a bit about these things, so I'll ask you.........
Why sometimes do high fat foods just sit in our stomachs and not go anywhere?    Is there something about fat that shuts things down (even if your gall bladder is working well)?
   When this happens, does it mean there's dysfunction, or is it a pretty common reaction even in usually healthy people?
   Are there any tricks to move it along when it seems to shut down?
   Is this what "gastroparesis" is?  Are there any natural ways to avoid it?   Does fat bring it on?  Does caffeine bring it on?  Thanks!

I have found that it depends on the fat, a lot of times. I have very little problem with dairy fat, for instance, unless I eat an entire 1/2 gallon of ice cream in a weekend; then I have a bit of D. But just one deep-fried chicken sandwich may mess me up for several days. In general, I try to limit my fats to good fats and avoid all of the bad fats. Saturated fats from meat and dairy are okay for me, so long as they're not coupled with trans-fats; you know, the worst of the worst. Some people can't seem to tolerate dairy, but that seems more connected with a lactose problem than a fat problem.
