Is it bad to go low carb AND low fat?

I have PCOS so the doctor recommended a low carb, high fat, high protein diet.  It worked nicely. I JUST got a voicemail from my doctor saying that the pain I've been having is most likely from Biliary Colic in my gallbladder caused by too much fat.  He recommends a low fat diet and to see if that helps.  I have to do low carb or I balloon up because of my PCOS, but I can't do low fat too, can I? Stupid diseases! I'm frustrated.

IMO it is.  Protein is the least desirable, the least efficient source of fuel for the body, and what are you going to eat that has protein but is low in carbs AND fat and is healthy?

here are a couple of links that I found interesting.  Notice that a low- or no-fat diet can also cause gallbladder issues:

The kinds of fat you're eating affects your gallbladder's response.   Example:  unrefined coconut oil is fine, but processed fatty foods are not.

The last 3 times I had a gallbladder attack, it was meat that set it off.  Ground beef twice, and then once it was 2 strips of bacon.  I showed my doctor my food log and he was confused.  I eat A LOT of salads, and most of the fat in my diet is meat and nuts.

I think if you go low carb AND low fat that you are going to be hungry. A lot. :-(

Ugh. Yeah.  Well, had my U/S today and they found a huge stone, so they are probably going to just take my gallbladder out, so I won't hav to worry about it.
