In brief: Low-Fat

The most common biliary tract problem is gallbladder disease.
Fatty foods tend to precipitate gallbladder attacks because fat in the stomach releases a hormone, cholecystokinin, that stimulates gallbladder contraction. Of course, not everybody "follows the book": some people will get attacks after eating any food or even when fasting. This problem is easily solved by surgery, though.
