It’s no secret that saturated fat is calorie-dense (with around nine calories in every gram), and too much of it will inevitably lead to weight gain. Carrying too much extra weight is hard on every part of your body, including your bladder: extra pounds around your abdomen will push against your organs, and that compression is bound to increase feelings of urgency and incontinence. However, not all fat is created equal; some sorts may even help your OAB symptoms. Monounsaturated fats are found in natural oils avocadoes, and nuts, and these compounds can actually help you lose weight, plus they may even soothe the bladder.
