This is because if one doesn't produce enough bile to absorb a lot of fat

so if you eat a high fat meal then you can absorb some of it but not a lot

make sense?

but don't you produce the same amount of bile with or without the gallbladder?

Yes, but it constantly leaks into the intestine without a gall bladder

the gall bladder stores a bulk of it then releases it with a fatty meal
