Diet plays major role in the prevention and treatment of gout. That being said, keeping a list of the foods you should and shouldn’t eat is important to keep your joints pain-free.
Gout is extremely painful. Luckily, there are a few ways to prevent this horribly painful condition. You can start by avoiding these foods.
Meat And Seafood Are High In Purines…
…and can be the cause of excessive uric acid and result in gout.
So as far as trying to keep up a good gout diet, steer clear from seafood and meat, especially during a flare-up. Meat and seafood are rich in purines and once it enters our body, it is then broken down into uric acid.
When your gout is at bay, you have a little more freedom in your food choices. But to be safe, it would be best to keep your seafood and meat intake to a minimum. While these meat and seafood, in general, are prohibited, salmon and scallops are okay for an occasional indulgence.
Herring: Proceed With Caution
sufferers strugglers are allowed to indulge on some types of seafood, there are other foods to avoid with gout and should be completely taken off the menu. Herring, anchovies and tuna are just some of the best examples.
Beer…Sorry But This Bud’s NOT For You…
This might be a bit of a problem for some folks. Unfortunately, beer is a double-whammy for people with gout. Not only does it increase your uric acid level, it also makes it harder for the body to eliminate uric acid from your system.
While wine is a better option, heavy drinking is discouraged. During a flare, most doctors would recommend that you stay away from alcoholic beverages entirely.

Just to let you know, and I was surprized how quick you answered my Email. I meant to Thank You, in the last email. 4 Days ago I could hardly walk, and Thanks to you I’am walking, without any Medication. I did do another treatment, but I’am still a little sore in my toe and ankle. And now little in both wrists, which I did not have yesterday.Just wondering what I sould do now? I’am going out today, to pick some of the ingredients today.

Red Meat Is Not All Bad
When it comes to purine content, all meat is not created equal. Generally, white meat is better than red meat. But gout-sufferers are allowed to eat some types of red meat once in a while.
Rather than turkey or lamb, you are a bit better off if your occasional indulgence is pork or beef. Lamb chops are also a better choice than leg meat.
Turkey Can Be Higher In Purines Than Other Meat Sources
Turkey and goose contains a significantly high amount of purine as compared to other types of food. That being said, it would be best to avoid them. Gout-prone folks should also avoid eating these foods as much as possible.
Duck and chicken are the safest choice. However, you should refrain from eating leg meat and skin.
☆ Bottom-line: Most meats are high purine foods and you should be careful with them – but don’t completely discount them because there are a lot of important nutrients that we can get from no other sources.
SHARE THE LOVE!

Bert Middleton, The Original Gout Killer
“I know your pain. Let me help you kill your gout for good! And teach you to advocate for yourself and take ownership of your gout recovery, by showing you how to live the gout-free lifestyle.”
Two decades ago, Bert Middleton found himself diagnosed with gout. Like 8.3 million other people in the United States (approximately 4% of the population), he struggled helplessly with the physical, emotional, social, and financial impact that gout left unchecked can have on your life.
Prescription drugs were of limited help…
And the terrible pain of regular gout attacks left him unable to enjoy even the simplest daily pleasures. His marriage was suffering. His finances were spiraling due to the impact gout had on his ability to work. And maintaining a social life was often nearly impossible.
Tophi surgeries left him in terrible pain. And he found himself depressed … and angry … that gout was stealing years of his life.
Until one day, after hundreds of hours of research and self-experimentation, Bert finally had a breakthrough and created a blueprint for a way of living that would prove to be “the answer” to living gout-free for nearly a decade now.
Today, Bert and his “Gout Wife” Sharon devote their evenings and weekends to educating other gout sufferers on how to live the gout-free lifestyle via their website TheGoutKiller.com
Showing others his 911 Emergency Response Gout Recovery Plan for getting PAINFUL gout attacks under control in as little as 4 hours.
And then, how to make daily choices that keep gout under control for GOOD!
So you can finally start LIVING again!
