No specific dietary changes are proved to reduce your risk of gout. However, it may make sense to eat foods that contain fewer purines. If you want to try a gout diet, try to:
Cut back on the amount of red meat and seafood you eat.
Avoid alcoholic beverages.
Eat more low-fat dairy products.
Eat more complex carbohydrates, such as whole-grain breads.
Choose portions that allow you to maintain a healthy weight. Losing weight may decrease uric acid levels in your body. But avoid fasting or rapid weight loss, since doing so may temporarily raise uric acid levels.
