Gout diet

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.
