I'm sure glad u do a lot of exercise that is wonderful. I have gout as well, and boy at Thanksgiving, Christmas and last week when I ate HAM it flared up in my foot something awful. I follow Dr. Mercola's web site as he is a medical doctor that has a lot of help. He recommends a low carb diet. Also, I have read Richard Bernstein's "The Diabetes Solution" and he has a lot of help with Insulin Resistance. He says ALL obese people have Insulin Resistance and can do well taking Metformin for weight loss. He has lectures on YouTube.
RUSSELL_39 is a good guy to have for a Spark Pal. I'll send you over his way.

Hi, my name is Jim. I am a 62 year old man that has exercised most of my life. I always struggle with my weight. I have been sick for a couple of days and lost a couple of pounds because of that. My problem with food is mostly portion control and I like to snack. A lot of times I eat after 8:00 PM mostly cheese crackers with peanut butter and an apple. I exercise 5 to 6 times a week combining strength exercises and exercise bike. I don't stretch as much as I should. I became a diabetic in 2011. I had many injuries in my life especially since I became a nurse which I am now retired from. I have developed arthritis in my back, shoulders, hip, knee and have gouty arthritis in the left foot with plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. So I am always in pain. I could use an online partner to help me with my routines and encourage me with my diet. Right now I got to go, so I will let you know more later.
