Today it has been 6 months, no attacks, and my last Uric acid test was low. Low carb seems to be doing the trick. I am still waiting to just have a horrible attack one day, buthasn't happened. Kidney beans, cheese, mushrooms, or lots of meat seem to be no problem. What does it for me is pop, sweets.. basically sugar. I have not even had to be real strict on the food, as long as it is not pop or sweets. I gained 43 lbs over the summer, after losing 145, and just got strict again on the 1st, and have lost 12.6 again in the last 20 days.
I have been exercising 90-150 minutes a day, even during weight gain, so hoping to get back to 220 by Halloween, but with better fitness. No gout issues helps with that, since I can walk.
