Boss, I eat 6 eggs a day plus 1/4 stick of butter, and 1.5 lbs of meat.. 70 % fat, 2,500 + calories, and my cholesterol is 104. Triglycerides always below 100. I just got off my cholesterol pill.
Suzanneyea is a bit extreme..lol, but hearing that a 106 lb woman was eating 2500 calories, while I was eating 1600, losing 5-7 lbs a week, then cheating, let me think, why not just up my fat intake to 70%, and add 1000 calories. My weight loss slowed down, and I no longer am cheating. I have lost 2.4 lbs in 8 days.
It defies current thinking, and you have gout attacks to add to your worries, but I find it weird that I can eat 1.5-2 lbs of meat a day without attacks. We all need to do whatever works for us, but when a blanket statement is made like meat causes gout attacks, or eggs, meat raise cholesterol, I stop and ask why they don't have that effect in me. My belief is that it is because I eat lower carbs.
I really think that it is the combo of fat, and carbs that cause gout. I think fat and protein is not a problem.
