Gout - Need nutritional information

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Hi all,
My Boyfriend recently found put he has Gout.
We've done some research on this and most of the information available tells us the causes, symptoms and a lot of foods that he should not eat.
Unfortunately it's been very difficult locating any useful information about foods that he SHOULD be eating.
At the moment, he has cut out all forms of meat apart form chicken from his diet and is eating a lot more salads, which makes for a quite limited range. More worrying though is the afact that we don't really know what he sould be eating what to cut down on and wha tto cut out completely.

He's a reasonably fit 35 year old (goes to the gym about 5days a week) and 'cos he used to build, he is quite aware of what he eats ie he's always eaten reasonably (apart from the odd week where he pigs out on Indian and Chinese takeaways). He is quite partial to is Guiness though (although that has been cut down reasonably -couldn't quite get him off that!)

Anyway that's the long and short of it, any help with this will be most apppreciated.
