Houston, Texas, Dec 13, 2021 /prREACH/ -- As someone with gout himself, founder of Gout and You, Spiro Koulouris, understands the important role diet plays in managing the painful symptoms of gout. Since 2013, he has been developing his ideal gout diet and is ready to reveal it to the public. The diet plan focuses on controlling uric acid levels and helps people with gout stay fit, healthy, and active.
The full diet plan can be found at https://goutandyou.com/gout-diet/.
The heart of the plan is to organize daily food intake around a simple ratio of 80-10-10. “Try eating 80% of your daily calories as complex carbohydrates such as fresh vegetables, legumes, some fruit, 100% whole grain bread, pasta and rice," Koulouris advises. "Eat mostly beans for protein. 10% of your daily calories can be from protein, such as chicken breast, turkey, fish, lean red beef and lamb. Avoid pork, processed meats like sausages and hot dogs, avoid all seafood as well like lobster, shrimp and crab for example.”
He recommends that the final 10% of a gout patient’s daily calories come from fat, such as milk, cheese, yogurt, butter, eggs, and similar products. Additionally, he advises them to drink only water, herbal teas and coffee as beverages.
Koulouris suggests strictly avoiding processed foods like snack bars, cookies, cereals, and the likes. He instructs those with gout to never fry their food but only boil it or bake it in the oven. “BBQ meat is fine too. Cook only with 100% extra virgin olive oil. Do not use corn oil, vegetable oil, canola or other types of oils that are toxic to your health,” he says.
He advocates the Mediterranean diet as an alternative to control uric acid levels since it promotes the primary consumption of complex carbohydrates, such as fresh vegetables, fruits, and 100% whole grains. A second alternative is the vegetarian diet, which works the same way.
