A low Purine Diet Will help those suffering from gout avoid atacks. Here is a list of some of the foods that are high in purines. These foods have the highest concentration of purines and should therefore be avoided by people that are prone to or are already suffering from gout.
Beef, Pork, Bacon, Lamb, Seafood, Foods that are made with yeast like beer or bread, Alcoholic beverages
These foods, while high in purine levels that can aggravate the symptoms of gout can be had occasionally by those who usually follow a low purine diet.
Asparagus, Cauliflower, Mushrooms, Peas, Spinach, Whole grain breads and cereals, White poultry meats, like chicken, duck or turkey, Kidney and lima beans.
The following foods are safe to eat in a low purine diet; however these should not be the only food you eat.
Green vegetables and tomatoes, Fruits and fruit juices, Breads that do not use yeast (may be found in the kosher section or a health food store), Nuts, Milk and milk products such as butter and cheese, Chocolate, Coffee and tea. food to AVOID when you have gout :

all meat, esparragus, coliflower, spinach, fish especially oily fish like anchovies and shell fish, alcohol, oats, legumes, sugary food.

You CAN eat:

dairy products, eggs, potato, pasta, all vegatales but the above, rice, fruit (limit to 2 portions a day).

An infusion of rosemary tea is very soothing. (1 litre a day)
1. Lemon Juice
Gout is a build up of too much acid in the body. Therefore the body's pH level must be neutralized by adding alkaline to the body. This is best achieved by drinking the juice of a fresh lemon. Lemons are 20% acid, 80% alkaline. I just take the juice of a whole lemon, mix it with warm water in a tumbler and down it through a straw. Doing this first thing in the morning on a empty stomach also helps cleanse the kidneys which is linked to other gout related problems.

2. Cherries Prior to taking lemon juice every day, if I felt a gout attack coming on, I would go and buy a kilo of cherries and gradually munch on them for a few hours. Cherries are a natural anti-inflammatory.
3. Diet and Exercise
While the first two points are excellent treatments, a healthy balanced diet and exercising 3 times a week for 45 minutes is core to preventing gout from occurring in the first place.
Fad diets are rubbish. Dieting is pretty simple. It's pretty obvious what's healthy and not:
Things that grow out the ground and that are natural = good. Things in colourful packets with loads of e-numbers and weird looking animations promoting them = bad. Moderation is the key. High Purine Foods that should be avoided Beer, anchovies, organ meat (brains, kidney, liver, sweetbreads), game meats, gravies, yeast, meat extracts, sardines, herring, mackerel, scallops. Medium Purine Foods that may be eaten in Moderation Fresh and saltwater fish, shellfish, eel, meat, poultry, meat soups and broth, asparagus , mushrooms, cauliflower, spinach, legumes, oatmeal, bran, wheat germ, whole-grain breads and cereals, eggs. Low Purine Foods eat as much as you like (within reason). Breads and cereals (low-fiber, white flour, or refined grain types), nuts, peanut butter. Vegetables not high in purines, soups - cream style or vegetable without meat extract, coffee, tea, fruit juices, soft drinks, gelatin, sugar, low fat cheeses. Foods That are reputed to help relieve the symptoms of gout. Cherry juice or strawberries are said to be helpful. Some chemicals contained in dark berries may help reduce the inflammation and lower the uric acid. Oily fish like salmon, or fatty acids in flax seed or olive oil or nuts may reduce inflammation too. replacing meat with tofu (from soybeans) instead of meat could also be helpful. Some have found relief with OPC3 antioxidant supplement. A balanced diet for gout sufferers includes foods that are high in complex carbohydrates, low in protein and low in fat.

Gout is a disease caused by an excessive amount of uric acid. Now, uric acid is produced by the catabolism of nucleotides that usually exist in cells. So, any food that has cells (animal cells) can make gout worse, like meat, eggs,.... etc

Foods that can lead to uric acid and gout are: anchovies, sardines, herring, mushrooms, gravies, organ meats, and other purine rich foods. Alcohol, especially beer, and coffee should also be avoided.
