None: None will help. Diet is worthless in treating gout although there is some data that cherry juice can reduce the frequency of attacks. You really need to be on Allopurinol to prevent future attacks and to prevent more serious problems from gout such as joint damage, kidney stones or compromise of kidney function.

See below: Cherry juice has been known to be help[ful. Avoid eshell fish, nuts, alcohol, sardines and red meats since these foods can often exaserbate an attack.

Studies have shown that diets have little effect on serum uric acid levels or in precipitating attacks.nthe one exception is alcohol. Cherries have no value in treating the acute attack.
