Foods high in purines... Red meat, herring, organ foods, asparagus, hot dogs, beer. Then get the gout managed medically by a professional.

Avoid meats and most importantly, avoid organ meats; fatty meats and alcohol are doubly potent against gout. Avoid these. Also, if you are able, drink at least 3 liters fluid per day - this may enhance uric acid excretion - and if you incline your diet successfully to mostly whole grain, fruit, and veggies, using egg white for protein, then your uric acid levels will come down even more
