In brief: Best proteins, carbs

To prevent gout recurrence, work toward ideal weight.
And replace refined (white) carbs with complex carbs (whole grains/veggies). Stop sodas and drinks or foods with added fructose. Decrease beer (especially) and distilled alcohol (some wine ok). For protein decrease meat & others with saturated fats. Increase protein from low fat dairy and plant sources. For some people fatty meals cause flares.

He could add a vitamin C supplement. His doctor would be the best person to ask for advice.

In brief: Gout and diet

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
