In brief: Gout diet
Fruits and vegetables, whole grains, berries, color greens salads.
Avoid high protein diet. Drink 8 glasses of pure water per day. Usually medical treatment is necessary as diet along will not control most of gout problems.

In brief: Consider
Cherries and devils claw have some unproven case reported benefit but need further studies.
Avoidance of high purine diet to include alot of meats and seafoods is your best bet.

Avoid foods high in purines e.g. herring, sardines, organ meats, asparagus. Limit animal proteins (source of purines), meat, fish, poultry to 6 oz or less/day. Increase plant sources of protein, e.g. beans, legumes. Low fat/no fat dairy good, may decrease risk. (16-24oz/d Limit alcohol, simple sugars, starches to decrease overweight. Eat whole grains.. Hydrate, Avoid tight, thin soled shoes

In brief: HF corn syrup
Time to read labels.
Avoid high fructose corn syrup, a cheap sweetener that lurks in lots of processed foods. This may trigger gout too.
