Hi,

A few commendts…

There are limits to what you can accomplish with diet.
Even if some day you end up gout-free without meds (it’s not a given that it’s even possible), that would take time. Doing without meds in the meantime will cause extra suffering.

Having more frequent gout symptoms can be a sign of improvement. And rapid weight loss can temporarily make gout worse.
So doing the right thing doesn’t mean you’ll feel better immediately.

Your diet puts you at risk of malnutrition and protein deficiency in particular.
Your diet should be more varied and contain more vegetables. I also recommend you make at least one of the two following changes:
-eat/drink a lot more dairy
-add generous servings of the lentils/beans type of plant to your diet and refrain from excessively restricting the cereal servings (rice, bread and so forth)
