I’m going to be brief because the forum software threw away my reply (that’s what it does when a post is moved).

You shouldn’t starve yourself. It won’t help your gout.
In particular, you need proteins. If you’re avoiding meat you need to eat lots of dairy. That or a combination of bean-type and cereal-type plants.
Even if you’re trying to lose weight, you should do it slowly and sustainably. A diet which would kill you within months if you stuck to is nowhere near sustainable.

It would be best if you could get your uric acid test results in writing. You need to know what your typical level has been since you’ve been taking allopurinol. It would be odd if it really varied between 6.5 and 3.
