I doubt there’s much controversy about exercising in water. I never hurt myself that way. The water holds your weight and slows your movements so your joints are protected.

I’d be more worried about microbes on uncooked food than about anything gout-related. I’ve been sick enough times that I prefer eating well-cooked food when eating out.
I don’t know for a fact that you’re especially vulnerable if you take colchicine for a short while but I would be especially careful with food if I was taking colchicine.

I have no idea how “dairy-free milk” is made.
Everything else is fine as long as you take enough allopurinol. I’d go easy on grapes and other very sweet fruits though.
