First post for me. I am wondering if there are any gout suffers in the community. I have just finished my first week of Fast 800 and am happy to report that I lost around 3kgs but it came with a bout of gout!
It seems that the act of switching from a normal carb diet to a low carb diet actually spikes the purines in your body and can result in a an attack! I am not saying that it is not worth the results but it is something to be careful of. Seems that mediterranean diet is actually very good for gout as is losing weight.
From my Googling, it seems that the act of switching is the problem so if you stay low carb then fine but if you revert back and forward – pow.
Interested in any other experiences out there.
