GoutPal Plan for Gout Foodies
The 7 step GoutPal Plan for Gout Foodies is:
Remember, most GoutPal Plans are concerned with different aspects of lowering uric acid. Gout Foodies are focused on food. But, you also know that you have to lower uric acid to control gout. If you are not interested in uric acid control, you should move to GoutPal Plan for Gout Victims.
- 1. Personal Goals.
- What do you want to achieve? Make this as personal as you can. It might be playing with your grandkids in the park. Or, enjoying a family celebration. The more personal it is to you, the easier it is to stay motivated. If you want to start a plan today, tell me your personal gout goals in the forums.
- 2. Gout Foodies Plan Objectives.
- Do you want to spend a few months adopting healthy eating habits? Or, do you want to try temporary medical treatment now? Each day you fail to control uric acid, is a day that your gout gets worse. Instead of enduring increasing pain now, you might consider a temporary uric acid lowering treatment plan. That can buy you time to improve your diet later. If you want to do this, please see the GoutPal Plan for Gout Patients.)
- 3. Your Gout Foodies Undertaking.
- If you are determined to start using food to control your gout, you must create a healthy foundation. You cannot create a good gout diet on a foundation of bad eating habits. I can help you improve your eating habits to start controlling gout. First, you must undertake to follow a healthy eating plan. Select Mediterranean, vegetarian, alkaline, or some other healthy eating style. If you’re not sure where to start, ask in the gout forums. You should share what you currently eat, and how you would like to change.
- 4. Tests for Gout Foodies.
- Now is a good time to start your Personal Gout Diary. Keep records of weight, BMI, and exercise, as well as your uric acid blood test results. Particularly useful for Gout Foodies, is the EFSEP test. See the EFSEP test for Gout Foodies.
- 5. Personal Gout Foodie Plans.
- Here’s where it gets really personal. Healthy eating plans just for you. There are two types of plan. Either:
1. Tell me what you eat each day , and I’ll give guidance on how you could improve your diet for gout. Or…
2. Tell me the eating style you chose, and some personal details, including favorite foods, and foods you don’t like. Then, I’ll give you a healthy eating plan.
- 6. Assess improvements
- If your uric acid isn’t under control, do you want to continue as a Gout Foodie, or try a different group? If you want to keep trying, we go back to the Plans, or Undertaking. Then, we Assess where we can improve them.
- 7. Life after gout.
- If your gout is under control, it’s time to enjoy the rest of your life. Please consider helping other sufferers in the gout forums. Your experiences can encourage struggling gout sufferers to control their gout.
