The gout foods table for snacks covers key foods in the Snacks group from the USDA food database.
My gout foods tables are based on a serving size that provides 100 calories (Kcals) of energy. This is different from most earlier food tables on GoutPal. I explain why in my gout foods table introduction, where you can learn all about these tables. If you are new to my gout foods tables, it is very important that you read that introduction, and understand what these tables are about.
Snacks should never form a major part of your diet. I even toyed with the idea of reducing the calorie size for this table. However, this would make the comparison with other tables impossible. What you must never do is miss snacks from your total daily intake summary. I believe that, used wisely, snacks can play a big part in helping you achieve the diet you want. However, snacks only help if you control them, not let them control you.
Your best way to manage snacks is:
- Count every calorie
- Always keep healthy snacks such as fruit and whole foods to hand
- Plan a snack time between meals, but do not treat it as an absolute necessity
- Stop work or play when you are snacking. If you eat when you are doing something else, you tend to eat more.
