4 Tips to Help You Prevent Gout

There are no cures for taste! The best thing you can do is take steps to prevent gout from happening in the first place. As? Take a good look at the food you eat. Do you know what foods to avoid for taste problems? Do you know what foods are good to help prevent gout? Here are some “food” related tips that can get you started on the right track:

TIP #1:

Avoid foods that cause taste.

This is a no-brainer, but sometimes it’s hard to remember all the different foods to avoid and the reasons why. Here’s a short list that can make a world of difference to your taste experiences. I’m not going to just say “avoid foods high in purines” because the next question would be, “What foods are those?” Here are some of them:

* Organ meats. The online medical dictionary defines organ meat as “Non-meat edible products of animal slaughter. Includes brains, thymus, pancreas, liver, heart, kidney, tripe, sausage casings, tripe, greaves.” It doesn’t sound too appetizing anyway! You never would have thought of the last three items as “organ meat” and you probably wouldn’t even have thought of avoiding them.

*Pates made with organ meats, such as liverwurst, Brunsweiger, liver sausage, and although not exactly a pate, minced chicken livers should be included on this list. (And I make the BEST chopped chicken livers this side of New York!)

* Dark meat of poultry – turkey, chicken, duck


* Red meat

* Processed foods

* Flour

Try to eat more fish, white meat, fresh fruits and vegetables, and research the different types of spices you can cook with that can enhance its flavor, such as burdock root and turmeric.

TIP #2:

Take a look at a bunch of taste photos.

I’m serious! When I was a teenager and thought I needed to “go on a diet,” someone told me, “Put a picture on your refrigerator door of how you look now and another picture of how you want to look.” It was a good deterrent any time I wanted a snack ‘without thinking’.

This simple technique has served me well my entire life. You can use it too. Go online and find some vivid-tasting pictures, print them out (in vivid colors if you can), and stick them on your fridge door. I can guarantee that when you want a quick hot dog on a white refined flour bun, with mustard and sweet sugar-laden pickle relish, you’ll have second thoughts.

TIP #3:

If you eat a lot of cherries, the taste will stay away.

Dr. Ludwig W. Blau accidentally discovered the connection between eating cherries and reducing your taste pain. He was stuck in his wheelchair and the only thing he could find that he wanted to eat was a bowl of fresh cherries. So, he ate them. The next morning he discovered that his bread was much softer.

Fortunately for the rest of us, she was able to relate eating cherries to her pain relief, so she continued to eat several cherries a day. In a short time, he was able to walk again and was no longer confined to his wheelchair.

Their discovery was reported in Prevention Magazine. Blau said the reason he published this discovery was so “could offer a merciful means of relief to hundreds of thousands of American victims suffering the agonizing and painful torture that leads many to consider suicide.”

TIP #4:

If you want to avoid the taste, alcohol must be eliminated from your life!

Okay, I know the research says that a glass of red wine a day… with dinner – It is good for your health. If you stick to just this glass, I’m pretty sure it won’t give you a flavor attack. But this doesn’t give you an excuse to get drunk every night!
