Excess weight can make gout symptoms worse by increasing the amount of uric acid your body produces and putting additional stress on joints.
At Livea, our customized weight loss plans are based on a heart-healthy diet pattern focusing on nutrient-dense whole foods and limiting refined carbohydrates and processed foods. The Livea Well: Gout plan includes all food groups, focusing on low-fat dairy, complex carbohydrates from vegetables and whole grains, and proteins from lean meat and plant-based sources.
The Livea Well: Gout weight loss plan works with your body to reduce gout symptoms while reaching your weight loss goals by limiting certain foods high in purines which break down into uric acid and focusing on foods that can potentially decrease uric acid production and increase its elimination. For those with specialized health needs, we always advise you to consult with your health care provider to ensure these recommendations make sense for your specific circumstances.
