The 28-Day Gout Diet Plan
Welcome to my very own book page!
In the summer of 2018, I was approached by a publishing company and asked to author a book on gout. So, after reading (what seemed like) stacks of research articles, I’m proud to announce the arrival of The 28-Day Gout Diet Plan, which is currently available on Amazon.
Gout has long been recognized as a regal disease because kings during the Victorian age seemed to be afflicted with it the most. Cartoonists have satirically portrayed said overweight rulers sitting on their thrones with an elevated leg and a bandaged, throbbing toe!
Gout is a part of the arthritis family because it affects joints and can cause severe, debilitating pain. The big difference between gout and the other arthritic diseases is that gout doesn’t worsen. Let untreated, it can cause a lot of damage to organs in the body but it doesn’t cause the whittling away at the bone like a degenerative arthritis can.
Traditionally, a low purine diet has been administered to control gout but thankfully science has now shown us that there are better diet therapies to help control gout. Research supports that a gout-friendly diet plays a significant role in reducing painful flares for long-term treatment. The book removes the guesswork out of what to eat when you have gout and provides research-based meal plans with lots of DASH/heart and kidney-friendly recipes. It’s a guide to eating well that helps you take control of gout for long-term relief, while achieving optimal health.
Since the book has come out, I was interviewed by a freelance journalist for an article she was writing for the South China Morning Post so I thought I would share it with you. How cool to be quoted globally!
The 28-Day Gout Diet Plan includes:
An essential introduction to understanding gout and which foods help reduce flares.
4-week meal plan that maps out weekly meals and provides shopping lists, prep tips, and
75 recipes for gout-sensitive meals that are also DASH and Heart Healthy.
I hope you enjoy the book!
