Of course! but you might wanna make sure and wait for another person here to confirm it as I am on the fence. Better yet, why don't you give a call to the Medifast guys because they can give you help better...

You're getting to many aminos. Back off and slow down with the protein. I don't ever worry about getting 90 grams nut I also don't gave hair. FYI back down just a bit and find what YOURE body needs. Obviously you're over doing amino acids..

I don't know shit but I do know that!.

This is your life, your journey, your pouch, and YOU must find your balance!.

These things! I had a friend that had gout. I remember him flaring up often. He also had Renal Issues and couldn't take.

Allopurinol.

, but.

Aleve.

Did actually help when it did flare. I copied the list below from a website for you..

Limit animal protein..

Avoid.

Or severely limit high-purine foods, including organ meats, such as liver, and herring, anchovies and mackerel. Red meat (beef, pork and lamb), fatty fish and seafood (tuna, shrimp, lobster and scallops) are associated with increased risk of gout. Because all animal protein contains purines, limit your intake to 4 to 6 ounces (113 to 170 grams) daily..

Eat more plant-based proteins. You can increase your protein by including more plant-based sources, such as beans and legumes. This switch will also help you cut down on saturated fats, which may indirectly contribute to obesity and gout..

Limit or.

Avoid.

Alcohol. Alcohol interferes with the elimination of uric acid from your body. Drinking beer, in particular, has been linked to gout attacks. If you're having an attack,.

Avoid.

Alcohol. However, when you're not having an attack, drinking one or two 5-ounce (148 milliliter) servings a day of wine is not likely to increase your risk..

Drink plenty of fluids, particularly water. Fluids can help remove uric acid from your body. Aim for eight to 16 8-ounce (237 milliliter) glasses a day..

Choose low-fat or fat-free dairy products. Some studies have shown that drinking skim or low-fat milk and eating foods made with them, such as yogurt, help reduce the risk of gout. Aim for adequate dairy intake of 16 to 24 fluid ounces (473 to 710 milliliters) daily..

Choose complex carbohydrates. Eat more whole grains and fruits and vegetables and fewer refined carbohydrates, such as white bread, cakes and candy..

Limit or.

Avoid.

Sugar. Too many sweets can.

Leave.

You with no room for plant-based proteins and low-fat or fat-free dairy products the foods you need to.

Avoid.

Gout. Sugary foods also tend to be high in calories, so they make it easier to eat more than you're likely to burn off. Although there's debate about whether sugar has a direct effect on uric acid levels, sweets are definitely linked to overweight and obesity..

Good Luck...
