To help prevent a gout attack, avoid these foods:

• Alcohol (beer, red wine)
• Yeast (Baker’s and Brewer’s)
• Certain meats (red meat, processed meat, turkey, goose)
• Organ meats (kidney, liver, sweetbread)
• Shellfish (lobster, crab, shrimp, scallop, mussel)
• Certain fish (anchovy, sardine, herring, mackerel)
• Drinks, such as coffee, cocoa, tea
• Sauces,gravies

• Legumes and vegetables like peas, beans, cauliflower, asparagus, lentils, mushrooms, and spinach. This latter group is is not as "big" a problem as the other factors. While these foods do increase serum uric acid, they do not appear to induce gout flares like the previous foods do.

The most important priorities are to reduce the foods that are rich in purines and are known to induce gout attacks such as red meat and shellfish, as well as alcohol. Also, if there are other co-morbid conditions such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and hyperlipidemia, these need to be attended to.
