Foods to Avoid for Gout - Living a Healthy Life to Avoid Painful Gout Attacks
Gout is a type of arthritis that affects the joints, tendons, and other bodily tissues. Even as the medical condition is more common amongst men over 30, it is also known to develop in women who are post-menopausal or hypertensive. Several risks factors increase the chances of developing gout; therefore living a healthier life-style is crucial. Consequently, the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Disease have recommended a variety of foods to avoid for gout. Gout is the result of high concentration of uric acid in the bloodstream or hyperuricemia. The high levels of uric acid form hard crystals or urates in the joints causing pain and inflammation. More so, chronic gout may lead to a chalky, gritty substance called tophi that lodges in the joints or deposits inside the ears. In even worse cases, the condition can lead to kidney stones. As you can see, if gout is left untreated, it is significantly damaging to major organs and tissues of the ...
8 Foods To Avoid to Stay Healthy (Part 1)
One of the quickest ways to reach optimal health is to know which foods to avoid. By having this information, you’ll automatically begin to choose foods that will provide benefits rather than negative consequences for your health and vitality. Some of these foods may surprise you based on the contradictory information provided by companies who have a vested interest in you buying them.

Additionally, the body only needs a limited supply of glucose to fuel its cells. Therefore, once you’ve reach...
Avoid Liquid Calories to Keep Weight Down and Diabetes Under Control
Earlier studies that I reviewed here indicated that when we take our food in liquid form rather than in a solid one, we consume more calories that day. And now a big new study shows that when we cut back on the amount of liquid calories that we consume, we do lose weight. But, unlike the earlier studies, the new one finds only one liquid culprit: sugar-sweetened beverages. No other type of beverage is associated with a change in weight. This is good news for people with diabetes. More than 85 percent of us are overweight or obese, according to a survey by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Six other beverages tested in the new study had little or no effect on the weight of the participants. They are diet drinks sweetened with artificial sweeteners, milk with four different amounts of fat, 100 percent fruit and vegetable juices, coffee and tea with sugar, coffee and tea without sugar, coffee and tea sweetened with artificial sweeteners, and all sorts of alcoholic b...
