READ your food labels and steer clear of processed/boxed foods as much as possible. Often time, high-fructose corn syrup is the top ingredient. AVOID!! Avoid substitute sugars such as aspartame, sucrolose/splenda, saccharin, Acesulfame-K. Each is full of undesirable side effects and cancer-causing agents. Do your homework, they are pure poison!! Should you feel the need to sweeten any of your fresh foods, consider a natural sweetener such as Stevia.
Fructose increases uric acid through a complex process that causes cells to burn up their ATP rapidly, leading to "cell shock" and increased cell death (remember 70% of uric acid production comes from the death of your cells!) After eating excessive amounts of fructose, cells become starved of energy and enter a state of shock, just as if they have lost their blood supply. Massive cellular die-off leads to increased uric acid levels.
HCFS, or High Fructose Corn Syrup, is lurking in almost every processed food imaginable. According to Dr. Hyon Choi and colleagues from Boston University, drinking high fructose syrup laden beverages increases uric acid levels in the blood, which eventually deposits into the joints where it causes gout.
One should aim to stay under 25 Grams of total fructose per day. This can add up quickly with processed foods and juices! Avoid your simple carbs as much as possible -- bread, pastry, pasta = sugar. Any sugar you do consume each day should come only/mainly from fruit. See our fructose chart to gain some perspective on how quickly 25mg can add up with just fresh fruit alone:
Grams of Fructose
Date (Deglet Noor style)
1/8 of med. melon
(3.5" x .75")
Grapefruit, pink or red
Grams of Fructose
1/8 of med. melon
1/16 med. melon
Grapes, seedless (green or red)
