Atkins Diet Misconceptions: Low Carb Diets and Gout

In a reaction to a Tv episode on the demonstrate Royal Pains, I analyze the claims that a large fat diet regime will automatically lead to the ache associated with gout and gout attacks. The standard wisdom looks typically analogous to common, but incorrect cholesterol theorem that dietary cholesterol leads to enhanced cholesterol in the blood. Is the well-liked theory proper? What is Gout? Gout is a sort of arthritis that occurs when abnormally higher levels of uric acid develop up in the entire body, leading to crystals to form in joints. The crystals cause sudden, significant attacks of joint soreness and swelling. Uric acid is a substance that is usually launched by the kidneys when the body breaks down waste goods known as purines. When the kidneys are no extended in a position to flush uric acid out of the physique appropriately, it crystallizes and accumulates all around the joints.

http// We just place out a video clip exhibiting you the benefits of employing Metamucil fiber in our Saturday Early morning Diet program. Metamucil® is different than distinct-mixing fiber supplements, because it has psyllium fiber. We blended the two Metamucil and the major obvious-mixing fiber, containing wheat dextrin, with the suggested amounts of water. We then additional cooking oil, dyed red, to each, to symbolize cholesterol. The psyllium fiber located in Metamucil gels and traps the oil like a sponge. The apparent-mixing fiber does not. That is how Metamucil functions in your body. As the psyllium fiber enters your stomach, it forms a gel that traps and will help gently take away waste and some cholesterol. Apparent-mixing fibers, like wheat dextrin, never function like this. Evaluate fibers today, and decide on the fiber health supplement that gels, traps, and will help remove—Metamucil. It is various due to the fact it gels. It can be Metamucil.

    @auggiedoggy No reread what I wrote and the video description. The efficacy of limiting the high purine foods has proven ineffectual to limiting gout. If eating the foods does not give you gout and not eating the foods does not alleviate gout, what is the problem of eating these foods? Many doctors have given up the low purine dietary response to a gout diagnosis.

    Again, you misunderstand what I wrote. You have the impression that only foods Atkins followers eat are meat.

  • auggiedoggy:

    @bowulf : I know that if you cut out the very high purine foods and only occasionally eat the moderate purine foods, which is what is being recommended, then it doesn’t leave much. Most all of the meats that people eat on Atkins are in the medium purine group. Low purine foods consist of dairy and plant foods. Even many legumes such as kidney beans, lentils, white beans, etc. are foods that health professionals tell us to cut back on. Yes that includes soy!

  • auggiedoggy:

    @bowulf : Please re-read what I said above. I said people WITH gout are told to eliminate high purine foods and cut back on medium purine foods. I did not say a person that doesn’t have gout will necessarily get gout on the Atkins diet. My point, which you obviously missed, was that this diet would be disasterous for a person that has gout.

  • bowulf:

    @auggiedoggy “The only other foods you have are dairy foods which are low purine foods. ”

    It is obvious you have no clue what foods are allowed on the Atkins Diet. Read the video description, and you ‘ll see what alkaline foods are allowed on the Atkins Diet. That still however does not eliminate the original point that the purine content of one’s food does not equal a high uric acid in one’s blood.

  • bowulf:

    @auggiedoggy Repeating what I said in the video description does not prove your point. Your point should be that eating purine foods leads to gout, and the fact is for most people without a genetic predisposition to gout it does not. In fact manipulating the purine content of one’s diet has “a negligible effect on uric acid levels.” The link between purine foods and uric acid in the blood is as dubious as the link between dietary cholesterol and one’s lipid panels.

  • auggiedoggy:

    Beef, chicken, pork, turkey, etc are considered medium purine foods foods but people with gout are told to limit these foods. High purine foods like all organs meats and sardines, etc, should be avoided completely. If you eliminate the high purine foods and follow the standard recommendation to limit the medium purine foods you really have little left if you want to follow an Atkins diet. The only other foods you have are dairy foods which are low purine foods.

  • bowulf:

    @redrose971 Like I mentioned there are some people genetically predisposed to gout, and no matter the diet will likely have to be cautions with certain foods. As for magic foods, I was fortunate to find the diet that enabled me to lose at all after years of failing. While it was 4.2 pounds per week, the fact the weight left at all was the “magic” or the blessing part.

  • redrose971:

    i did Atkins and i got gout. and the pain is murder.I’m still on a diet but i just eat less of everything,my gout has gone and im losing about 2pounds a week.also drink alot of water.simple as that, really.There are no magic foods that make you lose fat faster.

  • bowulf:

    @tazlmc That is a great validation of the lifestyle or way of eating. I appreciate the feedback from someone who lived it.

  • tazlmc:

    I suffered quite a bit from gout, and yes it is very painful. But since starting my low carb lifestyle surprisingly enough i have not had 1 attack. proof enough for me.

  • X2hedX:

    Uric acid is a -4 break down of ADP. ATP and ADP are obviously came from Carbohydrates. No one can really ingest a high amount of meat or protein and fat that provides a good source of Creatine neither. Also providing ATP to the ADP cycle.

    @79siggy Yeah, their bodies don’t process the excess protein from the blood like they once did. Just another reason for them to reverse the metabolic disorder by choosing a controlled or low carb lifestyle.

  • bowulf:

    @BigJohnIsOn Replace the meat portion of the diet with beans (kidney, soy, lentils of other flavor) and spinach. They all feature a good amount of proteins. Replace the fat of the meat with a large amount of vegetable oils like olive.

    The problem with the study you spoke of is that no one in the study actually followed any sort of low carb diets or vegetarian diets. They all had completely mixed diets and as such any conclusions are dubious.

  • BigJohnIsOn:

    How would one eat a “low-carb diet high in plant-based protein”? The question comes to me after reading a (non-causal) study report just released by the Annals of Internal Medicine.

    @enisorian Humor her until you take the lighter or other incendiary things away from her.

  • enisorian:

    Help Kent. My sister is a vegan and just burned a copy of the Atkins Diet in protest. What should I do?

  • bowulf:

    @jadeisback That is one of the things I find funny about the criticism. They are criticizing a diet that is an effective treatment for the ailment they prescribe to it. Glad to hear your sister is doing so well with it.

  • jadeisback:

    My sis has gout.. However her doc suggested that she follow a low carb diet because eliminating sugar decreases the pain when they have episodes of gout.. Since last year fewer episodes and 40lbs lighter..

  • bowulf:

    @WWBraveNewGirl These education videos are a bit more difficult to make and certainly more difficult to make interesting. I am glad you liked it, and it definitely makes help combating those claims easier and not limited to 500 characters or less.

  • WWBraveNewGirl:

    This is an awesome video! Great job and presentation. Education is power, my friend!

  • Alybist:

    Great video. Love all your video’s and appreciate your time. It has made my doing Atkins so much better.

  • bowulf:

    @lakegirl645 No problem. I have been meaning to this misconception for awhile now, and the Royal Pains episode was the proverbial straw. I am glad you liked it.

  • JoanLoganeski:

    Yes, I have been taking everyday for over 15 years. My doctor told me to do it to void polyp. All it is fiber, nothing more. Go to their website fore information.

  • StriveProductions:

    i have a question and i want a serious anserw can u take metamucil everyday? or it is it gonna mess up ur intestine i need a anserw please

  • JoanLoganeski:

    Yes the last time I looked Bill Loganeski was a male. The internal digestive track is the same for both males and females.

  • neoimean7:

    i just wanted to make shir this was for men too

    is shir a real word?

  • JoanLoganeski:

    bluenew88888 wrote ” I don’t think so not 5-7 pounds a week”. We just reviewed the video and can not find where we mention 5-7 pounds a week. That was a comment from one of our viewers. Thanks.

  • bluemew88888:

    @bluemew88888 now the key is to add this fiber to diet and excercize cause with out getting to graphic here lol if you count calories and you eat the right foods thats step 1. now exercise will burn the fat you have breaking it down. you sweat some out but the rest of your fat is gonna come out of the poop shoot thats step 2. finally this fiber will gell and pull the sh!t right out of you lol pun intended that is the final step. please dont take this as offensive i just wanted to tell ya facts

  • bluemew88888:

    i dont think so not 5-7 pounds a week but yes you are right its good for losing weight among other things like the detox your also right on. but to point out bout the weight each spoon full of this powder contains 5grams of fiber. daily recomended dose is 30 but you can do 40 grams. now for each gram of fiber you eat you cancel out 7 calories. so 7×30=210 calories a day 210×7=1470. now 1 pound equals 3500 calories so thats a little less than half a pound you could lose over a week.

  • alynng08:

    I’ve used this several times too maintain my weight and too lose about 10lbs it works as a detox for your colon and its so much cheaper. I use the berry flavor kind its awesome. drink about 4 8.oz drinks made of this daily you’ll lose at least 5-7lbs in a week.

  • chocolatecoveredgir1:

  • prisskitajoe:

    Thanks for the great information on Metamucil. I’m putting together my shopping list for the Joan bars, so I’m going to add this too.

  • athomas1124:
