My wife makes a mean batch of Lasagna from time to time. Never exactly the same from one batch to the next as she doesn't use a recipe. I'd miss that more than other types of pasta. She hasn't made it in a while, though. On a different note,though-- I have to take Allipurinol for gout. I have had high uric acid in my blood so was predisposed. I have no interest in waiting to see if I could go without the med!
Friend had said while he was impressed with the weight loss from keto (me too), he didn't want to eat that much meat and deal with gout. I haven't had a flair up in 3 years, but take 4 pills a day. I know the Dr's nurse well and I asked if the Allipurinol could cause kidney stones, as I had read that possibility. She said none of their patients had any problem. I haven't really changed my diet after the gout attack. Plenty of meat,lettuce,and some beer. Gout attacks are a painful SOB! Any info out there?
Every molecule of fructose or alcohol though the liver produces uric acid. For some reason pople focus on meat but it’s often the soda or energy drink doing it.
Your friend who doesn’t want to eat so much meat has the wrong image of keto. Protein should stay the same with the difference made up in either fat you eat or fat on your body you use.
With keto, there is often one last gout flare, the reson is when ketosis is new, your kidneys excrete it and it competes with the uric acid until you become adapted and use the ketones rather than urinating them.
People notice their ketone urine strips only work for awhile.
After adapted, that’s usually the end of the gout.
