I’ve got gout!
Made a panicked phone call to Angela who suggested I increase my intake of beetroot as it is low in purines and helps detox the liver and kidneys, thus helping to ‘cure’ gout. She also said that cherries are brilliant for this too, but as it is not the cherry season, I should check out a concentrate called Cherry Active which is made from tart Montmorency cherries as these are terrific for reducing gout too. You can get this from active-edge.co.uk
That’s the bad news….the good news is I have lost 2lbs!
Work was pretty crazy this week but I am feeling rather pleased with that because despite all the madness, I managed to keep to the new regime.
