gout and you reviewWhile gout isn’t generally a life-threatening problem, it can be quite uncomfortable.  Left untreated, it can also lead to some serious problems, such as heart disease, stroke, and physical impairment.  There are medications available to treat gout, but not everyone responds well to them and they also have occasional side effects.

Spiro Koulouris, the author of Gout and You, says that you can fix this problem yourself by following his special diet outlined in his book.  He also says that you’ll see lower uric acid levels in 60 days or he’ll give you your money back.  That sounds interesting, so I thought I’d take a closer look and see what the book is all about.  Is Gout and You a scam?

Read on for the full Gout and You review.

Gout and You Overview

Gout and You is sold as a downloadable ebook in PDF format; you can download the book immediately after purchase.  In addition, you can read a PDF book on nearly any computer device, including a smartphone or a tablet computer.

There are no bonuses included with the purchase of Gout and You, though that’s not necessarily a negative.  Most bonuses included with health books are either of little value and are thrown in just to give you the impression that you’re getting more for your money, or they have content that should have been included in the main product in the first place.

gout and you scamGout is a complex disease, and a number of factors come together to bring it about.  Part of the problem is genetics; some people just seem to be more prone to the disease than others.  Another factor is diet.  A couple of hundred years ago, gout was know as the “disease of kings,” and that had to do with the fact that the problem was mostly known among the wealthy, who had a richer diet than most other people.

The approach taken in Gout and You is that you can largely minimize the problem, if not rid yourself of it, by changing your diet and by engaging in regular exercise.  Of course, engaging in regular exercise can be difficult if you’re crippled by gout, since inflammation of the joints, especially those in the feet, are among the most common symptoms.  Swollen feet can make it difficult, if not impossible, to even walk, so getting some exercise could be even more difficult for someone suffering from gout.

That’s why Gout and You concentrates on diet.  When you read the 223 page book, you’ll find the following chapters:

  • Chapter 1:Fat, Protein & Carbs…Getting the Facts Straight
  • Chapter 2:Coronary Heart Disease—The Number One Human Killer & Its Link With Gout
  • Chapter 3:Preventing Cancer – What You Should Know As a Gout Sufferer
  • Chapter 4:Preventing High Blood Pressure & Diabetes While Suffering From Gout
  • Chapter 5:What Foods Can We Eat In A Gout Diet Plan & To Prevent Other Diseases?
  • Chapter 6:A word about Tophi
  • Chapter 7:Big Pharma and the Greedy Food Companies
  • Chapter 8:The Importance of Exercise for Gout Sufferers

These eight chapters take up just the first 25% or so of Gout and You; the remainder of the book, or some 150+ pages, consists of recipes.

The first part of Gout and You gives you an overview of gout, its history, its diagnosis, its causes, and the methods that current medicine uses to treat it.  The author devotes a lot of space to criticizing modern medicine, and the pharmaceutical industry in particular, in creating medicines that may treat the symptoms, but not the cause, and which might have side effects that you may not want.

It’s possible that the author of Gout and You is correct, but it’s also possible that he’s just saying unkind things about the pharma industry in order to justify the treatment options in his book, which primarily consist of diet.

gout and you cure goutDon’t get me wrong; changing your diet can be effective in treating gout, and if you suffer from the painful malady, changing your diet to one that is lower in fat and protein can help a lot.  The author has some specific recommendations for what you should eat, what you should avoid eating, and the proportions of the foods that are OK to eat that you should consume if you want to reduce or minimize the uric acid levels in your blood.

The recipes that make up the bulk of Gout and You are easy to prepare and appear to be quite tasty.  You’ll see recipes for:

  • Chicken Breasts Roasted with Honey, Pine Nuts and Thyme
  • Couscous Salad with Dried Cranberries and Pecans
  • Backed Pasta with Zucchini and Mozzarella
  • Grilled Veal Chops and Zucchini and Rosemary
  • Pasta Nicoise Salad
  • Eggplant and Potato Ragout with Feta Topping
  • Risotta Primavera
  • Cheesy Pita Pockets

As I said, the recipes are all easy to prepare, don’t require unusual ingredients and are likely quite tasty.  They’re heavy on carbs, and relatively low on fats and protein.  This, the author says, will help you get your uric acid levels down and will likely cause you to have fewer gout attacks.

It’s worth saying that you should talk to your doctor if you believe you have gout and before you try the methods outlined in Gout and You.  It’s possible that you might have some other condition, so it’s best to get a medical evaluation first.

On the whole, Gout and You is a good read, though the author does have a tendency to rant against the pharmaceutical industry.  I’ve reviewed a couple of books about gout lately, and while I preferred the Gout Diet Guide to Gout and You, this book will likely help anyone who has a problem with this painful condition.

Gout and You Summary

gout and you- thumbs upIf you suffer from gout and you’re not getting the relief you need from conventional medicine, changing your diet and getting some regular exercise may help.  If that’s the case, then Gout and You is a worthwhile read and may be of help to you.  There’s an OK overview of the disease and how it’s treated and more than 100 recipes to help you eat a healthier diet.

Gout and You is recommended.
