Are Red Beans Good or Bad for Gout?

Obviously, you already know some information on gout or you would not be reading this article, so let me be as brief as possible and clear some things up.

I’m going to give you a different perspective on gout and its causes and answer the question of where red beans are good or bad for gout.

Ready to dive in? Great, let’s get started.

Are Red Beans Really Bad For Gout?

First things first, let me deliver on the promise of the title and give you a direct answer to your question of are red beans good or bad for gout.

Red beans are not the best choice for people who suffer from gout. You will pay if you keep eating them. We will cover more details on red beans later. I first I want to teach you “why” red beans are not good for people who suffer from gout outbreaks.

You May Be Lacking Some Very Important Information

Mainstream medical states that gout is caused by an increase in purines in your blood serum levels, but what caused the purines to go out of control in the first place?

This is typical of modern medicine. Their goal is to manage a disease, condition or syndrome, not fix it, so the focus is on treatment.

Here is another example. There was a study just a few years back that suggested that gout causes type 2 diabetes.

How ignorant for supposedly smart people.

They both have the same risk factors, and yet they attempt to point to gout as a cause instead of a symptom of something much bigger.

So, what’s causing both diabetes and gout?

The Real Culprits

Sugar and blood sugar problems to be exact.

Sugar and fructose, in particular, are the main culprits from my perspective and testing myself.

There have been quite a few studies come out over the last 150 plus years that directly implicates sugar.

If you still think purines are the cause of gout, you need a reality check. I have an article about what does not causes gout, and it’s backed up with a long history to suggest that gout is caused by sugar intake, not meats.

Just 200 years ago, the average American consumed between 4 and 9lbs of sugar per year per person, now in the US, that number is bumping 200 lbs of sugar per person, per year.

Carbs And Sugar Are Your Enemies

People are overweight, plain out obese and they still haven’t figured it out. Guess what red beans are loaded with? Carbs that turn to sugar in the blood.

Alcohol Has Long Been A Known Factor In Gout

Beer, liquor, and wine are loaded with what? Carbs that turn to sugars in the blood, so alcohol is bad for gout, and this is not in dispute. I explain the connection and vicious cycle in my post titled: Does Meat or Sugar Cause Gout? The Truth May Surprise You.

If you want results, do the opposite of what Main Stream medicine preaches because their goal is to sell pharmaceutical drugs.

Sugar has literally thousands and thousands of peer-reviewed studies, trials, and test that directly implicate sugar in almost every disease, condition or syndrome commonly know to western society.

Why Don’t 2nd And 3rd World Countries Have Gout Problems?

Gout, until recently, has never been an issue in 2nd and 3rd world countries… but why not?

Sugar! Or, well, a lack of it.

50 years ago, gout was basically unheard of in Mexico, now it’s prominent with trade and super low sugar prices.

Cheap carb foods and sugar are indeed the cause of gout from my perspective.

Red beans have 110 grams of carbs or sugar in each cup. That’s the same amount of sugar as 3 – 16 oz coca-cola or the average soft drink.

Closing Thoughts

I would suggest you cut all sugars and as many carbs as you can and you will likely avoid future outbreaks if you learn to manage your diet correctly, I have and have helped many others who’ve taken my advice and tried it themselves.

I recently tried something new and will release that information very soon. This could squash gout and diabetes in their tracks.

Like my Facebook page for the earliest notifications on this new method to squash gout, and no, there are no e-books, nothing to buy, just pure information that you can easily apply in your life for relief.
