It is so simple, really. Gout is a symptom of a condition that can kill you if you do not fix it. So that is what I am doing. That I will not get gout anymore is a nice benefit of not being dead. And my children would probably thank me.
Todays weather and temperature: Sunny and warm, actual spring weather. But only for today.
Breakfast: Blue cheese rice. You take a piece of blue cheese, mash it up, whisk in an egg, and turn in rice hot from the cooker. You have to have at least five times as much rice as cheese, otherwise the cheese will dominate completely. That makes it a fairly large dish.
Lunch: Inari-zushi, lotus root (renkon) unfortunately filled with shrimp, and an onigiri (rice ball - and in Sendai, they are really balls).
Snack: Cheese kamaboku.
Dinner: Vegetable soup and fried mushrooms, and a small piece of hamburger.
Todays supplements and dosage: No supplements today, we had a very late breakfast.
Todays UA reading: 6.5 mg/dL, so eating an oyster has less effect on your UA than drinking an energy drink. Hmmmm.
Todays step count: 4371 steps
How much did I drink today?: Water 3 liter, coffee 0.5 liter, no-purine beer 0.9 liter, more or less one US gallon.
This weeks weight: 121.2 kg
Waist circumference: 119 cm
How many times did I go to the toilet today? #1 7 times, #2 2 times
My urine pH this morning (for why this matters, read more here): 7
Was my urine strange in any way? No
How many minutes did I use the Sixpad Foot Fit Plus? No desktime today, so no Sixpad time. Although a foot massage would have been nice.
