    Well, looks like I did'nt read the small print properly :(

    Turns out there is a recommendation not to have a VLCD if you suffer from gout. Having it managed successfully for the last year with medication, I am suffering from a pretty bad attack right now (first time for a year) - after reading on the web (and exante's page), looks like a VLCD can cause gout or make it worse for people who already suffer...

    As much as the weighloss is great - the ability to walk pain free is better.

    So, looks like I will have to have a different, slower diet.

    Thanks to all for your support.

    Good luck Al. Glad you've worked out why things had got worse, and hope that you find a weight loss route that works for you.

    All the best xx

    Ouch. Does it say anything about doing a higher plan like WS? Or is it a total no-go?

    Good luck with the rest of your weightloss journey - whatever vehicle you choose

    Oh no that sucks. My OH has had a flare up of gout, started in his ankle and moved to his knee, it's lasted over 3 weeks and even with Colchecine it's still not cleared up, I didn't know Exante could affect it, maybe he should stop too :(

    I hope you're feeling better soon Al, I've never experienced it myself but seeing my OH through it I know it can be really painfull xx
