This is an important update on my experimental diet.  
Fasting-induced-autophagy can cause gout or exacerbate existing gout.  
When you are in autophagy digesting your own tissues, you are in  
effect engaging in a purine rich diet. This effect can be worsened by  
alcohol use (especially beer). So despite ethanol not triggering an  
insulin response, it should be avoided on fasting days.
