High levels of uric acid, taking medication. Diet plan to follow?

I am looking for the right food to eat since I have a high levels of uric acid in the blood and now I am on medicine. When I look for the right foods one said I could eat it the other said no you can not . I was on Medifast and the Dr said that was too much protein and soy, you eat 5 medifast meals and one lean and green, each medifast meal has anywhere between 10 to 15 grams of protein so I started to eat more vegetables and fruit but you have to know which vegetables and what fruit and can I have low fat milk 1% I have decafe coffee, and over 120 ozs of water a day and help you can give me would be great.
