Arthritis? NEVER Eat These Foods Again!
Like it or not, what you eat impacts how you feel.
And I’m not just talking about your mood or your energy levels (although it impacts those, too).
Your diet plays a key role in how your body handles pain and stiffness.
I often talk about foods that can help you reduce the pain and stiffness of arthritis.
But there is a list of foods to avoid if you have arthritis. Some are obvious—but others are ones you probably think are good for you.
Arthritis is characterized by inflammation—and what you eat plays a huge role in your inflammation levels.
The right foods can LOWER inflammation… while the wrong ones send it in OVERDRIVE.
Choosing the right foods can help in two ways:
- First, avoiding inflammation-causing foods cuts down on the inflammation in your body.
- Second, choosing foods that help maintain a healthy body weight reduces the inflammation in your body produced by fat cells.
With that in mind, here are the top foods to avoid if you’re having trouble with your joints.
Bad fats like omega-6 fatty acids (corn, sunflower, and vegetable oils, for example) and trans fats are notorious for increasing inflammation.
And while omega-6 fats aren’t bad in moderation, most people don’t eat them in moderation.
Sugar—in all forms—wreaks havoc on your body.
One study showed that people who regularly drink sugary drinks have an increased risk of rheumatoid arthritis.
In addition, bad fats and sugar also increase AGEs (advanced glycation end-products) in your body. “AGE” an appropriate acronym, since these inflammatory compounds accelerate aging and disease.
Those are the types of foods that are bad for everyone. But there are other foods—like certain vegetables, meat, and seafood—that people with arthritis should avoid.
For example, nightshade vegetables are notorious for causing problems in people with arthritis.
Avoiding these vegetables—which include tomatoes, bell peppers, and eggplants—can improve symptoms in people suffering from arthritis pain.
If you think nightshades are making your arthritis pain worse, cut them out of your diet for a few weeks and see if you notice a difference.
