arthritis, ageing and diet

18 months ago I had to stop jogging, and since then have been struggling with stairs - left knee very bad.
arthritis diet

Two weeks ago I decided to try eliminating red meat from my diet - now there is no sign of arthritic problems in my knees. White meat (chicken and turkey), free range eggs and white fish don't seem to aggravate arthritis at all.

I'm publishing this in the hope that other people will give it a try.

The NHS rates lean meat as acceptable, but gives no clear guidance on the difference between red meat and white.

  1. nutrition guidelines for over 50s

    SINGAPORE - Seniors aged 50 and above:

    The Recipe for Healthy Ageing is produced by the Health Promotion Board (HPB) and comprises a nutrition guide, recipe book and an educational poster. It also includes information on nutrients such as calcium and protein.

    According to the World Health Organisation, diseases that commonly affect seniors include heart disease, stroke and diabetes, which are all related to diet.

    Positive dietary changes such as a reduction in salt intake and increased consumption of fruit and vegetables by one to two servings daily can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.

    The toolkit, which is available in four languages, will be distributed at a later date through HPB's partners such as FairPrice and Sheng Siong supermarkets. From May 20 onwards, they will also be made available at community centres.
