The NHS states: “It’s very important to eat a healthy, balanced diet if you have arthritis. Eating healthily will give you all the nutrients you need to maintain a healthy weight.
“Your diet should consist of a variety of foods from all five good groups, these are fruits and vegetables, starchy foods, meat fish, eggs and beans and milk and dairy foods.
“If you’re overweight, losing weight can really help you cope with arthritis. Too much weight places excess pressure on the joints in your hips, knees, ankles and feet, leading to increased pain and mobility problems.”
