Our diets can play a role in how the body conducts pain. Some eating patterns are likely to trigger joint pain, while others prevent the same. I highly advise you to monitor your eating patterns of these foods as they contribute to your joint pain;

Red Meat

Grilled red meat is packed with saturated fats combined with ages (Advanced Glycation End). These properties stimulate inflammation around the joints.

Fried Foods

Regular consumption of fried meals is bad for your health. Most fried foods are rich in trans fats, sodium, and excess calories. Including these foods in our diets causes unintended weight gain that can induce a lot of pressure on your joints and contribute to cardiovascular diseases.

Processed Foods

Heavily processed foods are high in added preservatives that are common inflammatory triggers. Frequent intake of pre-packed meals increases unhealthy fats, and sugar amounts in the body encourage inflammation leading to joint pain and strain.

I believe that nutrition science is a wonderful helper both for the preventive improvement of health and adjunctive therapy in treatment. My goal is to help people improve their health and well-being without torturing themselves with unnecessary dietary restrictions. I am a supporter of a healthy lifestyle – I play sports, cycle, and swim in the lake all year round.
