If you want to lose weight, you're not alone. Keeping to a healthy weight is particularly important if you have inflammatory arthritis because of the extra strain it puts on your joints.
The best approach to food for people with inflammatory arthritis – or anyone else – is a well-balanced diet.
Roughly two-thirds of your diet should come from fruits, vegetables and whole grains. The other third should include low-fat dairy products and lean sources of protein.
Talk to your doctor about checking your weight and what support is available if you need to lose weight.
