Like Beverly I have OA. I do know that what I don't eat has a positive impact. The biggest change I made was to stop sugars (both refined and artificial ). I don't really do well with honey and limit my stevia to 1 or 2 packets every couple of weeks.
Giving up hamburger would be hard. The type of cheese (processed) might be worth finding alternatives.
Good luck! Please let us know what you learn. We are all eager to feel less pain. emoticon

Airyn, welcome from a fellow Aquarian! My husband's cousin has RA, and she cut out just about everything from her diet and swears by it...of course, she's a size minus 0, but that's fine. I'm with you, though--no way could I give up cheese. Good luck on your journey!

Blessed be.

Thanks for all the tips! I googled the RA diet and it didn't really help me. I am seeing that I have to stay away from ground beef and cheese, which are 2 of my favorite things and staples in my house =(

Welcome. I've never heard of it, but when I googled RA Diet, I came up with the following links:

ui

Dr. Weil has an anti-imflammatory diet, which might be what your friend was referring to.

That wouldn't work for me because I don't eat any soy products due to having estrogen-receptor positive breast cancer 15 years ago.

Hi Airyn!

I am 33 and have RA also. I used to take Enbrel but am now on Remicade.

I've looked into various diets. I haven't heard of an "RA diet" exactly, but I have read and heard about an anti-inflammatory diet. There's a lot of information out there if you google "anti-inflammatory diet." It's still a developing field, so I'm not entirely sure how much is right or wrong, but it can give you a place to start experimenting. Here's one good article:

Hi!! I'm not new on SP but I am new on this team. I'm 31 (32 in 12 days) and recently married and diagnosed with RA 7 years ago in ALL my joints =( I take Enbrel and the weather in the great state of Ohio has not been all that great lately on my joints.

I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of the RA diet. A friend told me of it and I can't find much on it. If anyone has any info on it it would be greatly appreciated!
