If you are obese, your knees and hips experience up to 6 times as much pressure when walking down a flight of stairs & you are at risk for osteoarthritis in the kness, hands, ankles and hips. Eating tuna or salmon twice a week will give you the Omega 3's you need to keep your joints pliable and strong. Don't like fish? Get an Omega 3 supplement into your daily routine or eat foods high in Omega 3's, flaxseed or olive oil, eat more leafy greens, drink plenty of water & eat more veggies.

  • It's not even obese. Plain overweight does it, too. I have early osteoarthritis in the knees. While the doctor didn't encourage me to lose weight, he did encourage me to hit the recumbent bike, go to PT (which I'm done with now), and generally get stronger in the legs, since it holds it all together. My best friend works for the doctor, though, and when he heard I was working on losing weight, he was impressed. Too many patients miss that crucial part of the equation. - by MURPHGRRL
  • I had been taking Fish Oil vitamin daily, but I have been eating fish two or three days a week instead. I feel different and it just means eating more fish which is good for me anyway. Plus it builds my daughter's' taste bud for varies types of fish. - by SBNORMAL
