7. Saturated Fats
There are lots of reasons to avoid eating too much saturated fat, from the risk of heart disease to the damage it does your joints. In an interesting link, people who have arthritis are already at a higher risk for heart disease.
Multiple studies have shown that a reduction in dietary saturated fat calms the body’s inflammatory response. To reduce your joint pain, whatever the cause, steer clear of fried food, red meat, full-fat dairy, and commercially baked goodies.
