This popular high-fat eating plan is not the smartest choice for people who have rheumatoid arthritis and other systemic inflammatory conditions.
While weight loss can be beneficial for many types of joint pain, the nutrients you eat while you are shedding pounds are the essential ingredients for good health. The ketogenic diet, the buzzworthy high-fat, low-carb diet commonly called keto, is based on the idea that cutting out carbohydrates — the body’s primary source of energy — forces the body to burn fat for fuel, supercharging your weight loss.
But eliminating grains, fruits, many vegetables, as well as other healthy foods from your diet depletes your body of the vitamins and minerals that help keep your body in balance.
“It’s not a good choice for people with systemic inflammatory conditions, because it completely goes against the science we know that prevents inflammation in the body,” says Lona Sandon, PhD, RDN, an associate professor in the department of clinical nutrition at UT Southwestern in Dallas, who also has rheumatoid arthritis.
