    I haven’t noticed any super obvious links between my diet and my arthritis, but I probably should start experimenting to see if I can make any adjustments which will help reduce inflammation. The arthritis in my wrists has gotten bad lately and it’s interfering with certain aspects of my training.

    There are a lot of things listed as causing inflammation, however many of them have no reasearch to back them up. Example; Dairy. Some say it causes inflammation so don't do dairy. However according to teh Arthritis Foundation, there is no evidence to back that up and most doctors feel milk helps osteoarthritis suffers with bone loss. Basically I tend to follow what the Arthritis Foundation says.

    It may serve to note that Nutrition is a young science and new developments are still occurring. Vitamin D is important for calcium intake and joint health. Research may be biased due to funding. It is safe to say that Sugar and fried foods are definitely inflammatory.
