Foods like bread, grains, potatoes, corn, pasta, beer, juice, and chips are high in carbohydrates. This list is a very short condensed version of what people are consuming at high rates daily.
When carbs are not broken down successfully, they go undigested in your stomach or colon. This can lead to fermentation by the gut bacteria and can cause the stomach to bloat.
When your body is not digesting carbs the right way, insulin resistance can occur which can increase blood sugar levels over time. This can cause you to feel fatigued or crave even more unhealthy foods because of a spike in blood sugar. This is counterproductive for anyone who wants to get more active to begin losing a significant amount of weight.
Losing as little as 10 pounds can make a significant difference in the pressure on your knees.
Exercise That’s Easy On The Joints
Although eating healthy and exercise are effective ways to take off the pressure.
It may be difficult to find the right exercise for your achy joints. Swimming, water aerobics and even jogging in the pool are great ways to burn calories without putting too much pressure on your knees.
While you are in the water, your body floats and it helps take the weight off of your knees, and at the same time, it provides enough resistance to help strengthen your muscles.
Exercise machines like elliptical and stationary bikes are also a great way to get in good cardio without having sore knees by the end of your workout.
