My doctor told me that in order to alleviate arthritic pain, I should lose weight to take pressure off of my joints. The problem is that it hurts to exercise because of the pain in my joints. I've tried switching to a vegetarian diet to help somewhat, but is there anything else I can do?

"Low impact exercises such as swimming, walking or even stretching can help alleviate joint pain. Regular physical activity and a proper diet are also beneficial. You could consider portion control and eating regularly on a schedule, rather than skipping meals. It's better to eat 4-6 times a day in smaller portions or snacks than to eat once or twice a day. Additionally, you might want to try taking Apple Cider Vinegar (with mother in it - unfiltered) daily. Consulting with a personal trainer at a gym for RA safe exercises or starting physical therapy could also be beneficial."
