Foods to Avoid with Arthritis

Saturated Fats

Fatty Cuts of Meat

Foods that are high in saturated fats are likely to trigger adipose (fat tissue) inflammation. This condition is an indicator for heart disease and worsens arthritis inflammation as well. Major sources of saturated fats are red meat, full-fat dairy products, and fried and processed foods.

A 2009 study from Mount Sinai School of Medicine found that decreasing the amount of saturated fat in your diet can help to restore the body’s natural defenses while reducing inflammation at the same time.
