Eating well begins with eating a variety of foods each day to get the nutrients you need for good health. Eating well isn’t about counting calories, although it’s still important to make sure that you’re not eating more than your body needs. It’s the overall pattern of eating that’s important.

L’alimentation ne peut pas guérir l’arthrite. Cela dit, des recherches laissent croire que certains types d’aliments peuvent aider à en prendre en charge les symptômes. Par ailleurs, une alimentation équilibrée contribue au maintien d’un poids santé, ce qui augmente le niveau d’énergie et réduit le stress exercé sur les articulations.
