This is going to open a new world to you. You will be making some food changes and it will change your pain level. When you follow the program as I did you should get pain relief within weeks, or less.
Here is a short version of what you should and should not eat. Since everyone is different you may want to refer to my book “I Cured My Arthritis You Can Too" to see exactly what it is you are eating that is causing you so much pain.
For most arthritics the things I am asking you to give up, FOR YOUR OWN GOOD are:
Salt: Just no salt.
Coffee: More than one cup is not good for you. Decaf is much, much worse and you should NOT drink anything that says decaf on it.
More than 4 cups a day of coffee and the rate for heart attacks in men increases to 50%. I don't know for women but I suspect it is close to that.
Soda / Pop: No sodas, anything that says diet, sugar free, or decaffeinated or Lite.
Flour: You should not eat flour of any kind. Please give it up for at least 3 weeks and see how you feel. If you then want to add it back into your diet use the method described in the book.
Please stop eating all white flour. It s KILLING YOU.
For the free report Why white flour is an abomination - and is killing you. No Sugar Of Any Kind: You can have a wee amount of real honey that is unprocessed and raw honey. If it is not unprocessed, do not buy it. The best source is the Health food store or local beekeeper. Look for him in the yellow pages.
If you absolutely have to have a sweetener use Steva or Splenda sugar substitutes. ALL others are VERY BAD for you. Some have been known to cause cancers.
No Dairy Products: Cheese, Yogurt, Cottage Cheese, etc. You CAN have Real Butter and Real Cream. They will should not hurt you.
WHAT YOU CAN HAVE Tea: You can have herbal teas, and green teas.
Meats: At least 70 grams of meat protein a day. Chicken, fish, pork, turkey, seafood, tuna, salmon etc.
Eggs: They really are a perfect food. After all they have all it takes to make a chicken!!
Vegetables: You will test vegetables like tomatoes, potatoes (most people with arthritis can not tolerate those two vegetables) Green and orange vegetables are marvelous.
Try to introduce a new one from the market every time you go. Try vegetables from other countries.
Onions and garlic and all seasonings are fine. Just no salt. You can get salt-free seasonings at a health food market.
Fruits: They are touchy. I ask you to do the fruit fast, but if the first day you find the pains are greater than you simple cannot tolerate fruits that are mostly sugar.
Here are good fruits. Grapefruit, kiwis, berries, but not strawberries. You can have them fresh or frozen or canned. Just read the label and make sure no sugar is added.
Do not eat: Bananas, peaches, oranges, pineapple, pears, and melons of any kind. Or any fruits that is sweet. At least not until your pain is better or gone and then follow my book “I Cured My Arthritis You Can Too" on introducing new foods.
Drink: 8 glasses of water with the lemon to taste.
Keep reminding yourself, "You have a degenerative disease and since degenerative disease is caused by our eating habits, our way of life and the air we breathe, we can make changes to restore our immune system." Our immune system will heal us when we feed it properly. Your health, good or bad, is in your hands.
I am here to help YOU to help yourself to a pain free and healthy life style.

I would advise anyone willing to try this to opt out each food item one at a time instead of all at once so that one may be able to know what actually is bad or good for one's own body. I find it counterintuitive that you allow lemon to taste in water but clearly state no citrus. Finally, pineapple is good! Of course, everything in moderation, but pineapple does have certain chemicals that are good for arthritis.

Hoping to try it, cant walk properly, so anything is worth a go, instead of costly medication.
WOW...I do not have arthritis, but the diet seems very restrictive. I hope it helps those who need it.

I have the very first signs of arthritis and am determined to rid myself of it before it goes any further. I have ordered your book but it hasn't arrived yet.In the meantime I am trying to follow the advice in this article. At my supermarket I have found yoghurt that is lactose and gluten free - is this type of yoghurt ok?» left by Mel 341 days 13 hours ago.
I am also on the first stages of Arthritis and I am only 35. I do not believe that yoghurt that is anything but pure is not something that would be good for Arthritis.
There is a Organic yoghurt from Merri creek from Adelaide and they even have something called Quark which is far better than Yoghurt, try this or any other organic pure yoghurt . I am going on this diet too but I am a vege so I will not be having the meat. good luck to you Liz and everyone else fighting for their health.

Thank you for the great post. I have read on other sites that bananas were wonderful for arthritis however each time I ate them over a week my pain increased 10 fold. This is the first place I have found to reinforce my beliefs that they aren't that great and following your guidelines within 3 days I can now sleep without pain. Thank You!

I went on this diet for a year and a half and my pain became very manageable but after that the pain came back a bad as ever. Is there a reason it quite working? I lost about 20 lbs while on the diet and the weight has not come back so the weight did not seem to be why the pain went away or came back.
