Joel’s Hip Osteoarthritis Diet & Nutrition Plan

Below is my hip osteoarthritis diet and nutrition plan. I recently was diagnosed with what appears to be Grade 3 osteoarthritis at the very young age of 35. I would like to go as long as I can before a hip replacement (and who knows, they might even find some sort of cure in the next ten or fifteen years!). The two scientifically proven approaches to treating hip osteoarthritis are diet (losing weight in a healthy way) and exercise (low impact on the hip).

The perfect meal plan (all organic, raw):



Green tea each morning

Blender drink each morning. Goal is to help me feel more full. Recipe: – 745 calories
