Who on here with RA is a bit overweight and still eats the occasional naughty treat and often misses exercise to watch a good film?
Some of my holier than though friends write to me fairly often saying I should eat this and do that and take myself off the RA drugs as they are killing me. That I can reverse my RA with nutrition alone and I should be only eating alkaline food.
