Anti-inflammatory foods won't help if your joint mechanics are off, which means the muscles controlling the joint are not working optimally. Read “Treating Worn-Out Joints” at http://www.stadion.com/injuries_sports.html.

Concerning nutrition:

For most people it may be less important what anti-inflammatory foods they eat, but more important to eliminate the foods that are pro-inflammatory and harmful to *their* immune system. While your list includes many foods that are *generally considered anti-inflammatory* and does not include what are *generally considered pro-inflammatory foods,* if I ate like you do I would be sick and my joints would be inflamed. Because one's reactions to every food are individual it is not a good idea to follow the fads and advice in the popular media.

General principle: Whatever is truly good for you has to be good for all aspects of your health. If it is good for some aspects of your function but not for others, then it is not good at all and will likely harm you in the long run.

About eating egg whites without yolks:

Your list shows that you limit your intake of saturated fats. Here are articles you may want to read:

For health and thus for optimal function I follow the Optimal Diet of Dr. Kwasniewski. Follow your body's reactions and you will know what's good for you.
