Here are five things all runners should know about knees

Runners don’t get arthritis in their knees more often than nonrunners.


Those are the facts. Period. If anything, long-term studies have found that runners have less incidence of knee osteoarthritis. One study that followed runners and nonrunners for 18 years found that, while 20% of the runners developed arthritis during that time, 32% of the nonrunners did. A large study that looked at runners and walkers found that regular runners had roughly half the rate of arthritis as regular walkers. In that second study, the runners with the highest regular mileage had the lowest rate of arthritis

The above is true regardless of your age.


Some medical experts have said that loss of cartilage, including in the knees, is a natural part of aging. But there’s no evidence that running accelerates that loss. In fact, at least one study found that when people who were at risk of developing arthritis began a moderate running program, the health of their cartilage improved, while the cartilage of a group of similar people who didn’t start running didn’t improve.

Supplements won’t re-grow knee cartilage.


Despite ad claims, no dietary supplements have been proven to increase knee cartilage. The most popular such supplement, glucosamine, may help with knee osteoarthritis by protecting the articular cartilage, which, among other roles, helps to lubricate the knee joint. A study that looked at vitamin D supplementation in people who had knee arthritis found that they had the same levels of pain and loss of cartilage after two years as did people with arthritis who didn’t take vitamin D.

Runner’s knee is usually caused by issues elsewhere.


The most common knee injury among runners is runner’s knee. Known clinically as chondromalacia patella or patellafemoral pain syndrome, it’s inflammation of the cartilage under your kneecap. There’s increasing consensus among sports medicine professionals that many people with runner’s knee have a few common biomechanical problems. These include weak hips and glutes, which introduce instability further down the legs; weak quadriceps, which can make it difficult for the kneecap to track properly; and tight hamstrings, which shift some of running’s impact to the knees. A good strengthening program, such as seen in this video, can go a long way to preventing runner’s knee.

There are some simple ways to keep your knees happy.


As noted above, weakness and/or tightness elsewhere in your legs can mean trouble for your knees. So get stronger.

Extra weight places tremendous strain on your knees. The American College of Sports Medicine has said that each additional pound of body mass puts four extra pounds of stress on the knee. Running’s long-term effect on keeping weight lower is thought to be a key reason why, as we saw above, runners might have less incidence of knee arthritis.

Run on level ground to lessen the torque on your knees.

If you have a history of knee pain, including from accidents or other sports, consider switching to more of a forefoot strike. One recent study found that more impact force affects the knees in rearfoot strikers, while forefoot strikers have more impact forces in their ankles.

Train, Eat, Rest, & Repeat – Ways to Lose Weight Without Counting Calories

1. Replace Your Grain-Based Breakfast With Eggs

Losing weight can be as simple as changing your breakfast. Two separate studies have shown that eating eggs in the morning (compared to a breakfast of bagels) can help you lose fat without trying.

Put simply, the eggs were so fulfilling that the women automatically ate fewer calories at subsequent meals.

2. Using Smaller Plates Can Trick Your Brain Into Thinking That You’re Actually Eating More

The human brain is the most complex object in the universe, gram for gram. It tends to work in mysterious ways… and the control of eating behavior is incredibly complicated. It is the brain that ultimately determines whether we should or should not eat. Interestingly, there is one neat thing you can do to “trick” your brain into thinking that it has eaten more food.

This is using smaller plates.

3. Eating More Protein Can Reduce Appetite, Increase Fat Burning and Help You Gain Muscle

There is a lot of evidence that protein can increase fat burning and reduce hunger, leading to automatic weight loss. In fact, studies show that protein boosts metabolism more than any other macronutrient. One of the reasons for that is that it takes the body more calories to digest and make use of protein, than it does fat and carbs.

Protein also increases satiety, leading to significantly reduced hunger. In one study, increasing protein to 30% of calories lead to an automatic decrease in calorie intake of 441 calories per day. Many studies show that increasing your protein intake can lead to automatic weight loss, even when eating until fullness.

Protein can also help you gain more muscle, especially if you also lift weights. Muscle tissue is metabolically active, meaning that it burns a small amount of calories, even at rest .The best way to get in more protein is to eat more animal foods like meat, fish and eggs… preferably at every meal.

4. Eating Foods With a Low Energy Density and Lots of Fiber Make You Feel More Full With Fewer Calories 

Another way to feel more satisfied with fewer calories is to eat foods that have a low energy density. This includes foods that have a high water content, such as vegetables and some fruits. Studies consistently show that dieters who eat less energy dense foods lose more weight than those who eat foods with a high energy density.

In one study, women who ate soup (low energy density) lost 50% more weight than women who ate an energy dense snack. Vegetables are also rich in soluble fiber, which has been shown to cause weight loss in some studies.

Another benefit of soluble fiber is that it gets broken down by bacteria in the digestive tract to produce a fatty acid called butyrate, which is believed to have significant anti-obesity effects… at least in rats. Combining animals (high in protein) with a bunch of plants (low energy density) is a recipe for success.

5. Cutting Carbs Can Make You Lose Weight Fast While Eating Until Fullness

Probably THE best way to start losing weight without calorie counting or portion control is to reduce your carbohydrate intake. Studies consistently show that people who eat less carbohydrates, automatically start to eat less calories and lose weight without any major effort. The best way to cut carbs is to reduce or eliminate major carb sources from your diet like sugars, sweets, sodas, as well as starchy foods like bread, pasta, potatoes, etc. 

6. Making Time For Quality Sleep and Avoiding Stress Can Optimize The Function of Key Hormones 

Two things that often get ignored when discussing health (and weight) are sleep and stress levels. Both are incredibly important for the optimal function of your body and hormones. Inadequate sleep is one of the strongest risk factors for obesity… short sleep duration raising the risk by 89% in children and 55% in adults. Poor sleep can increase hunger and cravings and cause a biochemical tendency for weight gain by disrupting hunger hormones like ghrelin and leptin.

Excess stress can increase your levels of the hormone cortisol, which is known to increase belly fat accumulation and the risk of chronic, Western diseases. For these reasons, it is very important to make time for quality sleep, as well as avoiding unnecessary stressors in your life.
