Can losing weight really help reduce knee pain?
If you ask your doctor, almost all of them will say yes.
The reason being, less weight means less pressure on your joints (including your knees)...
And generally, losing weight also usually results in less inflammation too.
But is there proof that it really helps reduce bone-on-bone pain?

“Has Losing Weight Helped Reduce Your Knee Pain?”
Here’s what others have reported on how losing weight has affected their knee pain:
“I have osteoarthritis in both of my knees, my right knee being the worst. I also have some problems with my feet and ankles. My pain has decreased significantly since I've lost weight and as a result, my mobility has improved. When I first started my weight loss effort back in January of 2012, I could barely hobble down to the end of my driveway. Now, I can, on a good day, walk a mile. I can also go grocery shopping now without using one of those electric carts. I can go shopping in the mall.”
Another user says running made their knees worse - but running AFTER losing weight was fine:
“My knees got better as I lost the weight. Then they got worse again when I started running. Then they got better again as the weight continued to come off and I kept running. Very strange. But I do watch them to make sure I rest them when they hurt.”
Surprisingly, one user says that losing weight made the pain go away for good:
“My left knee was horrible. I had bursitis and even walking was painful. We were talking knee replacement and all that jazz...It would swell up and look awful all the time and I used to get cortizone shots into it a few times a year. Since I got below 180ish lbs (over 2 years now), it hasn't bothered me even once!
And another knee pain success story:
“I've had ACL replacement in one knee, which led to chondromalacia in the other knee. About 25 pounds down I felt a noticeable difference when taking the stairs.
Now I can run over 3 miles, and my knees are soooo much better than before!”
Losing weight can most definitely help reduce the pain.
But why does weight affect your knees in the first place?
Each Pound Of Weight Loss Means 4 Less Pounds Of Pressure On Your Knees
You see, the most surprising part is that, for people who are overweight - each pound lost doesn’t mean there’s one less pound of pressure on your knees…
You’ll be shocked to hear, each pound lost results in a reduction of FOUR pounds of load on your knee joints!(1)
That means if you lose 10 pounds, your knees bear 40 pounds less of weight!
That’s why losing weight has made such a massive impact for the users mentioned above.
It can literally eliminate the knee pain for good.
Now the question is, how should you go about losing weight?
