Weight loss and dieting is a great struggle for millions of people. Being even slightly overweight can lead to some avoidable medical issues including joint pain. Many people suffer from secondary Osteoarthritis and harsh joint pain brought on by obesity.
To reduce the severity and impact of osteoarthritis, it is appropriate to maintain a normal weight for your height and body structure, to avoid excessive emphasis on the joints as you get older, and to try to keep as physically active as you can (even if that means a short daily walk).
With a smaller portion you may still feel a little hungry after you eat but wait 30 minutes before going back for more. Often it takes that long for the stomach to signal the brain that you’ve had enough and feel full.

So control your portions and give your body time to register what you ate. It will lead to a sense of satisfaction after you have eaten and a healthier you.
