Our expert says:
Despite the fact that you live far from town you can still plan carefully to purchase foods that are not high in fat so that you can apply the principles of a low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet’ and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet). Exercises that could be done if you are having problems with your knees, include cycling and swimming. If there is no place near where you live where you can swim (including a farm dam!), then you may have to purchase a stationary bicycle when next you come to town. Give it a try before your problem becomes insurmountable.
