On a whole food plant-based diet/lifestyle there’s no counting calories, no portion restriction (eat as much as you want), and there’s no yo-yo dieting effect where you restrict and then binge and then repeat while watching your weight rise and fall accordingly.

A whole food plant-based diet is an anti-inflammatory diet, a healing diet and a chronic disease prevention diet. If you are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis or another chronic inflammatory disease, I would urge you to study the whole food plant-based diet (with minimal added salt, oil and sugar) online and consider adopting it for a period of time (at least one month) to see if your symptoms calm down and your blood work returns towards normal.

I’ve learned an important lesson recently that may be useful in motivating other rheumatoid arthritis sufferers to persevere in their efforts to reverse their disease and attain an effective remission/cure.
If you’ve been fighting rheumatoid arthritis for some time, trying various different treatments, diets, and lifestyle changes without success (or without complete success), then you may need to try a new approach.
