In brief: Yes

With osteoarthritis of the knee it is important to maintain proper body weight since every bit of extra weight magnifies the forces the knee feels.
Physical precautions include limiting pounding and twisting activities.

Really modify Ur activity as rec above & do low impact exercise like walking stationary bike. No jump, twist or running @ cutting .

In brief: No

There is no diet that is known to affect osteoarthritis.
Weight bearing exercise and weight control are most important to reduce symptoms and prevent progression.
