    I have a freiberg's infraction (right foot) and I've been advised by my doctor to stay off my foot as much as possible.

    Is there anything I can do to maintain my weight/lose weight without having to "diet"? I've heard some suggestions like swimming and I've done that for a few weeks and got sick of it (brittle nails, showering after, etc).

    It's been approx 8 weeks since diagnosis. I've tried running but that hurt like hell. :wtc:

    doctor told you to stay off your feet... so you went running.

    That was when I got diagnosed 8 wks ago. It felt better after 8 weeks, speed walking was fine so I decided to run for a bit.
