As I perhaps mentioned before in an earlier post. Japanese doctors advise people to stop eating white rice and 'get off the floor'. Buy some chairs. I would go with that as years of Japanese living and teaching MA has stuffed up my knees like an industrial injury.

Does the "Seiza" alone or casual sitting on ground hurt knees more than typical sitting?

Why not rice BTW? potato better?

If you are trained in seiza the back thigh muscles support the body and the posterior hardly touches the feet. If you cant sit it will cut off the blood circulation. That's why ladies where shorts socks in the house.  A normal chair should take the weight off the legs and knees.

I try to avoid starch of any kind in high quantities. Lots of green veg.
