If you are trying to enjoy the benefits of your green coffee diet, you could run into some roadblocks along the way - especially with exercise. Some people who are limited in their cardio activity include those with joint problems, namely people who have bad knees.

Whether you have suffered an injury, deal with rheumatoid or osteoarthritis or are simply heading into your golden years and your knees aren't what they used to be, you might be looking for ways to alleviate your knee pain and keep up a weight loss plan.

There are certain exercises, such as running and some team sports, that can bend the knee too far or put too much body weight on the joint - which can result in some pretty severe pain. Luckily, there are several cardio exercises that go easy on your knees while still burning loads of calories. Here are a few to get you started:

Swimming
Ever heard of low-impact exercises being good for your knees? How about no impact at all? Swimming isn't just a perfect full-body exercise that elongates your frame and burns a lot of fat, it also puts no pressure on your joints. Grab a suit and hop in - the water's fine.

Dancing
Whether it's Zumba, barre, salsa or modern dance classes, you can have a lot of fun, shed some pounds and take pressure off of your knees by busting a move.

Biking
You don't have to sign up for the Tour de France to lose some weight. Just a 30 minute bike ride can burn up to 250 calories, according to Gaiam Life, and you will take all of the exertion off of your knees and onto your upper body.

Elliptical
Skip the treadmills at the gym and head for the elliptical machines if you have bad knees. You can burn the same amount of calories on both machines, only the elliptical will never have your feet leaving the pedals - leaving your joints as light as a feather.
