I read your blog post, but most of my experiences in dining with Japanese and Chinese includes a pot of hot tea with meals.

If sweating made you thin, the American South would not have an obesity epidemic.

comment Are there any specific exercises I can do to strengthen my knee?
On a personal note, I developed ITBS as a result of cycling. ITBS is also common in runners. In working with a physical therapist, I was able to resolve this through targeted hip strengthening work. The solution required correctly identifying the cause of the pain.

I agree with whaley. The knee is a complex joint and knee pain covers a variety of symptoms. And those symptoms indicate different injuries. Some injuries can be solved with physical therapy and others with surgery. Proper treatment is determined by the cause. If your GP was unable to determine a cause, then perhaps try another professional.

comment How to make cardio less of a chore
+1 for interval training - I've used a form of intervals to train for long distance cycling over the past several years. In my experience it's more effective than long, slow training. And @oshirowanen - You might try intervals. You can cut your workout time in half and still achieve the same benefits. And not to say that your longer workouts are bad, but you can add variety (reducing boredom) by incorporating intervals.
