Still have aching hips, knees slightly less so, thighs still just slightly.
For the electrolyte issue, I would recommend a cup or two of regular bouillon like herb ox or knorr. Yes there are trace amts of bad things in them, but they will help within minutes. This is definitely a case of "the dose makes the poison". Bouillon was an essential part of my vlc program.
Heya Choob. Welcome and all that.
Ya dont really like veggies do ya? I dont blame ya I hate them myself however you must up your veggie intake a lot and in a larger variety. Your nutrition will improve as you do.
Mayhaps it is a lack of cooking skill or local availability?
I discovered that you can roast a whole bunch of veggies and they are as tasty as they are simple to make. peppers, onions, garlic, cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini, carrots, parsnips, etc. chop them to your desire, cover with olive oil and spices, toss a bit and then roast in a pan at 400F till done.
I add spinach and kale finely chopped to everything I can, eggs, mincemeat, chicken liver etc. I have discovered so many different greens besides lettuce that you can add in every meal.
Chopped cabbage and onions fried with bacon. a breakfast of champions.
Squashes and pumpkins can be added to stews, chillies and curries.
Do you like salsa? a half cup or more poured on 4 boiled eggs or a can of sardines makes a great meal.
Think of this as you plan your meals, each meal should be some variation of protein, fats and a double handful of veggies.
Doing this, I have found that 2 meals a day have become sufficient and I dont eat until around noon. I still eat 3500 kcal ish a day and am loosing weight slowly. YMMV of course but hey.
I have found that the folks at everyday paleo have a great podcast and their advice is sound, simple and fun.

I didn't like most veggies and hated Brussels Sprouts. This fall I decided to give them a try. Addicted LOL
What I am discovering is I hate over cooked veggies and if I lightly sauté instead I'm finding them quite good. This holds true for broccoli and asparagus as well!!
Favorite breakfast if mine is:
