Bone Healthy Diet

In general, a bone healthy diet is consuming enough calories for adequate weight, and the optimal amounts of protein, calcium and vitamin D. Consuming the recommended number of servings of fruits and vegetables (2 ½ cups vegetables and 2 cups of fruit for a 2,000 calorie intake), and following the recommendation of no more than 1,500 milligrams (1.5 grams) of sodium per day also contribute to a bone healthy diet.

To maintain bone health, it is important to consume a variety of foods in amounts recommended for your age, gender, height, and level of physical activity. To begin with, individuals need to find a weight that they are comfortable with and that falls within reasonable limits for their body type .
