Dietitian Designed Eating Plan for Osteoporosis
The goal of the "Food 4 Osteoporosis Eating Plan" is to provide an easy to follow and prepare, food specific approach to fighting osteoporosis.
The Food 4 Osteoporosis approach is moderation and enjoyment in eating, with a focus on consuming a variety of nutrient dense foods rather than on individual nutrients or “miracle” foods. Osteoporosis research suggests that the composition of your overall diet is more relevant to your bone health and fracture risk reduction than individual factors or nutrients. With all the conflicting and confusing nutrition research and recommendations it can be hard to know what to eat. The Eating Plan is based on a Dietitian's interpretation and application of the evolving osteoporosis nutrition research. As future research further clarifies the optimal dietary intake for strong bones, the Eating Plan recommendations will be modified to provide the most up to date scientific guidelines.
The Eating Plan outlines exactly what to eat each day, meets your calcium needs with a variety of foods, assures an alkaline focused diet and meets protein needs. It is a way of eating that can also reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer's Disease.
