Happy Monday everyone. I wanted to post something regarding ‘restrictive diets’ as I’m working on my Be Well Collective. So many people today are cutting out food groups such a dairy. Many people are unaware of the health risks this brings. Calcium is a VITAL mineral we need to help maintain our bone mineral density to help prevent osteoporosis. Many teenagers are below the recommend daily intake for Calcium, which leads to a low bone mass for adulthood! It’s crucial that if you are cutting out dairy from your diet, to see a nutritionist who can advise supplements such as vitamin D (which is vital to aid absorption of calcium) and calcium. Alongside a diet which can support calcium.
Our bones renew 10% each year, so please be aware if you are not eating calcium rich foods, you will be running the risk of not being able to repair and rebuild your bones, leaving holes in them. 🥛 #restrictiveeating #cuttingdairy #thefacts #nutrition
