Osteoporosis

If you suffer from Osteoporosis, you are more likely to break a bone. But this disease does not only target the elderly. Even young athletes who value their strong skeleton can be at risk if they do not watch their diet and lifestyle.

Diets low in the mineral Boron have been linked to cases of Osteoporosis. Boron can be found in these foods:

Almonds

Red Apples

Dried Apricots

Avocado

Banana

Red Kidney Beans

Bran

Brazil Nuts

Broccoli

Carrots

Cashew Nuts

Celery

Chick Peas

Dates

Grapes

Low-Fat cottage Cheese

Low-Fat Milk

Low-Fat Yogurt

Orange Juice

Soy Milk

Cereal

Spinach

Kale

Broccoli

Tofu

Dried beans

almonds

You may have to miss that hamburger cook out. If you suffer from Osteoporosis your doctor will probably tell you to limit your red meat intake. But giving up small pleasures can pay off big time for your bones. To ensure you’re getting enough protein, eat these:

Black Beans

Garbanzo Beans

Kidney Beans

Lentils

Navy Beans

Lima Beans

Soybeans

Tofu

Cheddar Cheese

Cottage Cheese

Eggs

Swiss Cheese

Milk
