Well since my surgery I suffer with heartburn so I take tums for calcium and relief!

One bite, one day, one pound at a time. Remember you are worth the effort!

There has been talk about calcium supplements causing problems - but as far as I am aware - that is only if they are taken to excess - like everything else -excess calcium can cause trouble in the body - but that is only in EXCESS -
You can track your calcium intake by setting it in your nutrition tracker -
Always remember that calcium doesn't work alone in the body - it needs other nutrients before it is absorbed and before it can work.

being allergic to dairy and wheat at the very least, I just do the best I can by eating lots of greens and broccoli. I used to take supplements but someone posted an article that said that according to new research, supplements raise the chance of Heart attacks in post menopausal women. however, I'm thinking maybe I should start them back up again.

These do help. Do you have favorite ways to get calcium in your daily food menu? I do like sardines but never think of eating them...I will now. Thanks for you help.

Foods high in calcium include cheese, yogurt, milk, sardines, dark leafy greens, fortified cereals, soybeans and enriched breads, grains and waffles.

Thats the basic answer. If you look on WebMD they have a good article I'll see if I can get the link for you. At least the above gives you a general idea of what foods can help. Hope you like sardines! lol

Yogurt, greens like collards spinach or turnip, cottage cheese, skim milk, nonfat cheese. Does that help some?

Can you all give me suggestions on ways to get more calcium in daily? I do take a supplement each day but I would like to get more in my food.
