I had almost the same day...need 100-150, and had 45. Crazy! Who knew how little calcium was in my daily diet...I certainly didn't.

I have to supplement to get my calcium in. I can only tolerate dairy in small doses or it upsets my stomach. My multivitamin has 40% of the RDA. If I'm under 100% by the end of the day, I take another supplement, either a calcium tablet or a Viactiv chocolate.

MGMswife-You can add supplements to the nutrition tracker so it will calculate it for you. Just add the supplement like you would a food that isn't in the tracker. I have a couple supplements I do that for.

I wonder if we need to calculate the supplements too? I know that I do NOT get enough calcium-I'm interested to see how much I really do get.

Jesus, You be lifted high!

This is interesting...I wonder what my average intake is. Good call!

This is an interesting challenge. I have adjusted my nutrition tracker, and I will see how I do this week. We are great cheese lovers at my house, and I need to pick up some yogurt, so I imagine it should be ok. But as a dieter's friend...that I didn't know. Thanks!

Your challenge this week is to get your calcium.

We all know that calcium contributes to healthy bones and teeth, but did you know itís also a dieterís friend? I did some research. One study found that women that had the highest calcium intake lost the most weight and body fat on weight loss programs, regardless of exercise level. Another study indicates that high levels of calcium may prevent fat storage and boost metabolism.

You can easily track calcium intake by adding it to your nutrition tracker. Just go to your nutrition page and click on change nutrition goals. Click on add another nutrient to track and when the popup window loads, select calcium from the drop down list and click save. The popup window will close. Then just click save your changes on the nutrition setup page and you're set.

Sources of calcium
Milk
Yogurt
Cheese
Kale
Spinach
Broccoli
