I have been working out for many years. I have fibromyalgia, lupus, and arthritis. Walking does help. I also use weights. Use wisdom if you have health issues. Listen to your body. It will tell you what is good for you to do Report
Thanks for the great article! :) Report
I was just diagnosed with osteoporosis, beginning in my hips and intermediate in my spine. I have always eaten cheese, yogurt and other dairy products. I eat broccoli, spinach and almonds almost daily. I exercise 6 days a week. I also take levothyroxine for hypothyroid. My doctor said osteoporosis is common in hypothyroid men and women— but she didn’t say that the medication caused it. Report
I am in my 70s and to this day even thinking about milk (any kind- whole, skim, etc.) makes me gag. When I was in fifth and sixth grade my teacher made us line up and show her our lunch trays when we were done eating. She would not dismiss us until every bite was eaten and all the milk in the carton was drunk. Milk gives me stomach cramps and my entire afternoon in school was a horror. I bet if they treated convicts in jail like this they would never want to risk going back to jail once released! Some days I would go to the restroom as soon as I was dismissed and throw up, hoping no one would come in because it would be so humiliating. Horrible memories. Report
Even though I have been strength training for over 10 yrs and eat healthy, I am told my bones are weakening. I'm pumping it up, hopefully without a lot of dairy and eating more leafy greens and broccoli everyday. I hope that works! Report
Alternative “milk” products are also good sources of calcium. An 8 ounce glass of almond milk, unseeetened, original, delivers 45% of the daily calcium requirement, only 30 calories and it tastes great. A win-win-win! Report
Good to know. Report
