Exercise / nutrition: Lack of exercise leads to demineralization. Several studies have shown that vitamin d deficiency is widespread. Appropriate level of vitamin d and some sun exposure help mineralize the skeleton.An adequate intake of calcium is clearly essential in achieving and maintaining sufficient bone mass. Excessive protein ingestion without appropriate ingestion of calcium and vit d can cause bone loss.

Exercise: Weight bearing exercise is far more important than any foods. Taking calcium and vitamin D will help and you can get both from milk. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
