In brief: Yes
A diet rich in calcium (dairy, dark green vegetables, fortified foods) and vitamin d (fish, eggs, liver, fortified foods) can help.
A little sun exposure stimulates your skin to make vitamin d. Avoid or limit smoking, alcohol, and sodas. Muscle building exercises stimulate bones to take in more calcium. Many prescription meds can cause bone loss; talk to your doctor about these.
