Thursday, July 29, 2010
Having a slim body and great views are every woman's dream. To make it happen, they often have no doubt undergo a series of diets to achieve an ideal body shape.

One way is to stop consuming dairy products and do a fad diets, a popular type in the Western diet that promises quickly weight loss. In fact, it is a crudely diet that can cause a woman at risk for osteoporosis or bone loss.

The experts had recently delivered a warning dangers of inappropriate diet. Research shows that nearly a third of British women in their ambition to streamline the body to stop eating some foods that contain calcium. The warning was issued after a week after actress Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that she was suffering from osteopenia, or thinning of the bones that could be the forerunner of osteoporosis. 37 years old actress underwent a strict diet -not consume- low cheese, butter, milk and other foods rich in calcium which is useful for strengthening bones.

A poll in the UK on the eating habits of 4500 women found that 30 percent claimed to avoid all these foods for a slim body. As many as 28 percent of dieters said they stopped eating cheese. While 11 percent said cross out all dairy products from the menu. More than 41 percent no longer eat bread or fortified bread, although this bread is good for bone.

Approximately 26 percent of respondents said they saw only the fat and calorie content on food labels as well as ignoring other information about the nutritional value. In fact, this mistake could have an impact on the failure to build strong bone structure at the age of 35, which leads to an increased risk of osteoporosis later in life.

In fact, this poorly diet was followed by three million people in the UK. Where found more than 230 000 cases of bone fractures each year with the most fragile bone condition found on the wrist, back and hips.

The Food Standards Agency has recommended requirement of calcium per day for adults to reach 700 mg, which can be obtained from various types of food or even through a balanced diet.

Calcium is found in bread and dairy products and can also be found in broccoli, cabbage, and nuts. Meanwhile, to increase mineral intake, you can eat sardines or fish eaten with bones.
