How do Diet & Exercise affect bones & muscles?

HOW DO DIET AND EXERCISE AFFECT BONES AND MUSCLES?

As we get older, we lose bone strength and muscle mass. Here are some ways to keep bones and muscles strong:

  1. Eat enough protein.
  2. Include calcium in your diet. The recommendation is that you get 1200 mg calcium a day, either through your diet or supplements or both.
  3. Include Vitamin D in your diet. You need 800 to 2000 IU vitamin D from your diet, supplements or both. Dietary sources of vitamin D include fortified milk and fish (salmon, mackerel, herring).
  4. Do weight-bearing activities like walking or lifting.
  5. Do exercises that help build muscles.
