Did you know that when you lose weight you are jeopardizing your bone health? Weight reduction diets are becoming more and more a trend in the region. Every day you hear of people following a certain diet to lose a few kilos. Part of the weight lost during dieting is bone loss. Weight loss diets that are not adequate in calcium content may lead to calcium resorption from the bones and thereby bone loss. This is particularly true during fad dieting, or dieting without professional advice which is not accompanied by adequate calcium intake and regular exercise, both of which help to build bone mass.
How does an unbalanced diet affect bone health?
- Post-menopausal women, according to a recent study, are at a higher risk of losing bone when on severe caloric restriction, because they tend to be less active, they have less estrogen production, and they consume less calcium especially during dieting.
- Teens are mostly concerned as they tend to follow fad diets. They are also at a critical age of bone building, so severe weight loss could lead to estrogen deficiency and cessation of menstruation. This could cause serious damage to their bone health.
When you are on a diet, don’t starve yourself!
Remember: A healthy eating plan coupled with exercise will help you reach your weight loss goal and preserve your bones!
