Thread: Osteoporosis

  1. #1

    Osteoporosis

    Six years ago I did the HcG diet under a doctor's supervision and did great. I kept all the weight off for 2 years, but now I need to repeat the diet. In the meantime I've been diagnosed with osteoporosis and have been told to try and get more of my required daily calcium intake (1200 mg.) through food rather than just supplements. Even though spinach, broccoli, etc. has calcium, it's no match for calcium through dairy products.

    My question is: do you think I could have 1 cup of skim milk per day (Fairlife milk with more protein and less sugar) in order to fulfill that requirement? I know that this whole topic is hotly debated - whether dairy is the answer - but if you've been told your bones are weak, it's hard to buck the standard treatment. I get 2 injections of Prolia per year. My calcium, magnesium, Vitamin D levels are checked by doctors regularly to make sure they're high enough. I'm 64 years old.
    Thanks for any input anyone can offer!

    The HCG diet is temporary. Forgoing dairy for a month or two is not going to really affect your overall calcium levels that much. But you can try the milk and see how you do.

    What is likely is that your losses could be slower. Dr. Simeons talks about this slower loss in the protocol in regards to his Hindu patients that got their protein from curds rather than following the proteins list in the protocol menus. You can use non-fat cottage cheese as your protein occasionally as well.

    Once you are in P3, you can chow down on the calcium rich foods like sesame seed butter, almond or cashew milk (has more calcium added than is in cow's milk), and other sources not available to you in P2.

    My recent HCG round was with DietDoc. Our site owner has generously arranged for me to earn a small fee if you use my DietDoc or Nu Image Medical link to order your Hcg and supplies.

    All I know is milk, cheese and yogurt are all good food choices because they're high in calcium. You just have to avoid foods high in salt or drink alcohol and beverages, such as coffee, tea and cola because your body can actually lose much needed calcium. I got here the choices of lower fat dairy products. You may check the lists below:

    1. 2%, 1% or skim milk
    2 yogurt with 2% M.F. or less
    3. cheese with 20% M.F. or less

    Have you tried raw carrot. Carrot when it is raw is good for health but when it is cooked it is equivalent to a potato.
