Ask the Trainer: Ways to work calcium into diet

Q: I am a 34-year old woman and I do not consume a lot of calcium in my diet. Is this something I should be concerned about?

A: Calcium is something that every woman needs to make sure she has in her diet. Not only does calcium help prevent bone disease, such as osteoporosis, but it also plays a vital role in burning calories and fat.

Calcium changes the efficiency of weight loss. When the overall calorie consumption is accounted for, calcium not only helps to keep weight in check but also can be associated with greater decreases in body fat. A low calcium intake is associated with greater tendency to gain weight, particularly in women.

I would encourage you to consume more calcium-rich foods such as cheese, milk, dried legumes, broccoli and most dark green leafy vegetables. You will have some noticeable results.
