This is an essential guide for all women in their 40s, 50s and 60s. It is a “must read” for women who are looking for natural ways to make changes to lower their risk of osteoporosis. Although some risk factors are genetic or depend on past behaviors, most of them are based on choices we are making now. Florence Piquet translates the science of nutrition into practical advice on diet and explains how to make bone-healthy changes. Bone health depends largely on the acid-base balance.
The sensible diet presented in the book includes eating less animal foods including dairy and red meat; eating five or more daily servings of fruits and vegetables; reducing consumption of caffeine and soda; eating at least one serving of legumes daily.
The book presents 50 tasty, quick and easy cooking recipes designed to strengthen your bones. The bone-protecting score of each recipe has been scientifically computed. It appears as a graduated guide mark.
