How to Avoid Osteoporosis
welcome to dishing up nutrition with licensed, nutritionist and dietitians from nutritional weight and wellness. We explained the connection between what you eat and how you feel. Stay tuned for practical real life solutions for healthier living through real food nutrition. You got to make a mom last just getting down cobblestone vote this morning and welcome to dishing up nutrition. It seems like on a daily basis were told to eat better and exercise to keep our heart healthy or just to prevent type two diabetes. But are we ever really told how to eat better to build strong bones to be honest, it hits not really a very common conversation that we have with our doctor or any part of our medical team. Sometimes we're told weight bearing exercises are recommended, but sadly, most people just don't know what foods they should eat to build strong bones, or what foods actually deplete their bones of key minerals. If you're concerned about getting osteoporosis than stay tuned. Because. Because we're going to be sharing what foods to include in your diet and what foods to avoid good morning everyone. I'm Caroline Hudson. And I'm a registered and licensed dietitian, and I work with clients in our Eden prairie location and teach classes for businesses and community groups, and I've been a dietitian for let's just say over thirty five years, and I personally follow an eating plan that keeps my bones, strong and healthy, and with all of this snow and freezing rain this past winter the winter from I don't know where it was horror a ball, right? At least here in Minnesota. You know, I was really worried about slipping and falling. We had a lot of ice in a lot of snow. So I want my bones to be strong and healthy. And now, so if I did fall, I wouldn't end up with fractured bone. In the hospital. So joining me today to share some of her wisdom about what we can do to avoid osteoporosis is Melanie Beasley who's also a registered and licensed Taya Titian. Good morning. Melanie, good morning. Caroline. And all of our listeners. I have been a dietitian also for over thirty years, and I see clients in our lakeville and mendota heights locations. Recently understanding bone dents at the having strong bones is very near and dear to me in the past. I had taken several medications through sort of my journey through cancer and back pain, and a whole host of things that left my bones. Weak and fragile. So I know all too, well, the importance of having strong bones, which is why I'm also in the process of rebuilding my own bones. Some people have been told that it is impossible, and I've been told this as well to reverse osteoporosis. Well, as dietitians at nutritional weight and wellness. We know better right Carolyn. Yep. We sure do. So I'm here to tell you. I am on a personal mission to put my own osteoperosis into remission and return to having strong, dense bones. I am thoroughly convinced that we all need to have the belief that what we are eating makes a big difference between having weakened fragile bones or having strong, flexible bones. So I'm very very passionate about helping my clients and our listeners to understand the importance of their bone health. Yeah. The first thing we really want all of you listeners to realize that it it takes more than just adding Cal a calcium supplement to build strong bones. I think that's kind of new information for a lot of people. They just think and doctors to do what a doctor say take just take a calcium supplement. They don't tell you what kinda counts up of. And they don't tell you anything else. Right. So, you know, the eating plan we're going to share with you today has proven over and over to produce results. In fact, we have had many many clients company-wide who were originally diagnosed with osteoperosis, but then totally reverse their test results while Caroline say that again, we have had many many clients company-wide who were originally diagnosed with osteoporosis and osteo PINA. But. Totally reversed their test results. So they now have normal bone density as a result of following both our food plan and our supplement recommendations, so you know, did this reversal from osteoperosis to normal strong, bone density happen overnight. Of course, not it never does. There aren't magic, you know, instant solutions. So it wouldn't be any faster than it would take someone to lose forty or fifty pounds. And what I say to clients a lot of time as okay, how long do you think it took you to lose this bone density? It didn't happen. The day. You had your first Dexsa scan right right place over a longer period of time. So in reality there just aren't any quick fixes, but as our clients repair their phones structure, they also. Also repair their metabolism their memory, their moods. And now they have a little spring in their staff, and they're feeling. Great hope. Yeah. So that was really unexpected. From for a lot of our clients to have that added benefit of, you know, their spring in their step and their memory and their moods also improving, but it's very very very exciting for them when I think of that little spring in their step. I think of my mother, okay, she's ninety one and she has still a wonderful sense of adventure. She hikes the lake superior trails. She kayaks on its shores. And I'm happy to say, my mother is a very good eater. And if my mother can do this and follow a real food eating plan and maintain good bone health at her age you can. Into. So it just takes a strong. Why why am I doing this? And some really really good nutrition advice. Good nutrition advice, Jacek take a calcium or chew at Tom's. Right. Right. Right. Oh my goodness. The to atop something with homes, and I'm a scary one. I'm an agreement with you. You know, when I when I had my diagnosis, the doctor, you know, in originally just said, you know, chew some TOMS, and we want to push on a bone building medication. But knowing what I know through the research, I opted to go the nutritional weight and wellness way. There was also a myth going around for many years that we shouldn't eat too much protein. Have you heard that? Oh, yeah. Because supposedly excess protein contributed to osteoperosis or this was the thought that was a total myth. You talk about some poor nutritional advice the theory was that protein increases acid load, which could cause the body to Leach. Calcium from the bones, which you know in reality is not the protein that increases the acid load by it's the process carbs and the sugar. Melanie, better say that one again, it is let me re let me revisit that. It is the processed carbs and the sugar. So what am I talking about? I'm talking about the large bowl of cereal or the toast in orange juice. The low fat fruit flavored high sugar yogurts the the big bags of popcorn. That's what increases the acid load, which in turn leeches, the calcium and magnesium from the bones. So study after study clearly reports that soda and those high sugar coffee drinks, those fat free cookies and crackers. Those are the bone destroyers in two thousand seventeen a review was published about research pertaining to the amount of protein. Consumed in relation to bone health. And this research found that increase protein intake does not harm bones and the research concluded that high protein intake, actually, improved bone health. Well, as a matter of fact, one study found that low protein intake is often observed and patients who have had hip fractures. So a good question for our listeners is if you have the beginning stages of low density, low bone density, how much protein are you eating h day? Are you eating two to three ounces of protein for breakfast or an maybe four ounces for launch and four ounces for dinner at that up? That's only like ten ounces, and I am working with clients who skip breakfast, right? What's of our clients breakfast before they start seeing us and they have two to three ounces of protein. On their salad for lunch, and maybe a small chicken breast at dinner. So when we come back from break, we'll discuss that and a little more detail. So good morning everyone. And you're listening to dishing up nutrition last week on our show was about how to control cravings. I find that some of my clients talk badly about themselves when they're out of control with their eating. They tell themselves that they are weak willed or too busy and don't have time to eat or they get distracted and just forget to eat which can lead to cravings at but at nutritional weight and wellness we teach people to write down what they eat the following day. And it's really simple and very doable habit. That puts the client in control one of my clients said, I don't feel very good about myself when I'm not in control of my cravings the habit of just writing down. What you eat the very next day is. Habit that will empower you and put you in control, not your cravings. And we'll be right back. This summer with our lingers you can five from Minneapolis, Saint Paul direct to Dublin Ireland the gateway to Europe enjoy Ireland's warm hospitality, legendary sites, cozy pope's food history and culture or connect over twenty-five really cool European destinations like Amsterdam Paris and London. Whether you make Dublin your final destination or a stopover in your journey through Ireland or into Europe smart says it's time for Europe smart-size air Lingus book now at air, Lingus dot com. You know as dietitians and nutritionists we don't just see people how to eat imbalance by eating protein vegetables and good fat, really important information. But we also teach clients how to think about food and how to practice behaviors that support their health. So how do you save yourself? I'm important enough to plan and prepare good food for myself. So my brain is not cluttered with where can I get my next sugar fix? I prefer to think of my planning and preparing food as myself care plan. And that helps me be a master over my cravings over my health, and especially over my bone density, eating real food several times a day is the real answer, isn't that? Right boy. So before we went to break we were talking about protein, bone health and protein intake. So some people might have you know, total of about ten ounces in a day. But we're often working with clients skip breakfast, and then only have two or three ounces of protein at their lunch, maybe on a salad or something like that. And maybe a small chicken breasts, which again might be just like two or three ounces for dinner. So they might only be getting like six ounces of protein every day not enough nowhere near enough. So to support bone health most people need at least twelve ounces, and it's interesting to know that as we age, and this is going to be a shocker for a lot of people we actually need more protein to maintain our muscles. And support our metabolism. Keep our immune system functioning and supply, the amino acids to have a good, memory and positive moods. That's something to really think about is. Especially when we see seniors in our office in clinic, we see that they are. Scaling back on protein, which is the exact opposite of what you're wanting for their health. Right, right. Eating planning. A protein is a good thing there many many benefits of eating an ample amount of protein. Some of the reasons let's let's talk about some of those reasons to include protein in your diet. Well, one adequate amounts of protein have a positive effect on our muscle mass. So we need protein to keep our muscles. As we age too. Many studies have found that protein increases energy in our bodies protein, actually increases your metabolism by up to thirty five percent for two to three hours after eating it. And I find I if I'm not getting that protein, and my energy there. Oh, I feel that all the time when I if I'm low in my protein intake, so and I think are particularly our weight loss the clients. They're checks kinda shocked on that. Statistic. Right. It raises our metabolism injuries by thirty five percent. So who I wasn't eating enough protein before. But now, I am sure going to try to eat enough. It's working for us. Also protein keeps us full longer than carbs and four replacing process carbs with protein and fat like we were talking about it supports that weight loss, and it reduces insulin resistance, many of you may be wondering how does replacing process carbs with protein and fat help with weight loss. Well, eating sufficient protein reduces your appetite because protein takes longer to break down than most carbohydrates. Therefore, it is more satiated clients report feeling fuller longer and having fewer cravings for sugar when they eat enough protein. In addition, we need. Efficient protein to maintain and grow our muscles. The more muscle that we have the better our metabolism works because muscles help us. Burn more calories. So we want to share some cold hard facts about osteoporosis, osteoporosis is responsible for two million broken bones every year, but eighty percent of older adults aren't even tested or treated for us year paralysis. So here's another fact men are more likely to break a bone, then to get prostate cancer. Oh, that's interesting. Isn't it? It is interesting and to say that they're not being tested at the rate. They should be tested. I want my clients to be empowered on sort of a vitamin d Nazi and flowing density Nazi. So I always encourage my clients, no way. No, you're vitamin d. And after the age of fifty get it get a Dexsa scan. It's just a great baseline. But here's a fact that I feel our listeners need to hear out of three hundred thousand hip fractures, every year one quarter or one out of four of those people end up in nursing homes. It's a big deal it. Oh, it's huge and half of those people who ended up in nursing homes never regain their previous function. This being the case osteoperosis is a serious problem. Caroline. Yes. It really is as dietitians weaned. No real food matters when it comes to our bone health. So have you ever been out walking in the woods and stumbled across a leg bone for a dead deer or some other canot dead animal for those who have did you ever notice when you looked at that or touch that bone that it was hard and really no longer had any kind of life. So when the deer was alive that leg bone was actually alive. Also, even though it may seem like our bones are not alive and growing. They are they should we should be thinking them about them as alive so common question. We get is how do you feed your bones to keep them, growing and rebuilding? So there's really a very natural rhythm to bone growth. First of all there is a slow process of the bone breaking down, and that's natural. Well, and then to fill in the broken down areas new bone is grown to replace that old on healthy bone. So this is the breaking down and rebuilding process. Many of the pharmaceutical medications for bones, actually, stop the re growth of the bone. So the end result is that you have those old bones and that those old bones easily fracture into many pieces. So we need our bones to be flexible and alive real food keeps your bones, strong, dense and flexible, if you fall, you will want your bones to be flexible enough, so that they bend an have enough give so that they will bend and give and give but not break right now. And I think that's a concept. That's a kind of a foreign concept for a lot of people your bones are alive there. And they're constantly. I always describe it as you have think of little pacman that go along and they eat up the dead bone. And then you have bricklayers go down in lay down new bone. Now. That's a good visual. Trip that process with creating more dead bone, which is really what some of these medications do. Yeah. And a lot of people don't understand that. So, you know, I think that's a really really important concept because doctors will just automatically say, oh, you need to go on one of these, you know, bone building medications where it's it really isn't healthy bone anymore. It's kinda dead brittle bone, right? It's true. As dietitians. We know it takes about twenty different nutrients to keep these bones healthy. So let's talk about the seven most important ones. I'm sure the first thing that comes to mind when we talk about nutrients weenie calcium for our bones. If that's a true story. Yes. Calcium is one of the many vital nutrients, we need for a bones when we work with clients who are experienced low bone density. We always start with food. I some foods that are high in calcium and can be easily absorbed are. Leafy green vegetables, like kale, spinach, collard greens, almonds are high in calcium as well. As my new love, I found is sardines with bones and also broccoli when you saw Pai. Those green vegetables in butter or coconut oil the oil helps with the absorption of that calcium that you're eating. So it's already time for a second brek break, a Melanie. So you are listening to dishing up nutrition, and we're discussing how to avoid osteoporosis research has found that you build about ninety percent of your bone mass. By the time you are eighteen to twenty years old. So we know that pop leaches minerals from your bones. We also know that sugar leaches minerals from your bones. And we also know that following one of those low fat diets low calorie eating plan is deficient in adequate vitamins and minerals to build those. Owns. So how do you educate your young adults about the benefits of eating real food slow? Let me suggest treating your teen to the weight and wellness series that starts on may seventh fine up now, and we have an early bird special and save fifty dollars.

That's what they preach at nutritional weight and wellness and Christie is one of their success stories who proves it. Yeah. I battled my weight all my life. Tried many different diets and then had gastric bypass surgery but gained all the weight back. And that's when you heard about the twelve week nutrition for weight loss clash they have at nutritional weight and wellness. I did I heard about it on dishing up nutrition the radio show and decided that it was a good thing for me to try and how did it work it worked great? I took the nutrition for weight loss twelve week class. I lost forty pounds. And more importantly, I feel good. I'm healthy. No aches and pains. I sleep better than I ever have.

Find out more weight and wellness dot com or give them a call six five one six nine nine three four three eight. It was interesting to read that eight percent of all cancers in the US are linked to excess body weight. According to the Cancer Society, researchers that excess body weight is eight percent of all cancers so social social compared with people of normal weight. Obese patients are more likely to see their cancer comeback, overweight. Young people are developing weight related cancer, including colorectal cancer. I encourage. Everyone to sign up for our ten dollar spring class called nutrition to reduce your cancer risk. Maybe taken this class could be a family event.

And I thank the participants really enjoyed all of the knowledge that they got they certainly stayed after and talked to me for good half an hour, forty five minutes. So it it's really a well received class all of the classes are I really think that cancer touches everybody. Oh, yeah anymore. I know I had to kind of go through my story. And you know, this of fifty percent of people basically are going to probably, you know, have some some kind of. Cancer. So yeah, it's it's a big one. So let's get back to our topic today about osteoporosis, bone and bone health. So one reason we always recommend to eat protein, vegetable carbs and healthy fat at every meal is because it takes magnesium to help with the absorption of calcium. So where do we get magnesium from mainly from meat and nuts a bone building? Breakfast might be a Turkey Patty with spinach or kale sauteed and coconut oil or butter with a half a Cup of sweet potato which will supply potassium and vitamin C. So potassium and vitamin C are two other nutrients for strong bones, cereal, bread, bag goals, pasta, chips, crackers, and baked goods are those. Nutrient robbers for your bones. So all of these foods, actually, Leach key nutrients from our bones, of course, vitamin d vitamin DS another important nutrient for bone health when we're helping clients restore new build their bone density. We write a food plan that will provide the necessary nutrients, they need to build healthy bones. Oftentimes, we need to recommend supplements to support that bone growth. Yeah. I'm always surprised at how many people don't know their vitamin d status. And then in I say, well, just ask for it on your net. Physical a whole my doctor won't do that Sommese. Yeah. It really is. So many of you may be asking can't get enough calcium from drinking and extra glass of milk. But I wanna share with you some new research study that was just published. On March twenty six two thousand nineteen found that a greater intake of milk and dairy products was not really associated with lower risk of osteoporosis and hip fractures. So are you wondering if not milk, then what is a better drink to have daily on previous dishing up nutrition shows, we have recommended making and drinking bone broth? And once again, we're recommending this simple, but very effective habit. Drink eight to twelve ounces of homemade bone broth every day for better bones. I never missed my bone. Broth, even if I don't have time to make it. There are places you can actually pick it up. And I'm I am vigilant about getting this in and it's delicious bone broth support, your skin, and your, ligaments, and your tendons, your Cartlidge, and your bones drinking bone. Broth sounds like a habit. We all need to practice, right? Yep. If you want a recipe and how to make bone broth go to weight and wellness dot com and click on recipes on the blue header at the top. You know, Carolyn I always keep a little graveyard of bones. Everything I eat in my freezer. I love that a graveyard on. I think if anyone ever, you know, Pete their head in my freezer. They would really be suspicious of me, but just throw those bones in the freezer, and I get a pound of bones in there and make some bone. Broth. Yeah. I do the same thing. But I've never referred to it as a graveyard. I'm going to have to man. Okay. Your vitamin d Nazi and you have a graveyard of bones in your freezer. I love it. So we've talked a number of times about the benefits of vitamin d on every aspect of your body and your brain. So we really encourage you to have your vitamin D level tested, at least yearly. The range that we recommend for good health is between fifty and eighty even at level thirty you were still considered in the risk range. So most meet people need to take somewhere between four and five thousand milligrams of vitamin d daily to support absorption of calcium into your bones. And I I like possess cry vitamin d as like the key then unlocks your bones. So that all those other really good minerals can get in and start building the bones. It it takes a team to build a bone. Yep. You know, it's not it's not just calcium. Right. Yes. And earlier we mentioned that our bones are live active tissue and need at least thirty different nutrients to remain healthy. And that's throughout our entire lives. We have to be purposeful about getting these new transcend, our bones are constantly breaking down and rebuilding. It's called bone remodeling. So just taking a calcium supplement alone is not enough to keep our bones. Healthy I have some clients who think well, I'm drinking calcium fortified juice. That's usually a poorly absorbable calcium. They throw in those places. So considering that fact, I would like to talk about his supplement that I have been taking to help restore my bone density and bone health the past few months at neutral key. We've been working on a total bone building supplement called key osteo. Plus, this is exciting for those of us that are really on a mission to get those bones and a good healthy place. Key asked you plus is full of key nutrients, and is tailored to support your bones. You don't have to think about it because our bones need twenty different nutrients to build them rebuild themselves and Chiasso, plus has this convenient AM packet of key, vitamins and PM packet. Of key vitamins. There are some other highlights of Chiasso. Plus each packet contains a natural form of vitamin k two which is so important for our bones. Of course, vitamin d like you mentioned Carolyn was added. In addition to the most absorbable form of calcium. If you want more information about this amazing bone building product, call our office. At six one five six nine nine five one. I think yeah. That's five one six nine nine three four three eight to ask our questions any questions that you have they'll help you to answer those and I've been taking this product. I really believe when I have my next decks scan it will be very impactful and show a remarkable improvement in my bones. Yes. So as many of you heard a say before more women die each year from a bone fracture than those who die of breast and uterine cancer combined. So bone health is so vitally important and not to be taken lightly. So we need to be proactive to ensure you have strong, healthy bones. And so we would like you to call six five one six nine nine three four three eight and set up an appointment with one of our dietitians or nutritionists to get you started. So. So I know that Melanie I have had so many clients that have come to me with their osteo PINA or osteoporosis diagnosis, and we get them going on what we I we fix their diet their food intake one of the first things we do is we check their protein the protein protein intake. And usually, you know, usually, our clients are over fifty you know, when they're presenting with this and some of them, it's their very first Dexsa scan that they've had and they're just shocked the go. I I don't know why I've eaten healthy all of my life. You know? But then we find their proteins alot. We almost always find that their fat is too low. So we didn't really talk a whole lot about fat. So when we come back from our break, we'll talk a little bit more about fat, and what kinds. The fat. We should be eating. So you're listening to dishing up nutrition next week. We have a special show with a very special gas, actually my old high school him. I went to school with Greg Peterson.

I love that we have free shipping. Yep. As always if you have questions give us a call at the office at six five one six nine nine three four three eight won't Melanie before we went to break we were talking about again, going back to diet and bone building. Things that we can do in our diet. And you know, I say diet, but really this is a life long. Eating plan is an I really I really try to express that to my clients. I'm passionate about this is the way we should be eating always all the time. This is not really what people think of as a diet, but it's an eating plan for health and most of our clients Wednesday embrace it they will say I could do this forever. I can do this. I'm that hungry. The way you're supposed to and you're not supposed to be hungry. And one of the things that really helps us with our bone structure and our bone health is eating healthy fats. Right. So we don't really talk too much about that yet. So one thing I always do is. I get a variety of healthy fats in my diet. So all of oil butter coconut oil. Avocados all lives. I have to put a plug in for bacon fat. Oh, baby. Of course, I did not have time to bake this smoking before I got on the road to come here. But yeah, bacon is one of my favorites. The only thing with bacon. No. Is we try to tell people have the naturally, Kurt cured. Right. So now nitrates nitrites. So so that's really good. And I I mean, what doesn't taste better when you're cooking with butter or adding butter, you know, to your vegetables, or whatever it is not the fake butters. Yeah. No, not that. I can't believe we wanna believe what we're eating you one of the things I did the other day that I just I loved kind of a blue cheese fan, and I can I can do dairy. So I'm really lucky I mixed a little bit of blue cheese with some cream from whole whipping cream and some cream cheese. And I threw it in the freezer, and then I put it on my stake. It was so good. I'm telling you. I'm going to be doing that. Again. It's my blue cheese ice cream. Oh my goodness. I bet we have some some people rummaging to see if they have those ingredients right now in their refrigerator. I can't do dairy. So one of my favorite ways to sort of Josiah my meal is of course, I love the bacon fat. But I love to mix butter and coconut oil in with a little bacon fat to get that flavor. And then a roast my vegetables at mix kinda malicious. Yeah. The cauliflower roasted in that. Ooh. I can I'm gonna have to call them and have some of that good. And that's a way to get that bone building fat in there. So people are always surprised that when we're making the matrix of bone and we're doing the remodeling is that we have to get enough protein. But we have to get that healthy fat. And we absorb vitamin d a lot better when we are getting those good fatten them. So it all works very center -gistically to build those bones and the bones take a while to both breakdown and build up. Right. I it takes about ten years to build a skeleton. So at the age of fifty you have built for skeletons all right through think about. Yeah. And I think that people don't really realize, you know, that whole alive thing in the breaking down. They just think that oh, your bones, your bones, and they just keep on, you know, being the same as they always are. Well, they're not an until you have a broken bone that used start paying attention to what's happening because I I always say paying really motivates people. Yes. Yeah. Exactly who wants who wants that who wants to. And I am always thinking, you know, if that's what our job is is to start a have the nutritional health back of our patients or our clients because we don't want them to miss anything that could impact their health. And so I say it takes a team and we're part of that team. So that you don't have to think about the nutrition that's our job, right? And we just imparted to you. I have several clients being cancer survivor that have cancer either an early diagnosis and they come in. They want to be walked through that journey with solid nutritional plan or they've just finished up with their cancer. And they're coming into their ready to make sure that their health is on point. So one of the things that I have them think about is looking at the medications, you know, like I have right had to do. And what are some of those that are? Damaging the Boehner thinning the bone. And then there are steps that we can take to definitely protect those bones. So that they don't come out on the other side of this journey with another health crisis that they have to now address. Right, right. I know one thing that I often clients will come into my office, and they've been on like the acid reducers, the, you know, anti acid reflux medications for ten or fifteen or twenty years. Yeah. And what they don't realize is that actually in hypocrites, the absorption of many of the nutrients that were talking about for bone building in. Oh, so and people are thinking again, they're thinking back. Oh, well, I built my bone already. I don't need to really worry about that. Right. You know, I the most women know that at menopause, you need to start worrying about that. But they don't think about all these other implications. All these other things that they may be doing that are harming the overall structure of their bone, and they're not rebuilding. They've now they've got old Mon medicines have side effects. Yeah. Sometimes we need them. Oh, yeah. Sometimes we can work on things like digestive health right to we can get off of those bone damaging medicine. That's really the first one. I get everybody else of those acid reflux mad. Oh, you know in that other red flag is when we don't have good digestive health which is a red flag. You're not absorbing the nutrients that we need to nourish the entire bodies is physically the bones. So we've got to be able to have a great digestive health to absorb the nutrients and the supplements that you are taking. Absolutely. So you were talking before we came into the studio this morning about a client story. Yeah. I wanna share that with us. Yes. I had a client. She's very very dear to me. You we walked through her first diagnosis of cancer. And then she went through deation, she went through chemotherapy. And so that nutritional support became very vital to her working within the parameters of how you feel when you're on chemotherapy.
