Yogurt and cheese (depending on the brand) can be excellent sources of calcium. I have some mozzarella cheese that's got 40% of my daily calcium.

Oh shoot, I should have mentioned I love green vegetables, in fact kale is my favorite. I love all vegetables and eat many of them daily!

There's nothing wrong with taking calcium supplements along with Vit A and D, to absorb more calcuim more efficiently. Excess protein gets turned to fat in the body, but if you use low fat sources and count dairy protein in your diet, there should be no problem with it. I included a site I found. I hope this helps.

Dark leafy vegetables are the best source of calcium. Dairy is not a good source of calcium because it is high in protein. Any protein we eat beyond what we need is changed to sugar but the process is acidic. Our bodies draw calcium from our bones to neutralize acid so diary isn't a good way to get calcium. Countries with the highest consumption of dairy are also the countries with the highest rates of osteoporosis.

I thought I was okay on calcium too until I seen my doctor and she put me on calcium and vitamin D. I am a milk drinker, love cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese is one of my favorite foods, but I still needed a supplement.Thanks for this post it reminded me to take my vitamins.

I do not drink milk but do drink Almond Milk but somehow my calcium intake needs some help!
I checked to see what I can eat that will increase my calcium - anyone with similar challenge?
