  • There are many articles these days on the Alkaline Diet and Osteoporosis. My information on certain foods is different from yours. People seem to disagree on which foods are alkaline and which are acidifying. They do, though, recommend a 60% alkaline and 40% acidic diet plan, and this sounds reasonable to me. That would include nine+ servings of fruits and vegetables, which many nutritionists are recommending now.
  • Great information. Thanks so much! I also take supplements.
  • Wonderful information. Anything to get moving and keep moving.
  • Great information! Thanks!
  • Good info to review as I help my hubby with his Osteoarthritis.
  • Becky's article stresses the importance of beta-carotene in your diet but the SparkPeople Nutrition tracker does not include beta-carotene. It is not even listed as an option that you can manually add to your tracker. Would it be possible to add beta-carotene to the tracker, SparkPeople?

  • a table full of omega-3-containing food.... and chia seeds are not even mentioned????

    chia has roughly 8-times more omega-3 than salmon (without the danger of mercury poisoning that seafood bears).
    i personally prefer adding a "small salmon steak" (=1 tbs chia seeds soaked for 15 mins in a cup of water) to my breakfast-cereal in the morning, that's my omega-3's done and i feel satisfied and content until noon and longer.
  • I will be 63 in a few days and was diagnosed with diabetes about 8 years ago so I have been gradually improving my eating habits. I don't eat sugary foods now, try to avoid gluten, and no longer eat meat all of which has been a great help for my blood sugars and health in general. However, I am still having trouble losing weight and the arthritis I have now in knees and hips makes it tough to get as much exercise as I used to. Before, I could walk 5k with no problem but not so easy now. I am going to get going on vitamins C, D, Beta Carotene, and Omega 3 fatty acids. I take glucosamine chondroitin-MSM now. I've read conflicting info on it but I still think it helps me feel better (less pain) after a few weeks of consistent use. TUBLADY--Big congrats on all your hard work! You inspire me!
  • I knew they would get meat and fish in the list somewhere. Too much meat and fish is what my doctor said caused my osteoarthritis. I feel much better after adopting a plant based diet.
