  • What to eat for an increase in bone density.

    Hey guys.

    I have only one problem since going primal, my wrists are tiny for a 17 year old guy of my size. I eat a lot of protein, plenty of fats and carbs, and don't really miss out on many micro nutrients. I was wondering what I could eat in order to increase my bone density. Dairy (other than butter) is out of question b/c it ruins my intestines. I won't do a calcium supplement ( can't swallow pills) and don't know what else to try. I'm also posting this on exercise so if you have any advice on that, head on over there.

    Thanks.

    Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.
    READ THE BOOK! ...as Robb Wolf says: "Trying to convince people to save their own ass will burn you out."

    Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, and an affront to all I stand for -- the pure enjoyment of food. Anthony Bourdain

    and yes, calories DO count my little piggies

        bone broth.
        As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

          Density and circumference are two different things~ if your bones are 'tiny', maybe it's a heritage/genetics thing~

            THIS!....research even in osteoporosis shows that the MOST important thing in reversing the disease is weight bearing exercise. So just do it. Nutrition matters much less in this particular case.....but at 17yo male you're probably just small boned. Deal with it

              Both of those things, but dude, seriously give it some time. You're just 17, still growing. I was skinny as a youth, & later on due to wrestling & tree climbing etc etc, I was lean through all of high school & college. I couldn't gain/keep much muscle til I hit my late 20s/early 30s.

              Besides, imo speed, flexibility & endurance are more important than bulk. Think lean & mean...

                Here's the thing though, it's only in my wrists (Radius and ulna). All other bones are fine, healthy, and strong. Only my radius hurts when I try to lift a semi-heavy item with just one arm. It only hurts about 2 inches from the wrist, on both arms.

                  is it possible you have some sort of repetitive stress injury?

                    Possibly, but I don't know what could cause it.

                        Westside Barbell. Read every article he's written and make a workout out of it. Squat Bench Deadlift repeat.

                          Do you know you're bones aren't dense enough? I don't think you can grow your bones extra by eating something. But if you know that your bones are very weak I'd exercise.
                          well then
