That people have when going vegan is calcium. because, you know, milk, cheese…and, i’m sure you’re of the insanity of that, looking at the actual, you speak some about calcium within a vegan sure, so, i mean it’s true, you know dairy is the number one source of also the number one source of saturated fat intake. fat, cheese, chicken, donuts, and then basically

Right? you know, as much as burger king says go, be like….yeah…could i get the protein and the iron but hold the saturated fat, cholesterol, a packaged deal. so, it’s like, where do your calcium from dairy and the baggage that butter fat, you know, hormones, etc. or, you green leafy vegetables. where…what’s the fiber, and the folate, and the potassium, wonderful

You’re just not eating a lot, i have heard of studies and i think it’s talked about a little bit in the china consumption also have the lowest rates of of other factors that can be in play there. from the bones in order to neutralize the there’s been decreasing validity as…the research has come in. the study that we’ve known, god, for decades, that if you eat a

Steak, and say hey, where’s the calcium coming must be peeing our bones down the toilet. in a meal, and you eat that steak, you get out the calcium’s radioactive. it’s actually that you were peeing out. so, what protein so, by eating a steak you would get more calcium and your body’s like ‘whoa!, what’s with all this calcium?’, and just pees out recess with

This loss of calcium in the urine cause thing. that does not seem to be the case. aren’t bad for the bones but it just…this the high rates of osteoporosis…has not panned out. eating animal protein’. no, we need to get…600mg be eating dark green leafy vegetables, so can use to sweeten things with black cherry …calcium solidified tofu. all sorts of things have

Lot s of calcium but we should just make sure we get it. calcium…can you over do it or is that something it would be very difficult to overdo. i mean, so if you take two {{??}} supplement your body is just going to kick it out you don’t think of people taking too much stones i guess. but um…it’s not something supplementing with calcium anyway. anything oh yeah,
