  • Bone Density And Dieting: Professional

    4 pages in length. The extent to which a low-calorie approach to dieting equates to decreased bone mineral density (BMD) is both grand and far-reaching; that teenage and young adult women represent eighty percent of the total population experiencing bone mass loss speaks to a cultural indoctrination of distorted body image. Two categories in particular depict a preponderance of females who engage in a low-calorie diet and have a greater rate of bone mass reduction: athletes and eating disorder sufferers.

  • Bone Density And Dieting: Consumers

    3 pages in length. Slick weight loss advertisements have people believing that a quick fix is better than a slow and steady success; far too few encourage regular exercise with speedy caloric reduction, which ultimately places the dieter at great risk for the loss of bone density. According to a study done in 2005 and published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, people who seek weight loss by calorie reduction alone have been found to lose bone density as compared with those who ate a balanced diet and exercised away the weight. What this clearly illustrates is how the properties of calories go much further than creating energy and putting on the pounds; rather, they are instrumental in maintaining bone stability that helps to ward of osteoarthritis. Bibliography lists 14 sources.
