Nutrition to fuel your fitness needs
In terms of vitamin and mineral supplements, typical recommendations tend to encourage people to take more supplements than they need, vitamins they already get enough of in their diets. In general, you shouldnt take supplements the body doesnt need. The StoneFit Diet recommends only calcium and vitamin D for women. These are the two most important nutrients for bone health. When we dont get enough calcium for our bodys needs, it is taken from our bones. We believe that almost all women are deficient in calcium and vitamin D, and they start rapidly losing bone mineral density after age 30.
