Calcium (and lack of it)

This is not as simple a topic as people may think. "Drink more milk" is what you've probably heard and your doctor probably still tells you. Of course there are many reasons why you may not be able to, or may not want to. And everyone knows why you need calcium right? Well, at least most people know you need calcium for healthy teeth and bones (among other things)! This came up today because I went to visit a doctor to tell her about our Intensive Dietary Management Program, and she pretty much made it clear that UNLESS I came up with a list of other foods that had calcium for her osteoporotic and female patients, she would not put them on an LCHF diet (this is what she had an issue with, NO

I know lots of people that need to go on a diet, but won't. The excuses are varied...some are very honest.
