After assessing today’s actual diet and exercise, all I can say is that I haven’t been doing everything I to do to build bone! On the good side, my diet consisted of “real food”–no processed sugars or flours, no hydrogenated oils or transfats, and no artificial ingredients–and I took all my supplements.  However, my pH level is too acidic, which means I need to be eating a higher percentage of alkaline foods.  The worst part of this account is that I didn’t get any exercise at all!  That’s no way to strengthen bone.

Hopefully, I’ll do better tomorrow.  It’s amazing how much improvement comes about when you make yourself accountable to someone else.  So, thank you, OsteoDiet readers, for being my accountable partners!
