I noticed that whenever I input what I ate during the day in my www.cronometer.com (Usually I intake around 3500-4000 calories per day,following rawtill4 rules) level of Calcium never crosses 50%..
Should I be worried about it? I am concerned about my teeth mostly. I am still learning, still consider my self to be newbie on this lifestyle so littel reassurance wouldn't hurt me.:-)
What are your guys experience with this? Any suggestions? Reccomendations?
What are the best plant based sources of calcium by the way?
Thanks in advance!:-)
That is the mark more or less I am usually around.:-) If You come acrosee a video clip or text about it online please let me know. Thanks!:-)
My cronometer says the same thing everyday! Maybe once or twice, I've managed to consume up to 52% calcium at the highest. It is a little disconcerting. Sorry I don't have a real answer for you since I'm seeking one myself.
Disconcerting is right word.:-)
It is good to hear that 500mg which is 50% is enough.
I am sure will do just great as well as our bones.:-)
Best absorption of calcium is in the correct ratio of calcium with phosphorus.
Eg lettuce has the ratio 1:1 with the phosphorus in orange.So one should eat them together!
I have seen a table of these relationships somewhere on 30 bad.
It will not reflect on in cronometer as calcium intake increase though.But your bones know.
Thanks!:-) If You maybe come across that table can You send me a link?
Thank You for replying!:-)
You are all awesome!:-) It is nice to know that so many friendly,helpful people are around!
I kinda think that recommended numbers in general have in it included high margin of error, just to make it safe.;-)
I like the idea of Calcium:Phosphorus = 1:1 ratio. I usually do drink orange juice with my baked potatoes or rice right after I am done with my salad. Hopefully that counts.:-)
By the way do You guys recommend drinking juices while eating your cooked meal? Potential bloating/water retention potential hazard?
