nutrition-calcium

I have lactose intolerance and am sensitive to a lot of carbs, I mostly stick to eating protein, salads lots of veggies and fruits, nuts, sweet potato, chick peas , kidney beans, home made yogurt and oatmeal. Are there others out ther that have lactose intolerance and what do you do other than taking supplements (which I do take twice a day) to help me the requiremants for the calcium intake?

Re: nutrition-calcium

Hello ~

I just found out I am pregnant, and I too am lactose intolerant... I just wanted to ask you if the calcium supplements that you take have magnesium in them, for that's very important in digesting the calcium. If it doesn't have magnesium then the calcium won't dissolve in your system the way it should. Just thought I'm mention it if you didn't know that already--for a quick fyi....

Best of luck to you and your pregnancy.... I hope others reading your question will be able to come up with some food suggestions...I'd like to know too.

Re: nutrition-calcium

Yes mine do, thank-you so much for the information though, could be helpful for many others as well. Are you able to eat yogurt and cheese?
