Question: calcium intake in daily diet?
I am currently trying to loose fat, specially in the chest area and for that purpose I am trying to be strict with my diet. My usual daily food consists of
few slices of bran bread
4 whole eggs
occasional meat product and rice
Combining this with the exercise I am doing, I am happy with the results. But as you can see from the above that I don’t have any food that can supply me a reasonable amount of calcium and I am worried that if I used dairy products I would start gaining fat (I actually gained fat because of eating too much yogurt). Plus i don’t really like the idea of having “low fat” dairy products because i think that the processing involved in separating the fat from the product might actually take away most of its nutrition as well !!
Are calcium supplements ok? or maybe some calcium fortified cereal?Please guide on what should i do to get calcium without getting fat
plus tell me if the food i am eating is enough?

Canned sardines are high in calcium and high in protein.
