Quit clus­ter eat­ing. Think longert­erm

Shape (Singapore) - - Live Healthy -

If your usual MO is to cover your cal­cium needs at break­fast with a bowl of ce­real and milk, some yo­gurt, and a latte, you’re not ac­tu­ally in the clear to check the min­eral off your list, says Tay­lor Wal­lace, a pro­fes­sor in the de­part­ment of nu­tri­tion and food stud­ies at Ge­orge Ma­son Univer­sity in Vir­ginia. “Your body can ab­sorb only 500mg at a time,” Tay­lor says. In­stead of con­sum­ing it in one big clus­ter at a sin­gle meal, eat three or four 300 to 500 mg serv­ings of cal­cium through­out the day.
