It is important that you eat a diet that is rich in calcium and Vitamin D. You should also be taking in enough protein. A healthy diet not only helps you avoid bone stress fractures but will also keep you looking good.

Research also shows that alcohol, smoking and too much caffeine can interfere with bone strength.
