wheat&dairy free diet recommendations
I am a personal fitness trainer and would like you to offer some advice for a client of mine. She wishes to follow a wheat and dairy free diet to aid in her weight loss program but is at risk of osteoporosis, and is 53 years old. Which foods should she avoid and which would you recommend as she still needs to take her r.d.a. of calcium. Many thanks

Dear Fatima
Refer her to a clinical dietitian (phone (012) 998-5650 (mornings) because this is a very complex situation which requires more than just a few guidelines.
