Nonfood Factors

Exercise as you normally would. Experts recommend at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity most days of the week. If weight loss is your goal, you may need to do 60 to 90 minutes of moderate- to vigorous-intensity activity three to five days of the week.

Is This Diet Vegetarian-Friendly?

Yes. A well-balanced vegetarian diet is rich in plant sources of calcium, which can replace some or all of the calcium previously obtained from dairy foods. A dietary calcium supplement or calcium-fortified nondairy foods and beverages also will ensure adequate calcium intake with a dairy-free vegetarian diet.

Eating Out

Ask which menu items are dairy-free or can be prepared without dairy. Avoid dishes made with common dairy sources, including cream and butter sauces, cheese and cheese sauces, items prepared au gratin, and many gravies.
