With San Leandro’s Downtown Farmers’ Market, you can take care of your feet and your local farmers at the same time! Every Wednesday from 4 to 8 PM, you can peruse the vendors for fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers, and gourmet foods to gather a diet for your feet and support the community. This feast will provide vital nutrients, like calcium to help prevent osteoporosis, and low-calorie foods to prevent obesity.

Bone loss, stress fractures, and broken bones can result from osteoporosis in the feet. Calcium is a vital nutrient to prevent this progressive disease. When you’re young and still growing, you should make it a priority to consume calcium—it will keep osteoporosis from appearing when you’re older. Yogurt, cheese, milk, leafy green vegetables, sardines, broccoli, and collard greens can all keep your bones strong.

Obesity puts a lot of weight on the joints in your feet. People who are overweight have a higher chance of getting arthritic conditions, just because of the excess joint pressure. That includes gout and rheumatoid arthritis. Regular exercise—like walking, hiking, swimming, cycling, and jogging—will help you maintain a healthy weight and prevent bone loss.

Participate in civic-minded engagement and help your feet at the same time. Shop at local farmers’ markets and organic storefronts, and invest in a great diet for your feet. If you need treatment options for a foot condition, call Dr. Michael Stein and Zeindelin Ahmad, DPM at (510) 483-3390. Foot Doctor of the East Bay is also on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest!
