4. Build your bones

Osteoporosis, a bone-thinning disease, is a major health threat for women later on in life -- one out of every two women over age 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in her lifetime. What you eat and do now matters:

Watch calcium in your diet and aim for at least three servings of dairy a day. Healthy sources include skim milk, low-fat cheese and yogurt. Non-dairy options (such as dark green vegetables and calcium-fortified foods) and calcium supplement also help you reach your goal of 1,000 mg daily for women aged 25 to 50.

To keep bones strong, engage in regular weight-bearing activities such as walking, running, aerobics or dancing, which helps build bone mass.
