3. Make sure you get enough calcium
We know paleo says to cut it out, but in reality it's pretty hard to get enough calcium without including dairy. Women in particular are prone to osteoporosis (or brittle bones) in older age without sufficient calcium, so we need to get our recommended 1000mg a day, or 1300mg over the age of 50. If you'd still like to cut out dairy, consider products containing fortified calcium (like some soy milks) or supplements.
