These quick tips will avoid weakening your bones:

Strictly, do not smoke ever. Alongside many bad effects of smoking, weak bones are one of them. Nicotine, the prime content of tobacco is a calcium killer because it affects the bone-building cells. If you smoke and in-case you have a fracture, it will take longer than usual to heal.

Salt contains sodium and bones contain calcium. Sodium in excess washes off calcium with urine. Try avoiding too much of salty food.
Too much of alcohol consumption degrades the hormones like progesterone and estrogen. Stay away from alcohol as much as possible.

Try to get a walk or do some kind of physical activity daily. This is because a sedentary lifestyle will never help you develop proper bones. Like muscles, your bones develop with exercise.

Try to lead an active lifestyle and follow a routine. This will not only help you develop your bones but also help in the development of your overall body.
