The goal of this research was the evaluation of nutrition and life-style of healthy women (aged 42–56) and women with treated osteoporosis (aged 33–60). The research was conducted in the form of a questionnaire, concerning the life-style and anthropometric data. The quantity and quality of three-day menus were also under evaluation. Only in 53% of women without osteoporosis and in 33% of women with osteoporosis a proper BMI index was ascertained. The life-style and the way of nutrition of women without osteoporosis and with osteoporosis was similar and differed from recommended in the osteoporosis prophylaxis and in its treatment. The use of condiments, low physical activity, improper structure of consumption of nutrition products and resulting from it deficiency of nutrition components protecting against the development and intensification of osteoporosis (Ca, Mg, Zn, C and B6 vitamins) and excess of ingredients which are favorable to its formation (animal protein, P, Na), was ascertained. Taking into consideration the above conclusions it seems necessary to educate society from the earliest possible age in the pro-health way of nutrition as a prophylaxis of osteoporosis in the aspect of treating it with proper nutrition.
