The earlier in life that you begin to make better lifestyle choices the better, and at the same time it's never too late at any point in your life that you begin to do this you get benefit from it. With regard to how early, one of the things that I often tell young people that I think many don't realize is that all the bone density that you have for your life and all the muscle mass is build up relatively earlier in life up until say the late 20's or so early 30's after that it's all downhill and after that all you can do is slow down loss, so that's certainly if you understand that, that's reason in your teenage years and your 20's to make the dietary choices, the exercise choices that are going to give you maximum bone density and maximum muscle mass because that's going to last you your whole life.
