Good that you take your magnesium with your calcium, it can be dangerous to take just calcium alone. I don't know that weight loss effects bone mass loss but if you are dieting you could be losing important nutrients needed to bind the calcium you take to your bones and to keep them strong, sich as Boron or Vitamin D.

See the article below and it can explain more about osteoporoosis and calcium and other minerals used to maintain the bones.
