If you have heard it once, you will hear it twice – another reason to drink milk and do you body good regarding the link between milk and losing weight!
BEER-SHEVA, ISRAEL, September 21, 2010 — A new weight loss study conducted by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) researchers reveals that dieters who consumed milk or milk products lost more weight on average than those who consumed little to no milk products.
There have been numerous studies similar to this one, whether it is yogurt or milk the calcium has been linked to opening the door of fat burning cells.
The study published in the current issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found participants with the highest dairy calcium intake (12 oz. of milk or other dairy products including 580 mg of dairy calcium), lost about 12 pounds at the end of the two years. Whereas those participants who only lost seven pounds had the lowest dairy calcium intake averaging about 150 mg dairy calcium, or about half of a glass.
Another interesting part to the puzzle includes Vitamin D and weight loss! Showing participants with higher levels of vitamin D in their blood had more weight loss than those with lower levels.
