Milk Products for Your Healthy Weight
Contrary to what some may think, consuming the recommended servings of milk products every day as part of a calorie-reduced diet could help you manage your weight in a healthy way.
According to more than 30 scientific research studies, a diet rich in calcium or in milk products could make it easier to maintain a healthy weight or lose excess weight. In fact, it appears that calcium could make the body use fat as an energy source more efficiently and reduce fat storage in cells. Also, it seems that milk products could achieve this more effectively than calcium supplements, which suggests that other milk ingredients, such as protein, could play an important role, perhaps by reducing appetite. This weight loss could be even more effective in people who generally have a low milk products intake.
Conclusion: Although not a magic formula, milk products in adequate amounts may have added benefits for weight management.
