Dairy foods have a positive impact on weight loss
Dairy foods may help you lose weight.
In a 24-week study published on April 16, 2004 in Obesity Research adults on a reduced-calorie diet who ate 3-4 servings of dairy foods each day lost significantly more weight than those who also cut calories but consumed few or no dairy foods.
The study indicates that 3-4 daily servings of milk, cheese or yogurt help people lose more weight. The mix of essential nutrients in dairy foods, including calcium and protein, appears to speed up metabolism and improve the body’s ability to burn fat.
