January 26, 2011: 10:06 AM EST

Australian researchers who compared the effects of low- and high-calcium meals on calorie intake and appetite among 11 middle-aged men found that higher levels of the mineral and vitamin at breakfast increased fat oxidation and energy burning rates over 24 hours, and increased feelings of satiety. Breakfasts that contained more than 500 mg of calcium and 8.7 micrograms of vitamin D were associated with significantly increased fat and energy burning during the rest of the day, compared to breakfasts that contained 250 mg of calcium 0.3 micrograms of vitamin D. According to the researchers, the participants ate less at a subsequent buffet meal, “the buffet to dinner interval was prolonged, and reported 24-hour energy intake following this trial was significantly reduced.”
