Milk’s Vitamin D And Calcium Shown To Be Important To Losing Weight

September 1, 2010: 07:03 AM EST

A two-year study by Israeili, U.S. and German researchers has found that adults who drank up to two glasses of milk a day, and had high levels of vitamin D and calcium in their blood six months into the study, lost more weight by the end than those who drank no or very little milk. The weight loss averaged nearly 12 pounds among the milk drinkers. Each added 6-ounce serving of milk or milk products was associated with 10 pounds of weight loss above the average at six months. The study involved 300 overweight or at-risk men and women ages 40 – 65 who followed either a low-fat, Mediterranean or low-carb diet for two years. But the type of diet was less relevant than the amount of milk consumed.
