The Common Drink That Doubles Weight Loss

The
healthy drink provides nutrients that support weight loss.
Milk
drinkers lose weight at double the rate, research finds.
Adding
two-thirds of a glass of milk per day increases weight loss by 10 pounds, on
average, over six months, the scientists discovered.
Drinking
more milk every day helps increase calcium and vitamin D levels.
Both
calcium and vitamin D have been linked to greater weight loss.
The
study involved 322 overweight people following a low-fat Mediterranean or
low-carb diet for two years.
The
diet made little difference — what mattered was their calcium and vitamin D
levels.
The
results showed that milk drinkers lost 12 pounds, on average, in the first six
months.
They
consumed an average of 580 mg of calcium per day, which is contained in two
glasses of milk.
The
study’s authors write:
“The
2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans include a recommendation for 3 cups (720
mL) of milk per day, an amount that was shown to be beneficial for weight loss
in our study.”
In
comparison, those that drank little milk (around half a glass) only lost 7
pounds.
The
authors explain:
“In
summary, our findings suggest that both higher consumption of dairy calcium and
increased serum vitamin D are independently associated with successful weight
loss. 
The
causal relation between these factors needs further clarification.”
Around
half the world’s general population is deficient in vitamin D.
From
October to March many people in northern climes do not get enough vitamin D.
The
authors write:
“Vitamin
D increases calcium absorption into the bloodstream. 
It
is obtained by sun exposure, from food (mainly fish liver oils, fatty fish, and
eggs), fortified foods (such as milk, yogurt, margarine, oil spreads, and breakfast
cereal), and supplements.”
The
study was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (Shahar et
al., 2010).
