GMA: Dairy Can Help You Lose Fat

“Good Morning America” is teaming up with Reader’s Digest on a special series, “13 Things Experts Won’t Tell You.” In the segment, it cites a University of Tennessee study done by Nutrition Professor Michael Zemel which showed that eating three servings of dairy daily significantly reduced body fat in obese subjects. If they restricted calories a bit while continuing with the same dairy servings, it accelerated fat and weight loss. “Unfortunately some myths persist that dairy sabotages weight loss, but science proves this couldn’t be further from the truth. Research shows that those who have deficiencies in calcium hold a greater fat mass and experience less control of their appetite. What’s more, studies have found that dairy sources of calcium markedly more effective in accelerating fat loss than other sources,” the media outlet reported.
