2004, just-food.com: Increasing calcium-rich
dairy foods within a calorie-controlled diet may help
accelerate weight loss, a new study reveals.
According to University of Tennessee Nutrition and
Medicine Professor Dr. Michael Zemel new research conducted
over five years suggests that dairy calcium may help
to boost fat breakdown and reduce fat formation and
Zemel has been discussing his research at Dairy Australia’s
Nutrition Seminar Series.
Dairy Australia nutrition manager, Dr Anita Wells,
said Zemel’s work was ongoing, but offered exciting
possibilities. She added that the emerging research
suggested that the key to losing weight and preventing
weight gain could be a combination of limiting fat and
calorie intake, taking regular exercise and including
three servings of low-fat dairy in the daily diet.
Zemel’s research has received an independent
financial grant from the National Dairy Council (USA).
