Dairy consumption can increase weight loss

A study by the University of Tennessee has made the discovery that a low calorie, high dairy diet can nearly double weight loss compared to simply a low calorie diet. The calcium in milk as well as some other mechanism is believed to be the main instigator of the weight loss and thus it is important to eat three or four serves of dairy rather than taking supplements or fortified foods. The National Dairy Council promotes milk as a good source of calcium, vitamins and protein.
