“Ideal Diet”: Milk And Dairy Products Are Found To Aid Weight Loss Within A “Calorie-Restrictive” Diet Regime

 THIS SMALL STUDY IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT INCLUDES “CALORIE-RESTRICTIVE DIET”…AND CALCIUM IS KNOWN TO BE IMPORTANT NOT JUST FOR MAINTENANCE OF BONE DENSITY BUT PROPER CELLULAR FUNCTION AS WELL…AGAIN, WHOLE FOODS…NOT PROCESSED…READ BELOW:

"Calcium is a critical factor in controlling what your body does with calories, and dairy is an even more critical factor," says Zemel. "Without changing how many calories we take away, we can alter how much weight and fat you lose."

"Calcium is a critical factor in controlling what your body does with calories, and dairy is an even more critical factor," says Zemel. "Without changing how many calories we take away, we can alter how much weight and fat you lose."

(From Examiner.com Article) According to new research just realeased by Wendy Chan She Ping Delfos, a student at Curtin Unversity of Technology in Australia, consuming more dairy on a low-calorie diet can help lose more weight and increase fat loss.

The research was part of Ms. Delfos’ PhD requirements. Rarely does a diet reccommend an increase in dairy consumption but that may be about to change…again. In 2004, another research performed by Michael Zemel, PhD, a professor of nutrition and medicine at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, yielded very similar results.

“Calcium is a critical factor in controlling what your body does with calories, and dairy is an even more critical factor,” says Zemel. “Without changing how many calories we take away, we can alter how much weight and fat you lose.” (source) With this information, the dairy industry began touting the weight loss benefits of dairy products. This led to what was dubbed the “dairy diet”.

It wasn’t necessarily a diet but a promotion of Dr. Zemel’s study. The “dairy diet” promoted increased low-fat dairy consumption along with proper proportions and a restricted calorie intake. In 2005, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine filed a lawsuit against the dairy industry because of the ads.

They claim the research was fraudulent and the “dairy diet” promoted weight loss through a “massive, deceptive, advertising campaign.” It was later found that the dairy industry had donated $1.7 million to Dr. Zemel’s research starting in 1998. The claim was made that his objectivity was compromised because of the donations.

The dairy industry was eventually ended their campaign because of the controversy. In 2006, yet another research emerged touting the possible weight loss benefits of dairy. This time the research came from Perdue University. However, in this research, they were a bit more careful in the way they worded their findings.

 They stated that increased dairy consumption “may” accelerate weight loss. That brings us back to present day and Ms. Delfos’ research. She studied 40 obese individuals on a restricted calorie diet. They consumed 40 g of cheese, two small tubs of yogurt and two glasses of low fat milk daily (5 total servings).

The research found that the participants lost more weight, lost more abdominal fat, and lowered their blood pressure. Ms. Delfos does state specifically that an increase in dairy can benefit weight loss as long as the person is on a calorie restrictive diet during the weight loss period. In other words, drinking 5 glasses of milk a day and continuing to eat what you want will not make you skinny.
