Do Calcium and Weight Loss Really Go Hand in Hand?

The lowdown on the latest research about calcium and weight loss.

You’ve probably seen the calcium and weight loss commercials. You know the ones… The commercials where the milk industry is trying to tell you that you can actually lose weight by increasing your dairy intake. Are these commercials touting the truth or are they just trying to take you for a ride?

Believe It Or Not…

Believe it or not, these commercials are actually touting truth. Studies have shown that calcium and weight loss aren’t just coincidence, they actually go hand in hand. It appears that people who get enough calcium in their diets are better able to lose weight than people who don’t.

How Does It Work?

Researchers believe that the link between calcium and weight loss may be your body’s starvation mode. Even if your body is getting enough food, if you’re not getting enough calcium, your body may go into starvation mode, making it impossible for you to lose weight. Once you start getting enough calcium, your body starts burning calories, making it easier to lose the weight you’re trying to shed.
