Calcium May Assist Weight Loss
Research shows that keeping your calcium intake high while dieting may assist weight loss.
It is best to get your calcium from food sources rather than supplements.
Eat a diet which includes good sources of calcium, like low-fat dairy products, leafy green vegetables, salmon, canned sardines and tofu.
It is important for women in particular to eat calcium-rich foods whether they are dieting or not, in order to protect bones and prevent osteoporosis.
For healthy sustained weight loss, choose a diet that follows the Food Pyramid Guidelines and offers diet support, exercise advice and weight loss motivation.
