Claims that dairy increases weight loss and fat loss are bogus

Dairy and dairy calcium have been promoted as increasing weight loss and fat loss according to research supported by the Dairy Management, a marketing creation of the United States Department of Agriculture which was created to help to sell more dairy, milk and cheese. However, this research appears to be bogus, and other researchers have found no evidence of weight loss according to an article in the New York Times. Read the entire article | Email this article

Meteoric rise in cheese consumption may a major contributor to obesity says Dr. Neal Barnard

Barnard, president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, an advocacy group, said in an interview as quoted in an article in the New York Times about how dairy was promoted for weight loss, but the claims appear to be not true.

Weight loss similar on low-calorie diet with high-calcium from dairy or non-dairy - 18.7 vs 15.8 lbs

Subjects lost a similar amount of weight in three months on low-calorie, high-calcium diet whether the calcium was from dairy or non-dairy -- 18.7 lbs vs 15.8 lbs according to a study by researchers from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

This represented 10.2 percent of the total fat that they ate.

"During a moderate energy restriction induced weight loss, a high-[calcium] diet causes an increase in fecal fat excretion independent of [calcium] source [that is, calcium from dairy or non-dairy]", the authors concluded. Read the entire article | Email this article

People who were unable to digest lactose lost 5.7 lbs less than others - 20.2 lbs vs 14.5 lbs

People who were unable to digest lactose (milk sugar) as determined by a breath test lost 5.7 lbs less during a three month study than subjects who were able to digest lactose -- 20.2 lbs vs 14.5 lbs -- according to a study by researchers from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

Subjects were prescribed a reduced-calorie diet containing 30 percent fewer calories than their needs.

"Approximately 70% of the world’s population loses the ability to digest large amounts of lactose after weaning," the authors noted.

The inability to digest lactose had no effect on urinary calcium excretion or fecal fat loss associated with calcium. Read the entire article | Email this article

Black diabetic hypertensive men given 600 mg of calcium per day to determine the effect on blood pressure, lost an average 10.8 pounds compared to those not given calcium according to a 1990 study.

Blood pressure decreased from 121 to 114 mm Hg in those given calcium.

Left ventricular mass decreased from 289 to 240 grams. A decrease in left ventricular mass is associated with a decreased risk of cardiovascular problems due to hypertension. Read the entire article | Email this article

Calcium will not prevent you from gaining weight if you eat too much according to Dr. Robert Heaney

Calcium only reduced weight gain in those eating less than an average amount of food according to a 2002 paper from Robert P. Heaney, MD at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, USA and others.

"[A study by Lin (2000) which involved] 54 normal women 18 to 30 years of age, found significant inverse correlations between calcium intake, adjusted for energy, and change in both body weight and body fat mass over a two-year period of observation," Heaney wrote.

"Of special interest is the fact that calcium’s negative effect on gain in weight was confined to those subjects below the median energy intake."

"In other words... if one eats more than one burns, one will store the difference, regardless of calcium intake." Read the entire article | Email this article

One added serving of dairy calcium, 300 mg per day, associated with 4% less body fat in children

An additional serving of dairy calcium per day, equal to 300 mg of calcium, is associated with a decrease in body fat of 3.5 to 4.5 percent in children according to a 2002 paper from Robert P. Heaney, MD at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, USA and others.

"Each additional regular serving of a dairy calcium source was associated with 0.9–1.1 kg less body fat and a lower value for percent body fat in the range of 3.5% to 4.5% (depending upon how calculated)," Heaney wrote.

"In their study, body fat averaged 18% of body weight in males and 21% in females at 70 months of age [5- years-and-10-months]. Hence a 3.5% to 4.5% lower value translates to 20% less body fat per regular dairy serving."
