How does calcium help to lower body weight?

Calcium intake has been associated with lower body weight. It appears to work by inhibiting lipogenesis (the production of fat from carbohydrates), increase lipogenesis (the release of fat from fat cells), increase fat excretion, and may increase core body temperature according to a review paper from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin.
