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." REFERENCE
