Studies have suggested that a higher calcium intake may help to prevent weight gain or, as some have suggested, even cause weight loss. Among American Indians, those with a higher calcium intake -- greater than 873 mg per day -- only weighed 1.8 pounds less than those with a low calcium intake of less than 313 mg per day.
While every little bit helps, this is not exactly the answer to the obesity epidemic.
