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. REFERENCE
