What if you could follow a diet that, compared to a standard weight loss plan, can increase weight loss by up to 70% and loss of body fat by up to 64%? A diet that may also reduce tummy fat by up to 47% more? And decrease the chances of regaining the weight once you've lost it? You can find it in your grocer's dairy case.
The diet is the milk diet. Specifically a reduced calorie diet, that incorporates 24 ounces of milk in 24 hours.
What's so special about milk in a weight loss program? The calcium found in milk is not only beneficial for strong bones, but for a trim waistline, too. An accumulating list of impressive research suggests that calcium, combined with calorie restriction, aids in weight- and waist-loss.
The most recent scientific study, published in the journal Obesity Research, found that drinking at least 3 eight-ounce glasses of fat free milk in a day helped people lose more weight than those dieters who drank little or no milk.
Most importantly, milk drinkers' fat loss, especially around their tummies, was significantly greater. They also maintained more muscle. This is noteworthy because fat around our bellies is implicated in such conditions as metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancers.
