To all non dairy consumers, read on!
A recent study , published in the Journal of Nutrition, states that consumption of dairy products, coupled with adequate exercise and dieting, can help build muscle and reduce belly fat in overweight and obese women.
The women in this study were assigned diets with differing protein and dairy levels. Over the 4 month duration of the study, the high dairy, high protein group lost twice as much belly fat and gained 3 pounds more of muscle mass than the adequate protein, low dairy group. The women in the first group also lost more fat an gained more muscle in the latter half of their weight loss regime. Therefore ladies, if you are doing it right, you will lose weight. Just hang in there and don’t give up, but most importantly, DON”T CHEAT!
Here is where you can read more about this article. I have tried getting access to the actual article in the journal but the fees are a little too much for my comfort 😦
Have a wonderful Sunday and don’t forget that pot of yogurt!
