Calcium can help you lose weight, even without cutting
calories – especially if you are not getting enough now, reports a study in the
British Journal of Nutrition.Over 15
weeks, obese women who doubled their daily intake from 600 milligrams to 1,200
lost an average of 11 pounds more than those who didn’t boost their quota.The brain could be detecting a calcium
deficiency and then telling the body to eat more to make up for it.
