Burn 64% More Body Fat by Boosting Your Dairy
Increasing dietary calcium specifically from dairy foods may significantly speed up fat oxidation (burning), according to a study by researchers at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Previous research has shown calcium itself may stimulate weight loss, but this is believed to be the first study showing that dairy products exert a substantially greater effect on fat loss compared to an equivalent amount of supplemental calcium.
In the study, 32 adult subjects were randomized to a control diet (1 serving of 400 to 500 milligrams of calcium per day supplemented with a placebo); high-calcium (control diet supplemented with 800 milligrams of calcium per day); or high dairy (three to four servings of low-fat dairy products per day, which equated to 1,200 to 1,300 milligrams of calcium per day.
“Fat loss with the high calcium and high dairy diets augmented fat loss by 38 percent and 64 percent, respectively, over the low-calcium diet,” report the researchers.
“What’s more, fat loss from the abdominal region (belly fat) represented 19 percent of total fat loss on the low-calcium diet, and this fraction was increased to 50.1 percent and 66.2 percent on the high-calcium and high dairy diets,” they write.
“Thus, increasing dietary calcium significantly augments weight and fat loss secondary to caloric restriction and increases the percentage of fat loss from the trunk region. Moreover, dairy products exert a substantially greater effect on both fat loss and fat distribution compared to an equivalent amount of supplemental calcium.”
Bottom line? Three to four servings a day of dairy foods like cottage cheese (which is also rich in casein protein) may increase total-body fat loss by upwards of 64 percent, according to this study.
Beyond upping your dairy consumption, here’s another trick to really ramp up your fat-loss efforts: Recent laboratory analysis from the University of Toronto has recently identified what could be called “The World’s Most Powerful Fat Burner.”
Specifically, these tests have shown a rare white tea grown in the Nandi Highlands of Kenya’s Great Rift Valley possesses a mind-blowing 25 times the fat-burning polyphenols of regular green tea and over DOUBLE that of high-potency green tea matcha.
So what exactly is this tea? It’s a high-grade, organic white matcha grown at an altitude of 6,500 feet above sea level under the bright sun of Kenya’s majestic Great Rift Valley — allowing the leaves to soak in extraordinarily high levels of antioxidants and fat-burning polyphenols.
This tea — called Kenya Rift Valley Reserve White Matcha™ — is not sold in stores and is licensed and sold to consumers exclusively through the website KenyaMatcha.com.
