A University of Tennessee study concluded that participants who ate higher levels of calcium-rich foods lost an average of eleven pounds over a year. It’s believed that a when your brain detects a lack of calcium, it tries to compensate by upping food intake. In order to stifle this desire to eat more, it’s important to give your body the calcium it needs.*
The weight-loss study participants consumed 1200 mg of calcium a day. While supplements are available, there are plenty of calcium-rich foods that are natural fat-burners too; try sesame seeds, bok choy, kale, almonds and broccoli.
