Calcium and Dieting


CoolSculpting banishes unwanted fat bulges, but to maintain your results, try looking at how much calcium you consume.

Did you know that increasing your calcium intake could give your diet the kickstart it needs? Findings of the study, conducted by researchers at Université Laval’s Faculty of Medicine, were published in the British Journal of Nutrition a few years ago.

But beware: if you’re currently taking enough calcium, increasing it won’t help. The study found that the positive effects of calcium intake on a diet only existed when a diet lacked sufficient calcium intake.

Participants of this study were all obese women (BMI of 30 or more). Researchers found that when the body didn’t get enough calcium, food intake was spurred in an effort to get the sufficient amount (recommended daily intake is 1000mg). Therefore, you might not be able to satisfy your appetite if you don’t get enough calcium, even if you eat a healthy number of calories throughout the day.

But that’s not the only bad news if you’re not getting enough calcium in your diet. The link between calcium and successful dieting was made by the same researcher a couple of times before. Years earlier, it was found that insufficient calcium intake could also be linked to bigger waistlines, worse cholesterol levels and more body fat.

Get your calcium from foods like dairy products, soy milk (fortified with calcium), tofu, and sardines (canned with bones).
