24/24 Dairy Weight Loss Program

Add Ounces. Lose Pounds.

Emerging research suggests that getting enough calcium from milk in your reduced-calorie diet could help you lose more weight than if you just cut calories. There are more than 15 studies that have concluded that dairy products aid in weight loss.

How does milk help in weight loss? Calcium is part of the body's natural system for burning fat. When calcium goes up, body fat goes down. In study after study, the people with the highest calcium intake weighed the least, while the people with the lowest calcium intake had the highest percentage of body fat.

What can you do to act on this new information? Just eat or drink 24 oz. of dairy products every day as part of your reduced-calorie diet. That means 3 8-oz. servings each day - typically a glass of milk, a container of yogurt or a scoop of lowfat cottage cheese. Here are some ways to fit Meadow Gold products into your weight loss plan:

  • Add an 8 oz. glass of milk at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • Eat cereal with milk for breakfast, have yogurt as a snack, and drink a glass of milk at lunch and dinner.
  • Add a container of yogurt to your breakfast, a scoop of cottage cheese at lunch, then have a glass of milk with your snack and with dinner.
  • Snack on cottage cheese or yogurt and drink milk at two meals.
