Eating dairy products helps with weight loss.

  People are being bombarded with TV and radio ads that say they can shed pounds by consuming more dairy products.

  This is based on a study that suggests people on low-calorie diets who eat foods high in calcium are more successful at losing weight than those who don't.

  Getting 800 to 1100 mg of calcium per day from dairy products such as yogurt seems to result in more weight and body fat loss than consuming less calcium. For every 300 mg increment of calcium consumed, there is an associated weight loss of 5 to 6 pounds.
