A new study out of France’s Laval University found boosting calcium consumption spurs weight loss.
Doctors followed a group of obese women undergoing a fifteen-week weight loss program.
They found women who took a daily twelve-hundred milligram calcium supplement, lost about ten pounds more than the women who took a dummy pill.
The recommended daily intake of calcium is a thousand milligrams.
Researchers say sufficient calcium intake seems to stifle the desire to eat more.
The study appears in the "British Journal of Nutrition."
