For years, dairy was touted as evil when it came to losing weight, but new research shows that not only are dairy products not unhealthy for weight loss, but they can actually increase your weight loss as much as one hundred percent. This little known fact was introduced in a BBC documentary and tested in other studies around the world. There are some reasons why this is so, but it involves understanding how the body works, and how dairy affects your body, but the bottom line is, you can burn almost twice as much fat by adding dairy than with diet and exercise alone.
What Are Dairy Products?
First of all, let’s explore what dairy products are. Generally, when people think of dairy products, they think of a couple of different things – like milk and ice cream – but the list of dairy products is extensive and includes milk, sour cream, buttermilk, other creams, infant formula, butter, which is mostly made of milk fat, ricotta and other cheese including cheese curds and cottage cheese, yogurt, which is fermented milk with additional bacterial added, ice cream, frozen custard and yogurt and many other foods that are localized to other parts of the world like Central Asia.
