New studies suggest that calcium coming from dairy allows the body to burn fat quicker. Foods such as cheese, milk, yogurt, beans, legumes, broccoli and most dark-green leafy vegetables are a good source of calcium.

2-3 servings of dairy helps burn fat. Researchers say this is because calcium stored in fat cells plays an important role in fat storage and breakdown. Low calcium diets cause calcitrophic hormones to produce which tell the body to make more fat and slow the process of using fat for energy down. Low calcium diets can slow down your metabolism. Calcium coming from dairy is shown to work twice as well for fat loss especially in the abdominal region.

Calcium is not going to make you lean as there is no magic solution. However, keeping a healthy lifestyle consisting of a good diet and exercise along with the added calcium will aid in the battle of the bulge.

Here's another good article.

I love milk. What about all those scary things people say about cow growth hormones in the milk?

Oh that's all in there. You can get organic milk which is raw and this has nothing bad. It essentially is from the utter right to your lips. :thumbsup:

I'm sticking pretty strictly to a 1200 cal diet. If I add milk I'll go over-would it be worth it to get the benefits or should I just stick to my calcium supplement?

You are already doing the right thing. As long as your calcium supplement is calcium citrate(the most absorbable form of calcium) and/or coral calcium then there is no need to drink milk. If your calcium supplement is calcium carbonate(which is also in milk) switch immediately since many of this will not get absorbed.

Also make sure if you take calcium and an iron supplement that you do not take them together as they will compete leaving the calcium to lose and not become absorbed. Take the iron in the morning and the calcium a little while later as well as lunch time and before bed time.

Calcium needs to be in the bloodstream and body 24/7 for proper function. You do not just want to take it or even a multivitamin once a day. Taking them throughout the day will not only provide more energy to you, but also a higher absorption as well. I recommend a whole foods based multi if you do take one since they are without binders and better for you.
