A new weight loss study conducted by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) researchers reveals that dieters who consumed milk or milk products lost more weight on average than those who consumed little to no milk products. 

More than 300 overweight men and women, aged 40 to 65, participated in the study evaluating low fat, Mediterranean or low-carb diets for two years. Dr Danit Shahar, of BGU’s S. Daniel Abraham Centre for Health and Nutrition and the Faculty of Health Sciences, led the study.  It was part of the Dietary Intervention Randomised Control Trial (Direct) conducted at the Nuclear Research Centre in Israel.
