Dairy Protein Boosts Bone Health

Dairy Protein Boosts Bone Health Overweight and obese people tend to have greater bone mass. So bone health can become an issue when you're trying to diet down. A study published in the Journal of Endocrinology & Metabolism suggests that dairy proteins might offer a solution.

Researchers put 90 overweight or obese women on a modest calorie restricted diet and got them involved with a daily exercise program that included both aerobic and resistance training. The subjects who consumed more protein with an emphasis on dairy foods exhibited positive markers of bone turnover and metabolism as well as calcium and vitamin D status.

True Strength Moment: If you're on a diet, trading an 8 ounce glass of 2% milk for a whey protein shake can lighten your load by taking 3.5 grams of fat, 11 grams of sugar and 9 grams of carbohydrates off the table. You'll also have a much wider selection of flavors to choose from. For an interesting dieter's eating strategy, read today's Performance Blog at ABBperformance.com
