This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was conducted to compare the effect of a 15-week weight-reducing programme ( -2900 kJ/d) coupled with a calcium plus vitamin D (calcium+D) supplementation (600 mg elemental calcium and 5 microg vitamin D, consumed twice a day) or with a placebo, on body fat and on spontaneous energy/macronutrient intake. Sixty-three overweight or obese women (mean age 43 years, mean BMI 32 kg/m2) reporting a daily calcium intake < 800 mg participated in… 
Calcium plus vitamin D3 supplementation facilitated Fat loss in overweight and obese college students with very-low calcium consumption: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Calcium plus vitamin D3 supplementation for 12 weeks augmented body fat and visceral fat loss in very-low calcium consumers during energy restriction.
Role of Calcium and Low-Fat Dairy Foods in Weight-Loss Outcomes Revisited: Results from the Randomized Trial of Effects on Bone and Body Composition in Overweight/Obese Postmenopausal Women
TLDR
Increasing low-fat dairy foods to 4–5 servings/day and/or increasing Ca & vitamin D intake by supplements (in those who are at the borderline dietary intake) may be beneficial for weight loss/maintenance and may lead to more favorable bone and body composition outcomes in postmenopausal women during moderate weight loss.
Milk supplementation facilitates appetite control in obese women during weight loss: a randomised, single-blind, placebo-controlled trial
TLDR
Results show that milk supplementation attenuates the orexigenic effect of body weight loss and thus facilitates appetite control in low Ca consumer women.
A 12-week double-blind randomized clinical trial of vitamin D3 supplementation on body fat mass in healthy overweight and obese women
TLDR
Among healthy overweight and obese women, increasing 25(OH) D concentrations by vitamin D3 supplementation led to body fat mass reduction.
Differential Impact of Calcium and Vitamin D on Body Composition Changes in Post-Menopausal Women Following a Restricted Energy Diet and Exercise Program
TLDR
The results expand upon current literature regarding the impact of calcium supplementation with dieting and regular exercise and highlight that different forms of calcium in combination with an energy restricted, higher carbohydrate diet may trigger changes in body mass or body composition.
Calcium and vitamin D for obesity: a review of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
Current evidence from RCTs did not consistently support the contention that calcium and vitamin D accelerated weight or fat loss in obesity, and there is a need for R CTs to examine the influence of vitamin D on body fat.
The influence of calcium supplementation on substrate metabolism during exercise in humans: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Two weeks of calcium supplementation does not influence substrate utilization during exercise in physically active males and no significant differences were detected in any subjective appetite sensations.
Effect of daily calcitriol supplementation with and without calcium on disease regression in non-alcoholic fatty liver patients following an energy-restricted diet: Randomized, controlled, double-blind trial.
TLDR
It is suggested that calcium plus calcitriol supplementation for 12 weeks may be potentially effective for biochemical parameters in NAFLD patients and further additional larger controlled trials are needed to confirm these findings.
Calcium, vitamin D and weight loss
TLDR
It seems to be an important oversight to not provide details of the placebo used and it would be helpful if the authors were to disclose this valuable piece of information, such as a scatter-plot showing the relationship between weight loss and habitual intake in each study arm, so that this could be assessed.
Effect of increasing dietary calcium through supplements and dairy food on body weight and body composition: a meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials
TLDR
Increasing dietary Ca intake by 900 mg/d as supplements or increasing dairy intake to approximately 3 servings daily (approximately 1300 mg of Ca/d) is not an effective weight reduction strategy in adults, but there is an indication that approximately3 servings of dairy may facilitate fat loss on weight reduction diets in the short term.

Supplementation with calcium + vitamin D enhances the beneficial effect of weight loss on plasma lipid and lipoprotein concentrations.
TLDR
Consumption of calcium+D during a weight-loss intervention enhanced the beneficial effect of body weight loss on the lipid and lipoprotein profile in overweight or obese women with usual low daily calcium intake.
Calcium and dairy acceleration of weight and fat loss during energy restriction in obese adults.
TLDR
Increasing dietary calcium significantly augmented weight and fat loss secondary to caloric restriction and increased the percentage of fat lost from the trunk region, whereas dairy products exerted a substantially greater effect.
Effect of calcium and dairy foods in high protein, energy-restricted diets on weight loss and metabolic parameters in overweight adults
TLDR
Increased dietary calcium/dairy foods in an energy-restricted, HP diet does not affect weight loss or body composition, and weight reduction following increased protein diets is associated with beneficial metabolic outcomes that are not affected by protein source.
Calcium supplementation for 1 y does not reduce body weight or fat mass in young girls.
TLDR
Habitual dietary calcium intake was inversely associated with body fat, but a low-dose calcium supplement had no effect on body weight, height, or body fat over 1 y in young girls.
Effect of short-term high dietary calcium intake on 24-h energy expenditure, fat oxidation, and fecal fat excretion
TLDR
A short-term increase in dietary calcium intake, together with a normal protein intake, increased fecal fat and energy excretion by ∼350 kJ/day, which may contribute to explain why a high-calcium diet produces weight loss.
Effect of low- and high-calcium dairy-based diets on macronutrient oxidation in humans.
TLDR
Consumption of a dairy-based high-calcium diet increased 24-hour fat oxidation under conditions of acute energy deficit and it is hypothesized that these effects are due to an increased fat oxidation during exercise.
Effect of energy-reduced diets high in dairy products and fiber on weight loss in obese adults.
TLDR
No evidence is found that diets higher than 800 mg of calcium in dairy products or higher in fiber and lower in glycemic index enhance weight reduction beyond what is seen with calorie restriction alone.
Dairy augmentation of total and central fat loss in obese subjects
TLDR
Isocaloric substitution of yogurt for other foods significantly augments fat loss and reduces central adiposity during energy restriction.
Calcium intake, body composition, and lipoprotein-lipid concentrations in adults.
TLDR
In both sexes, a high calcium intake is associated with a plasma lipoprotein-lipid profile predictive of a lower risk of coronary heart disease risk compared with a low calcium intake.
Calcium deficiency cannot induce obesity in rats
TLDR
In this experiment, low-calcium intake failed to cause obesity and did not raise the body weight set-point, indicating that calcium intake probably does not affect body weight.
