BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: We have previously demonstrated an antiobesity effect of dietary Ca; this is largely mediated by Ca suppression of calcitriol levels, resulting in reduced adipocyte intracellular Ca2+ and, consequently, a coordinated increase in lipid utilization and decrease in lipogenesis. Notably, dairy Ca is markedly more effective than other Ca sources.DESIGN: Obese subjects were placed on balanced deficit (−500 kcal/day) diets and randomized to control (400–500 mg Ca/day; n=16… CONTINUE READING
