Vitamin D is anticipated to have many extra‐skeletal health benefits. We questioned whether supplementation with the vitamin influenced body weight and composition. A systematic review and meta‐analysis was conducted on high‐quality, randomized controlled trials (RCTs) that had supplemented vitamin D without imposing any caloric restriction. Eighteen trials reporting either body weight, body mass index (BMI), fat mass (FM), percentage fat mass (%FM) or lean body mass (LBM) met our criteria… 
Vitamin D status and weight loss: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized and nonrandomized controlled weight-loss trials.
TLDR
The results indicate that vitamin D status may be marginally improved with weight loss in comparison with weight maintenance under similar conditions of supplemental vitamin D intake, and support the view that the association between obesity and lower serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D may be due to reversed causation with increased adiposity leading to suboptimal concentrations of circulating vitamin D.
Vitamin D supplementation and body fat mass: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
25(OH)D level is inversely correlated with PFM but cholecalciferol supplementation had no effect on PFM, and subgroup and meta-regression analyses indicated that age, latitude, and longitude are not sources of heterogeneity.
Vitamin D status and weight loss : a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized and nonrandomized controlled weight-loss trials 1 , 2
TLDR
The results indicate that vitamin D status may be marginally improved with weight loss in comparison with weight maintenance under similar conditions of supplemental vitamin D intake and support the view that the association between obesity and lower serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D may be due to reversed causation with increased adiposity leading to suboptimal concentrations of circulating vitamin D.
Obesity and overweight decreases the effect of vitamin D supplementation in adults: systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
The study observed that obesity in adults reduced the effect of vitamin D supplementation, and research should be developed on the optimal dose of vitaminD supplementation for people with obesity.
Non-skeletal health effects of vitamin D supplementation: A systematic review on findings from meta-analyses summarizing trial data
TLDR
The fact that most MAs on results from RCTs did not show a beneficial effect does not disprove the hypothesis suggested by observational findings on adverse health outcomes of low 25OHD levels.
The Effect of Vitamin D Supplementation on the Glycemic Status and the Percentage of Body Fat Mass in Adults with Prediabetes: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
It is demonstrated that 1000 IU vitamin D supplementation for 3 months can decrease the insulin resistance in individuals with prediabetes; however, it has no significant eect on body fat mass percentage.
Impact of vitamin D supplementation on adiposity in African-Americans
TLDR
In overweight African-Americans, short-term high-dose vitamin D supplementation did not alter BMI and did not cause any significant changes in BMI.
The effect of vitamin D supplementation on selected inflammatory biomarkers in obese and overweight subjects: a systematic review with meta-analysis
TLDR
This meta-analysis suggests that supplementation with vitamin D does not have a significant influence on changes in the concentration of selected inflammatory biomarkers in the obese and overweight subjects.

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.
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.
Effect of calcium intake on fat oxidation in adults: a meta‐analysis of randomized, controlled trials
TLDR
The effects of acute high calcium intake appear to point in the same direction, but further work is needed to permit a greater degree of certainty on how this effect is likely to increase rates of fat oxidation.
Efficacy of calcium supplementation for management of overweight and obesity: systematic review of randomized clinical trials.
TLDR
The evidence from randomized clinical trials suggests calcium supplementation generates small, statistically significant weight loss in overweight and obese individuals, but the clinical relevance of this finding is uncertain.
Mechanistic roles for calcium and vitamin D in the regulation of body weight
TLDR
Overall, there is consistent evidence that calcium and vitamin D increase whole body fat oxidation after single and multiple meals, and that calcium promotes a modest energy loss through increased faecal fat excretion, and threshold intake of these nutrients that would maximize metabolic and gastrointestinal outcomes are defined.
Effect of vitamin D replacement on musculoskeletal parameters in school children: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Vitamin D replacement had a positive impact on musculoskeletal parameters in girls, especially during the premenarcheal period, and there were consistent trends for increments in BMD and/or BMC at several skeletal sites.
Effect of calcium from dairy and dietary supplements on faecal fat excretion: a meta‐analysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
A systematic review with meta‐analysis of randomized, controlled trials of calcium (supplements or dairy) in healthy subjects, where faecal fat excretion was measured, found that dietary calcium intake is inversely related to body weight and body fat mass.
Vitamin D supplementation enhances the beneficial effects of weight loss on cardiovascular disease risk markers.
TLDR
The results indicate that a vitamin D supplement of 83 microg/d does not adversely affect weight loss and is able to significantly improve several cardiovascular disease risk markers in overweight subjects with inadequate vitamin D status participating in a weight-reduction program.
Effects of weight loss on serum vitamin D in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
A greater degree of weight loss, achieved through either a reduced-calorie diet or increased exercise, is associated with increased circulating 25(OH)D concentrations.
