The best way to lose weight fast is to reduce calorie
intake and increase exercise. That's something we hear all
the time but for some reason it's just not that easy to do.
As they say, easier said than done.
So sometimes we need a little help or a boost to keep us
going along the weight loss path. Could milk actually be
that boost we need? Imagine the excellent benefits. A food
that speeds the loss of fat, even stubborn fat around the
belly which is known to be linked with heart disease, and
at the same time builds up muscle (which in turn burns more
fat). That would be great, and studies show this is
actually the case with milk. It has a double whammy effect
of fat loss and muscle building which creates a chain
reaction of fat loss.
Now that is not to say that all you need do is sit and
drink milk all day. In this case expect to put on pounds
and not lose them. But combined with a sensible eating plan
and some exercise, the addition of milk to your diet on a
daily basis will speed up your weight loss.
In a random study of overweight people, drinking milk
had the effect of targeting the fat around the midsection
of the body. This is the fat that is sometimes the hardest
to lose and the last to melt away.
Now, just how does this work? Milk contains whey, which
is rich in the amino acid, leucine. Whey stimulates muscle
building which in turn acts as a fat-burning furnace. The
more fat that you replace with muscle the easier it gets to
add more muscle and get rid of more fat. It's a continuous
circle that helps you drop pounds.
I should add here that I am not an advocate of
pasteurized milk and I would recommend you find a small
local farm and purchase raw milk. If this is not possible,
buy organic from grass-fed cows and avoid ultra pasteurized
milk like the plague.
So if you have been looking for the best way to lose
weight, try adding milk to your daily regimen. You'll get
some extra calcium and also some extra help in burning off
some of that stubborn fat that keeps lingering.
