Dairy products are packed with whey, a protein that helps promote the formation of lean body mass which in turn helps you burn more calories.
Because dairy contains a high level of protein, it helps keep you feeling full and satisfied.
Some research has found that a diet rich in dairy may also directly promote weight loss.
A study published in Obesity Research showed that obese individuals who ate a diet rich in dairy lost significantly more body fat and weight than other individuals eating the same number of calories but following a low-dairy diet.
