#4 Powerfood: Dairy Products

Fat-free or low-fat milk, yogurt, Kefir, cheese and cottage cheese are some other power foods.

Constituents that help build strong bones and assist with weight loss are Calcium, vitamins A and B12, riboflavin, phosphorus, and potassium.

Avoid the imposters: whole milk and frozen yogurt 🙁

We all know that dairy strengthens bones, but there’s a lot of other good it does. Evidence has shown that calcium helps control your weight. A study done by the University of Tennessee found that dieters who consumed between 1,200 and 1,300 milligrams of calcium per day lost nearly twice as much weight as those who consumed less calcium. It’s possible that the mineral prevents weight gain by increasing the breakdown of body fat and inhibiting its formation.

Of the dairy products listed above, choose mile first since as a liquid, it take up more room in your stomach — leaving you fuller, faster.

I personally need to drink more milk. We always have fat-free milk in the house (from Halo-Farms) because Jeannie loves it and the boys drink a lot of it.
