Weight Loss using Chocolate Milk 

Weight Loss using Chocolate Milk 

Milk products do a belly good, helping it retain lean muscle and store less fat. Take it from the dieters in a University of Tennessee study who ate 6 ounces of fat-free yogurt with every meal and lost 81% more abdominal fat than those who cut calories alone.When you’re feeling too ill to eat, or have indigestion, what could be better than a gentle, thick glass of milk to settle your stomach?  Milk is in fact slightly acidic, but far less so than the gastric acid naturally produced by the stomach.

If you often unwind before bed with a bowl of ice cream or buttered popcorn, try cutting the snack out. The calories saved may be enough for you to lose a few pounds a year. If you’re hungry, “eat something on the light side, like a piece of fruit or some cereal with milk,” says Ellie Krieger, a registered dietitian and the author of The Food You Crave . Night eaters tend to overeat (which leads to weight gain no matter when it’s done) because often they’ve been skimping during the day and come home famished. Being so hungry that you grab whatever is at hand means you’re more likely to make poor choices. “Don’t go longer than about five hours without eating,” says Jo Ann Hattner, a registered dietitian and a nutrition consultant in San Francisco. Just be careful to keep your meals and snacks small.[wp_ad_camp_5]

A glass of milk before bed is going to set you back. Milk is actually known in the fitness community circles as an agent for healthy weight gain. … Your metabolism slows down a bit as you sleep, so calories consumed right before bed are slightly tougher to burn.[wp_ad_camp_3]
