Many of us want to lose weight, but it’s very difficult to do that, according tomedia BGR. Reducing calories is obviously a top priority, but when it comes to milk, the trend toward low-fat milk for weight loss may be much easier than you think. According to a new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, scientists analyzed data from 28 different studies to explore the potential link between drinking certain types of milk and overall weight gain and obesity risk. Data show that to stay slim, full-fat milk is the way to go, at least for children.
Data on what type of milk is “best” remains unclear. Many doctors still recommend converting milk from children to low-fat milk at an early age, but after sifting through data on nearly 21,000 children and adolescents between the ages of 1 and 18, the researchers found no significant benefits from the conversion.
“Most children in Canada and the United States drink milk every day, which is the main source of dietary fat for many children,” Dr. Jonathan Maguire, lead author of the study, said in a statement. In our review, children who follow current recommendations to switch to low-fat milk at age two are no thinner than those who drink full-fat milk. “
However, these data not only do not support a change to low-fat milk, but also show that sticking to whole milk is actually beneficial. In 18 of the 28 studies reviewed by researchers, 18 found that children who drank full-fat milk were less likely to be overweight or obese than those who drank low-fat milk.
The exact reason (perhaps full-fat milk can help a person to sat iety for a long time, thus preventing overeating) has yet to be proven, but these figures cannot be ignored.
