People that consume dairy products burn fat at a higher rate than people that avoid them. This allows them to eat a higher level of calories each day without gaining weight.
Despite an unfavorable fat (saturated) and an unfavorable carbohydrate (lactose), the research on milk shows it to be favorable for weight loss. The dairy constituents that appear to be most beneficial are protein, vitamin d, calcium and other minerals, lactoferrin and other immunoglobulins.
That’s fascinating, because you would think that it would be the complete opposite. Vitamin D should be made a part of a daily diet regardless though.
thanks for the post.
hey Jesse, i used to have soy not milk in my fridge as well until i heard that so many diet experts do not recommend soy, so i decided to go back to milk. i’m not sure yet about it but decided to let go soy anyway.
That article is talking about supplements, not whole foods.
I don’t know of any foods that are adequate sources of DLPA or 5-HTP, but Leucine is a branch chained amino acid that is found in any protein food.
You’ve got a nice list of “things that suppress appetite” in one of your articles. Here:
Appetite Control Top Five
1. Fiber. In various forms, fiber is an excellent appetite suppressant. Some fibers increase CCK.
2. DLPA. A combination of both the L- and D- forms of phenylalanine, DLPA increases both CCK and norepinephrine. Take it on an empty stomach.
3. 5-HTP. Increases serotonin levels, which decreases appetite.
4. Green Tea. In addition to being a fantastic antioxidant, green tea positively affects leptin signaling.
5. Long Chain Fatty Acids. The longer chain fatty acids release more CCK and GLP-1.
6. Leucine. This amino acid signals the brain, via mTOR, that ample protein is available.
So, where do I get these things? What foods contain Leucine, or DLPA, or 5-HTP?
That’s good to know. I love milk. That picture looks sooo good but in my fridge there is no milk but soy 🙁
