Dairy Free With Low Bodyfat Benefits From Dairy?

Recommended Posts

I know this is more a "dairy free" topic, but it seems a large number of us are also dairy free, especially during the first stages of healing from intestinal damage.

My issue is this: I keep reading articles that talk about how dairy is linked with low body fat. I don't remember all the specifics, but it is something i have read from a number of different healthy sources/newsletters.

Is there any way to get this benefit without consuming the dairy? I don't think it's the calcium [some amino acid in dairy?]

If anyone has more info on this [the benefits of dairy and body fat more specifically] and also if it is possible to obtain them dairy free [or not!] I'd love to hear more...

For clarification, here's an example of the type of information I am referring to:

http://www.webmd.com/diet/news/20050729/hi...y-fat-up-muscle

"Zemel looked at 34 obese black women and men who did not eat any more or less food during the 24-week study. Half ate three daily servings of dairy foods in place of lean meat. These people did not lose weight. But they lost nearly five pounds of body fat, gained muscle, had lower blood pressure, and lost an inch and a half around their waists."

Anyone know why this is and if it's possible to replicate without dairy?

I've exercised a lot over the years and have been an advocate of using low fat milk after a workout to help promote muscle growth. Read a article a few sundays back by one of the medical docs who writes for the paper and they backed up what I have been doing. They said to stay away from the so called power energy drinks, drink regular water while you are exercising and drink a large glass of low fat milk after you exercise. They also backed up what Spunky007 said about losing fat and building muscle. However, I haven't found any non-dairy substitutes. Sorry.

A calcium rich diet is what they mean. They say dairy for the norm because that is easy for people to understand.

Are you sure? I thought I read one of these articles in specific reference to soy vs. cow milk [saying that it was the cows milk that has been linked to promoting lean body mass]...and both of these are sources of calcium...?
