Soy and skim milk equally effective for weight loss


Soy milk is not for everyone, just ask my kids. Prior to a long car trip last month, I bought shelf stable, mini soy milks, complete with straws. They look like juice boxes, but much healthier. I figured they'd love cold soy milk on the road. After taking their first sip, they got this ugly look on their faces. My six year old said "Ugh!" and my three year old said, "Gross, this tastes like coffee milk!" Talk about ruined expectations.


Soy and skim milk equally effective for weight loss

I happen to love all lactose-free soy milk and so does my digestive system. Shape recently clued readers in that soy milk is just as good an accompaniment to a low-cal diet as skim milk. Northern Illinois University researchers compared women following an eight-week, low-cal diet that incorporated either three cups of light soy milk or skim milk. Both soy and skim delivered similar weight loss of approximately eight and a half pounds per participant.


Researchers surmise it may be the calcium that helped participants lose the weight. Both skim and soy contain about 300 milligrams of calcium per cup.
