The combination of dairy protein and dietary calcium (Ca) may enhance weight loss more effectively than either compound alone.
Fat mass was less in rats fed skim milk powder-high calcium than in those fed casein-low calcium or soy protein isolate-low calcium. Lean body mass was greater in rats fed skim milk powder than in those fed whey.
I am particularly interested in lean body mass being greater for skim milk powder vs whey considering whey is more expensive. Seems to indicate that if you want to lose weight and increase lean body mass then skim milk powder may be better than whey.
I was going to buy some whey protein concentrate but since my goals are to lose weight and increase lean body mass I am going to try skim milk powder... good pickup wombatK!
