 Swap Juice With Skimmed Milk 'To Fight Extra Flab'

Is the daily glass of fruit juice during breakfast not helping you maintain weight? Well, then swap it with skim milk and see those love handles disappearing. That's the conclusion of a new research by Aussie researchers.

The study, quite contrary to weight-gain fears surrounding dairy products, has suggested that a glass of milk with your cereal or toast is more effective at ceasing your appetite at lunchtime than a morning juice drink.

"While it might not help you lose weight, it seems definitely to suppress the appetite enough to help you keep it off. That really goes against what most people understand about dairy products," theage.com.au quoted lead researcher Dr Emma Dove, from the School of Medicine and Pharmacology at the University of Western Australia, as saying.

For the study, the researchers recruited 34 people and gave them juice one day and milk on another, and both times supplied them with a big platter of sandwiches four hours later.

The results indicated that after drinking milk, participants tended to eat 10 per cent less and even rated themselves as feeling much fuller and more satisfied.

Dove claimed that skim milk and juice had the same energy content, but it was the higher protein content of milk that gave it that extra edge in losing weight.

"There are probably lots of mechanisms at play but we think it comes down to the activation of different types of hormones related to appetite, and how slowly milk moves through the digestive system. So there's a message here that a change like this could potentially help with weight management," she said.

The study will be presented at a medical research conference in Brisbane.
