Calcium Doesn't Enhance Fat Loss In Conjunction With Exercise

In past studies, calcium has been reported to enhance fat-loss efforts while in a caloric deficit. This could be due to reduced appetite, reduced dietary fat absorption, and/or increased use of fat for energy. In a recent study, however, scientists gave subjects 400 milligrams of calcium for two weeks and 1,500 milligrams of calcium, separated by four weeks of no supplementation. The scientists were looking to see if more fat or carbs would be burned during exercise while on high-calcium intakes versus lower intakes and whether subjects’ appetite sensations at rest were higher or lower. The conclusion was no significant differences between carbohydrate/fat utilization during exercise, nor an increase/decrease in appetite sensations.
