We've all heard the benefits of dairy for strong bones. However, most people are unaware of the benefits dairy has on body composition.
Multiple studies show that increased dairy consumption during your weight-loss diet leads to 1) greater overall weight loss and 2) greater lean body mass gains when compared to control diets. The significance of these results should not escape you. It appears that increased dairy consumption signals your body to burn more body fat and preserve muscle mass. More importantly, the increased dairy diets led to a greater reduction in body fat mass when compared to control diets.
During long-term recomposition diets, the goal is to reduce body-fat and maintain as much muscle mass as possible. The studies cited above are promising, and those seeking body composition optimization should consider incorporating more dairy into their diets.
