'U' Study: Vitamin D May Be Tied To Weight Loss - wcco.com

'U' Study: Vitamin D May Be Tied To Weight Loss - wcco.com:

"A University of Minnesota study has found that higher levels of vitamin D on low-calorie diet may help people lose more weight, especially around the abdomen.

Researcher Shalamar Sibley, M.D., headed the study that measured 38 overweight men and women participants who had insufficient vitamin D levels. The participants were monitored for 11 weeks while on diet programs that contained 750 calories fewer than their estimated daily needs.

The study found that the subjects lost a quarter to a half pound more fat when their vitamin D level was increased."
