Synopsis:
Speed up your metabolism and lose weight with the revolutionary weight-loss program found in The Calcium Key

"Wow–a diet book that is actually based on science! At long last, a book that combines the valid research to support its claims, simple explanations on determining how to put the proven methods into action, and meal plans and recipes to encourage the reader. I literally went and got myself a piece of cheese as I read chapter three and have added low-fat yogurt to my shopping list."
–Alice Domar, Ph.D., author of the bestselling Self-Nurture, Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School, and Director of the Mind/Body Center for Women’s Health at Boston IVF

"The Calcium Key is a new direction for weight loss that is healthy, tasty and easy. Getting three servings a day of low-fat milk, cheese, or yogurt instead of some of your current choices will burn fat, reduce calories and change how your body looks."
–George L. Blackburn, M.D., Ph.D., S. Daniel Abraham Associate Professor of Nutrition,

Harvard Medical School; and Chief, Nutrition Metabolism Laboratory, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

"Zemel paints on an amazingly broad canvas. . . . He shows how calcium operates at every step of the way–and why a high calcium intake is important for everyone throughout life."
–Robert P. Heaney, M.D., John A. Creighton University Professor and Professor of Medicine at Creighton University

Now the truth can be revealed: cheese, yogurt, and milk are all powerful ingredients in the war against fat. Now you can enjoy the low-fat dairy foods you like as part of a sensible weight-loss plan that really works with the help of The Calcium Key.

  • Increase the amount of weight you lose by 70%
  • Increase the amount of body fat you lose by 64%
  • Lose 47% more fat from your belly
  • Most important, keep the weight off for good!

Review:
Like tens of millions of other people, you want to lose weight. But do you believe you need to deprive yourself in order to do so? Perhaps you think you need to cut out the dairy foods you love in an effort to restrict calories? Far from it! In several groundbreaking studies, Dr. Michael Zemel, a leading scientist and researcher and the discoverer of the calcium—weight loss connection, has proven that a calcium-rich diet actually boosts your metabolism, helping you lose weight–70% more weight and 64% more fat than through calorie restriction alone. By following the simple weight-loss plan in The Calcium Key, you can potentially double your body’s ability to lose weight and fat. The good news for all of us who love dairy foods: eating and drinking calcium-rich dairy foods is the most effective way to deliver the calcium that can jump-start your weight-loss success.

The proven premise of The Calcium Key is simple: eat more calcium-rich foods, lose more weight. Backed by patented, peer-reviewed research in study after study, Dr. Zemel’s revolutionary weight-loss program reveals the precise portions of mostly low-fat dairy foods–yogurt, milk, even the cheeses you love–that will work wonders for your individual weight-loss needs. This easy and delicious plan features foods that are not only downright delicious but are also scientifically proven to satisfy your appetite and reduce hunger. You’ll get thin the safe way while enjoying every meal.

Brought to life with the inspiring stories of real people Dr. Zemel has worked with, The Calcium Key shows you how to:

  • Triple the rate of fat lost from your abdominal area–the "belly fat" that puts you at greatest risk for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, and Type 2 diabetes
  • Determine your individualized calorie requirements for weight loss based on your current weight and level of activity
  • Maximize your low-GI foods (good carbs) and minimize high-GI foods (bad carbs)
  • Tame your appetite with highly satisfying foods

Filled with customized meal plans for your individual needs and packed with dozens of recipes for main courses, soups, snacks, side dishes, and desserts, The Calcium Key is a breakthrough diet book that shows you how to lose weight by eating the foods you love.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.A breakthrough diet book from the discoverer of the calcium-weight loss connection--as seen on CNN and in Reader s Digest Many people cut back on or stop eating dairy products when they try to lose weight. That s a mistake. As Michael Zemel s pioneering, peer-reviewed clinical research has proved, consuming low-fat dairy products actually helps people lose weight--70 per cent more weight (and 64 per cent more fat) than calorie restriction alone. The key is calcium, which causes fat cells to produce less fat and helps the body break down existing fat. Now, in the year s most innovative diet book, Dr. Zemel translates his research into an amazingly effective weight-loss program. According to Dr. Zemel, consuming low-fat dairy foods--milk, yogurt, and cheese--is the easiest way to boost calcium intake, though he also discusses calcium supplements and other sources of calcium. Complete with tasty, nutritional low-fat menu plans that help people get the 1,200 to 1,600 milligrams of calcium they need daily to stimulate weight loss, The Calcium Key is just what people need to shed pounds fast and stay slim. Michael Zemel, Ph.D., is a Professor in the Departments of Nutrition and Medicine at the University of Tennesee and is the Director of the Nutrition Institute at the University. He has published more than 120 research papers in such prestigious journals as The New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American College of Nutrition, Journal of Nutrition, International Journal of Obesity and Related Metabolic Disorders, American Journal of Physiology, Journal of Endocrinology, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, and many more. He discovered the calcium-obesity connection and has received a genetic patent on this area. He has been on CNN and the Discovery Channel and his work has been featured in O: The Oprah Magazine, Time, Redbook, Ladies Home Journal, SELF, Prevention, and more; his work was the subject of a cover article in Reader s Digest this past summer. Coauthor Bill Gottlieb has extraordinary credentials and media connections; he was Editor-in-Chief of health books at Rodale Books, is the author of the 400,000-copy best seller Alternative Cures (Rodale), and writes about health for many major national publications.
