Need to mooove a few pounds before summer? Drinking more milk could help you do this...

I'll just start this off by making the point that if your goal is to tone up a bit before this summer - first of all you should have started in January (that's a topic for another day) and secondly you are going to need a tailored exercise and nutrition plan. Luckily this is something I can provide for you - visit my website arlandcraikpersonaltraining.co.uk for more information. Now once you've got the foundation then we can start talking about the nitty gritty...

When it comes to getting in shape there are a number of things available to help you get the best possible results from your diet and your training. For years people have been using supplements like creatine to give them an edge in the weight room, but when it comes to fat loss research has shown that drinking low-fat cows milk in conjunction with a calorie-controlled diet can result in greater reductions in body fat (Faghih et al., 2009).


This is thought to be in part due to the large amount of calcium contained in milk. However, taking a calcium supplement alone doesn't have the same effect and it is believed that cows milk also contains other bioactive substances that regulate the accumulation of fat tissue - sorry vegans... That being said it's critical to remember that the added fat burning effect of drinking milk was found to enhance the results of a calorie restricted diet. Which brings me back to my first point that if your goal is to get leaner then first and foremost you must follow a nutrition and exercise plan that works for you.

A tailored approach to getting in shape is always the best option because every individual will face different challenges to succeed. But ultimately it comes down to the same thing - a diet rich in fruit and vegetables, lean protein sources and a small amount of carbs; combined with a mixture of strength training and short intense cardiovascular workouts. This is a proven formula and has never failed for me as a trainer -You can read over 40 of my clients' testimonials here.
